1. Tyrants flock together. But the media is so busy fellating them, that "down" is now officially "up."

Canada, our northern border ally? "Fuck 'em!"
Mexico, out southern border ally? "Fuck 'em, multiple times!"
North Korea (which the last GOP administration consigned to the "Axis of Evil"? "Hey, what a great, great, great, HISTORIC photo-op, it's master diplomacy at it's finest, the world's a safer place for this, it's the start of something big, Trump's gonna win in 2020, hell, yeah, MAGA!"

Or something like that. Unfortunately, I fear that too many Americans are just gullible enough to swallow this diversion as something momentous, when it has the capacity to fall apart after a mere tweet or two.

Laura PourMeADrink, please pour me a drink as well. And keep pouring, thanks.

4. Spending vacation with family and wingnut

In-laws. Their biggest talk/goal/hope at this moment is that trump wins Nobel. Nothing else.

5. Dear God. I'm so sorry.

Remind them of the time Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and how "warmly" that was received by Republicans. They were knocking the Nobel Committee. Noted windbag Rush Limbaugh said notably said:

"...Gore, Carter, Obama, soon Bill Clinton. You see a pattern here, folks? Liberal sellouts! Liberal sellouts get this prize. George Bush liberates 50 million Muslims, Ronald Reagan liberates hundreds of millions of Europeans, saves parts of Latin America. Any awards? No, just derision. Obama gives speeches trashing his own country -- and he gets a prize for it."

This actually makes total sense when you look at who the Nobel people are, these elite Norwegians, Europeans. They love what Obama is doing. And this fully exposes, folks, the illusion that is Obama. This is a greater embarrassment than losing the Olympics bid was...-
<snip>
The Nobel Peace Prize just told Obama, Look, we love what you're doing, you are destroying your country as a superpower. Keep it up, bud! This is what we expected, and you're doing a damn good job. Those are accomplishments, folks, and in the eyes of the Nobel Peace Prize committee, these are the accomplishments they're looking for. He's basically emasculating this country, and they applauded today with this award. They love a weakened, neutered United States, and this is their way of promoting the concept and this slam-dunk."

There was even some urban folklore around the tall tale, as it was spread so rapidly across the net. The most collected version is a lie that reads: "I have seen an article posted on Facebook that says that President Obama has been asked by the Nobel Committee to return his Peace prize. Is this true?"

2. Between the short American attention span and the Trump gishgallop...

Korea will naturally give him a big boost.

Fortunately, it works the other way too.
