2 Norwegian Lawmakers Nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

Source: Associated Press

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Two Norwegian lawmakers have nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after the Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, lawmakers with the populist Progress Party, told Norwegian news agency NTB on Wednesday that Trump “had taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea.”

A group of U.S. lawmakers also are backing Trump’s nomination for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

The process of considering candidates and awarding the Nobel Peace Prize is done in Norway. Nominations must be sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee before Feb. 1. The committee doesn’t publicly comment on who was nominated, information which is required to be kept secret for 50 years.

1. Why don't these two ass-kissers wait a couple of weeks...

This is so fucking ridiculous. It's obvious this is what Putin wants. I wonder how much he paid those two?

Prediction: Kim will say he is removing his nuclear weapons. But Kim and Trump (and Putin) will not allow inspectors or anyone to investigate if it's true.

18. Huh. They're populist "anti-s" attacking Norway's government.

That's what's happening here. Trump's destructive, so these idiots like him.

Of course, anti-establishment populists could also easily be stupid and destructive enough to try to use Russia (!) to help them bring down their own government. Even in Nortway. And I'm sure Putin's helping them all he can.

5. Why don't they nominate Kim Jong Un, too, while they're at it?

The meeting was originally his idea, after all. He's responsible for it at least as much as trump, if not more.

19. I think it would be more appropriate if the leader of South Korea were nominated. He did the hard..

work, and Trump swooped in for a photo op, which put Kim on equal footing with the "leader of the free world". This is the sickest reality show on tv, except it's real life.

14. Trump said nice things about Norwegians.....

like how he wished they were immigrating to the U.S. instead of those brown people from south of the border.

Trump should get a Nobel Prize; for narcissistic lunacy. Maybe the two Norwegian fascists can get the Nobel Committee to add a new category, just for "The Donald". If he doesn't get a Nobel Prize he'll start calling them "fake prizes" that you get in a box of Cracker Jacks. Just wait.

11. Trump is in good company, his idol Adolph Hitler was also nominated for a Nobel Prize, and of course

he didn't win one, nor will Trump.

Like Stephen Colbert said recently, Trumps big mouth is just a cock holster for Putin.

12. If Trump gets a Nobel Prize he'll try to get Obama's Prize revoked.

That would be in line with Donnie Two Scoops' agenda -- to undo everything President Obama did.
