Trump took credit for Ethiopian PM's Nobel Prize because he confused Eritrea with Egypt

Trump took credit for Ethiopian PM's Nobel Prize because he confused Eritrea with Egypt

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/1/11/1910847/-Trump-took-credit-for-Ethiopian-PM-s-Nobel-Prize-because-he-confused-Eritrea-with-Egypt?detail=emaildkre

They both start with the letter “E” and they’re both in Africa. That’s close enough, eggheads! What, you expect the actual president of the United States to know the difference? Go jerk off to a world atlas, nerds!

So at his skinhead rally* on Thursday night, Donald Trump took credit for Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, saying, “I made a deal, I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, ‘What, did I have something do with it?’ Yeah. But that’s the way it is.”

The Washington Post:

[H]is comments Thursday included a remark that caught the attention of many in Ethiopia, whose prime minister was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, largely for his work securing a peace deal with neighboring Eritrea after decades of hostilities.

...

Trump played no apparent role in the Eritrea peace deal, but Washington has played a convening role in another deal Ethio­pian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is seeking with Egypt that will regulate how quickly Ethi­o­pia can fill a new dam it has built in the upper reaches of the Nile River that has major implications for the flow of water Egypt relies on economically.

News Flash Mike Pence is an idiot too. He doesn't know the difference between eminent and imminent

On MSNBC about 20 minutes ago.

Very rough quote, "Soleimani was ready for eminent attack."


eminent adjective

(of a person) famous and respected within a particular sphere or profession.
"one of the world's most eminent statisticians"

Imminent about to happen.
"they were in imminent danger of being swept away"

The reason why no Americans or Iraqis were killed in the missile attack was because ...

.... Iran gave a heads up to the P.M. of Iraq, they purposely choose not to
target the Americans, and they did it in the middle of the night.

Did that mother fucker just blame Obama for Iran's actions?

As Trump waits to come out may I offer this Trump moment

Important Work to be done this AM. Blow up their phones. We have to stop the madness.

This morning call both of your senators and your congress critter (especially if they are republicans)
and tell them no war with Iran. Such a war would be un-winnable, it would soon spread to other
countries, millions could die, it is being pushed by Trump and company in order to distract from
impeachment and Donald Trump is a madman who has talked about using a nuclear weapon.

Give whatever points you want but the bottom line is no war w/Iraq.

This is madness ... I just can't take it.

Everybody call your Congress Critters in the AM and demand that we don't end up in
un winnable war with Iran in the middle east and we need huge protests nationwide too.

And I get a sick feeling that Trump wants to use a nuclear weapon too.

Be happy ... "it" is getting to him. 1/4/20 Trump looks like shit.

That is not a healthy man.

Now who says you can't find love in this world?

I just got this email. And all this little babe needs is my credit card info and then she just can't
wait to meet me.

sup.
I'm eager and ambitious: I want to discover a true superman that will ravish me day and night.

Do I have this right? Trump canceled our deal with Iran and is now trying to start a war w/Iran.

Trump was installed as POTUS by Putin.
Republicans knew about the Russian help then and now are actively trying to keep the facts
of the Russian/Trump Campaign treachery covered up. See Bill Barr, Mitch McConnell, Paul
Ryan, Mike Pence, Kevin McCarthy, Sean Hannity, Devin Nunes, and so on.
Trump pulled us out of a very good treaty with Iran because "the black guy" got it done.
Trump has now assassinated 2 Iranian leaders after talking to Vlad Putin and the Russian
Foreign Minister. This was after bombing a faction in Iraq that is loyal to Iran.
Trump is now trying to start a war with Iran to deflect from his impeachment and his up
coming trial in the senate.
Trump's mental state is declining by the day.
Trump wants to use a nuclear weapon in Iran.

Damn, I am falling in love all over again.
