We’re sure most people in the Twitchy reading audience are old enough to remember when Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on the promise of all the things he was going to do during his presidency, not for anything he’d accomplished. Now President Trump has been formally nominated twice, for the Israel-United Arab Emirates peace deal and then for the historic agreement between Kosovo and Serbia.
That’s all too much for Atlantic writer Graeme Wood, who thinks it’s time to end the Nobel Peace Prize now that it’s been tainted by Trump’s nomination.

Wood’s gripe with the Nobel Peace Prize extends way beyond Trump’s nomination, but that was the breaking point. Wood writes that the Nobel committee has made itself hostage “to wacky attention-seeking nominations like Trump’s.”
Scorched earth, literally nothing the left won’t burn down to defeat their enemies

Why not? They suggest abolishing the USA to prevent his re-election

The Atlantic is unquestionably the world leader in self-importance.

Well at least they’ve established that they are an unbiased news outlet.

Why does the Atlantic seem to think they have any influence?

Somebody throw The Atlantic an extra life jacket. This is hard to watch. I used to love that mag.

Does anyone know why Barry got one?

They should’ve suggested that after Obama won for well, being Obama.

So would that make Trump the last person to get one?

The media would be screaming acclaim for these truly historic Middle East accomplishments if it were any other President but Trump. They can’t be intellectually honest enough to acknowledge the tremendous events that just happened in the Middle East.

The mainstream media has been awfully low-key about these historic peace agreements.

Democrats always want to cancel or change anything they have no control over. All about power.

If they had their way over the last four years, we’d have done away with ICE, the police, college tuition, rent, the Supreme Court, the Senate, and the Electoral College, for starters.
