Seriously, someone nominated Donald Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize

wenn23442279

The beginning of this week was not great for Donald Trump. He came in #2 in Iowa, meaning he is a big, fat LOOS-AH, which he hates. Plus, his favorite singer, Adele, dissed him pretty hard. While Trump was gracious about his second-place finish on the night of the Iowa Caucus, he spent the rest of the week being a sore loser and demanding that Ted Cruz’s victory be nullified.

In case you’re not following the insider shenanigans, you can read about the situation here. That’s actually not the point of this story. The point of this story is that things are looking up for Trump this week. Because someone nominated him for a Nobel Peace Prize. I sh-t you not.

Donald Trump, purveyor of peace? According to reports, the Republican presidential hopeful is one among hundreds who have been nominated as potential recipients of the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. Nobel watcher Kristian Berg Harpviken, the director of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo, Norway, told French media that Trump, 69, is being nominated for “his vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS, nuclear Iran and Communist China.”

Other surprising Nobel Prize nominations in the past have included Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Vladimir Putin and even Adolf Hitler.

A nomination does not guarantee a win, of course. Of the hundreds of candidates who are named each year, the Norwegian Nobel Committee sifts through the names and narrows the pool down to a final winner. (The 2015 prize went to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet.) Other nominees for this year include the Greek islanders who helped refugees, Pope Francis and a champion for ISIS rape victims.

[From Us Weekly]

Yes, the Nobel Peace Prize nomination process is famously “open” – anyone can nominate anyone. You guys could nominate me for my outstanding work in the field of gossip-as-peace. And I personally think I would be more worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize than a fascist orange baby like Donald Trump.

    “Fascist orange baby”. Omg….thank you for that.

  2. MelissaManifesto says:

    The end is not only near, it’s actually here.

  3. Girlinbayou says:

    Yeah, the “Nobel peace of sh!t prize”

  4. Crumpet says:

    Oh my, that is hilarious.

  5. AlmondJoy says:

    Deeeeeeep sigh. It boggles the mind but then I remember that more people than we would actually like to admit are Trump lovers. Nothing should surprise us anymore.

  6. Sarah01 says:

    I used to think Nobel Peace Prize was the epitome of awards but not so much in recent years, this just underscores that any idiot can nominate any other idiot.
    I had high hopes for Obama as did the Nobel peeps and many others, he was not and still is not deserving of that award. peace is not his forte.

    • CornyBlue says:

      But barring Obama they have given it to highly worthy people very much proven in their field. I obviously do not mean Obama is not good at what he does but when he got the prize was extremely weird.

    • Breakfast Margaritas says:

      Because Obama is a warmongering fool invading countries who had nothing to do with September 11, like George W. Bush?

      • J-Who says:

        Yes! He went into Syria and Libya and bombed the sh*t out of them for absolutely no reason. Bush and Obama both should be taken out back.

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    He’s nominated … For the Nobel peace prize because… He’s threatening? I think I’m missing something.

    • Tash says:

      I was thinking the same thing…this doesn’t make any sense.

    • Kitten says:

      So confuzzled.

    • Esmom says:

      GoodNames, but don’t you know that threats are the best way to achieve peace? Anything else that might resemble diplomacy, to use Sarah Palin’s word salad, is “kowtowing.” Sigh.

      • Rachel says:

        You know what, I think you may have hit the nail on the head. With that explanation of *why* he was nominated, I bet Sarah Palin was the person who nominated him.

      • Esmom says:

        Ha, Rachel, it makes sense that Palin would nominate him, if she’s angling for a cabinet position. What a freak show.

    • M.A.F. says:

      Seeing how the story also points out Stalin, Mussolini, & Hitler as also being nominated is a little telling. Is this foreshadowing? Are we going to heed the warning?

  8. Lizzie McGuire says:

    Well it’s nice that he joins the surprising nominees Joseph Stalin, Hitler & Putin. They all have a lot in common not surprised on that. This is getting ridiculous, are people taking him seriously? I’m just having a hard time believing that there’s people who look up to this guy.

    Kaiser for a Nobel peace prize 2016! For peacefully gossip reporting about Ben Affleck’s back tattoo & fingers in the booty as* b*tchgate

  9. CornyBlue says:

    As a non American this Trump thing is mildly entertaining to watch.

    • Eliz says:

      Must be nice. As an American, I can tell you that it’s f-cking terrifying to watch.

      • Capepopsie says:

        I’ve got to tell you that as a non american I find it terrifying aswell!!

      • Girlinbayou says:

        I agree. It’s completely terrifying. That’s all we need is a trigger happy, loose cannon manning the helm.

      • CornyBlue says:

        Yes i meant to add it must be absolute hell actually living there as non racist sexist member of society.

      • Holmes says:

        Mind you, I’m also scared of Trump, but Ted Cruz is the one that really frightens me. Donald Trump is really just a bloviating wind bag, when it comes down to it. If Ted Cruz is elected president, I have no doubt World War 3 will break out. He has no remorse.

      • MAC says:

        +10 Billion (joke) –Yes and so were his tax returns he released to the public.

      • Solanacaea (Nighty) says:

        As a non american I’m pretty terrified too, he seems like so willing to engage in wars… The world is really coming to an end…

    • Zip says:

      As a non-American I wonder what the h*ll is going on with some people over there. I always think that one must be exceptionally stupid to support a dangerous moron like Trump. But then I remember that we have equally stupid people here in Germany supporting the PEGIDA movement and the racists of the AfD party. It really scares me.

  10. Sixer says:

    Did they steal “peace through strength” from 1984?

  11. H says:

    Was that person on crack or is this a joke?

    • Goo says:

      That was my thought in 2009….

    • BNA Fn says:

      anyone is with me on this? I bet Trump nominated himself. Remember Trump , I am winning in all the poles, HUGH!!! , wrote a Drs note himself saying he would be the most healthy President of all times if elected.

  12. DahliaDee says:

    How much did he pay for the nomination?

  13. Citresse says:

    I really like what Trump did for the vets when he skipped the last debate but a Nobel Peace Prize? No way.
    ps- I’m also now disappointed Trump has decided to be a sore loser via Twitter after such a respectful speech immediately after losing. It would be better to stay quiet until NH. But didn’t Carson also suspect voter fraud in Iowa?

    • Kitten says:

      While I commend for attempting the impossible–finding one redeemable quality about Donald Trump–the truth is that he didn’t do sh*t for the vets.

      He did that veterans rally for his campaign.

      It was a strategic move because he knew he was leading in the polls and didn’t want to risk losing any steam by potentially sh*tting his pants in the debate. In other words, it was better for his numbers to not show up, than to show up and lose.

      Also, all the “donations” for veterans that are supposedly going “directly to veterans” are actually going directly into Trump’s non-profit. There’s zero accountability for how those funds are going to be spent.

      Trump has never given two f*cks about veterans. In fact, he detests veterans so much that he doesn’t even want to see them “polluting” his streets:

      This is from a letter he wrote in 1991to the New York state assembly:

      “While disabled veterans should be given every opportunity to earn a living, is it fair to do so to the detriment of the city as a whole or its tax paying citizens and businesses?… Do we allow Fifth Ave., one of the world’s finest and most luxurious shopping districts, to be turned into an outdoor flea market, clogging and seriously downgrading the area?”

      • Esmom says:

        Yes, all very well said. I was going to say that Trump didn’t do squat for the vets last week. 100% self promotion and nothing more.

      • doofus says:

        and let’s not forget his assessment of veteran and former POW John McCain.

      • Citresse says:

        Yeah when you think someone is doing something good for people who served the country, then I was thinking: did Trump’s sons serve their country? I mean, did they sign up in any way? Air cadet as teens? Any kind of boot camp?
        But the bigger question (for now) remains: was there voter fraud in Iowa?

    • Scal says:

      In terms of the voter fraud-what Cruz did was mega shady-but I don’t know if I’d call it ‘fraud’. Basically his team started telling people at caucus events that Ben Carson was quitting his campaign and also spread it online. Before the polls closed, and to encourage voters should go ahead and change their vote. They claim they ‘heard it on cnn’ and told their grassroots support, Carson is claiming it was a smear campaign.

      Carson claims that his results were faulty because of this. Trump is claiming that the 3 points that Cruz gained from Carson were the result of ‘fraud’ hence this whole brouhaha.

      Frankly Trump is just trying to make Cruz look bad as he’s nervous now. I don’t think for one second that he truly believes that Cruz cheated, he’s just trying to rally up his base.

    It’s open, huh? I’m so nominating Amber Rose for deflating some huge ego with a hashtag. Such huge contribution to humanity.

  15. Hollz says:

    The Nobel organization has a “50 year Secrecy Rule” where they do not release the names of those nominated for 50 years…so guess where this information is coming from…THE DONALD himself.

    • SamiHami says:

      Well, it’s no more ridiculous than them giving one to Obama a few years ago.

      • J-Who says:

        Amen! SamiHami – ^5

        If they have a 50 year secrecy rule, then how is it that the winners are announced every year?

      • Lambda says:

        Actually, SamiHami, after the Cairo speech Obama gave in 2009, it could be construed that he was promoting the cause of peace in the Middle East. I always took his Nobel prize award as a hasty and misguided attempt to push the president into a peace-building initiative there (Carter style? don’t know). I don’t agree with him as a recipient, but it’s not like he could refuse it.
        J-Who, awarded, nominated, different words.

      • Lady D says:

        Same question as J-Who.

    • Hollz says:

      J-Who “Nominees” are not “winners”

      Oh, Just saw that Lambda said the same thing. Thank you.

  16. Darkladi says:

    OMG…Michelle Bachman was right- we are living in the End Times!!! 😮💀

  17. kri says:

    I nominate Idris Elba because I am sure his Piece is Noble. Oh, wait..is that something different?

  18. Turkey says:

    Oh. Sweet baby Jesus. Between this and the news that 19 and counting is coming back, it’s been a sh$t week. As an American, this is terrifying that Trump is a prevalent as he is. And I’m all for KAISER FOR THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE!

  19. Nancy says:

    The Nobel Piece of Sh!t Award.

  20. J-Who says:

    Not any crazier than giving Obama his Peace Prize…..smdh

  21. Betti says:

    OK ladies time to stock up on the essentials the apocalypse is nigh. I have a couple bottles of champers, a bottle of red wine and a few M&S mini chocolate shortbread buckets.

    And loads of teabags.

  22. Giddy says:

    Now we are going to hear the the great orange one talk about his nomination. Of course, given his shy and retiring nature he will say that there are many deserving nominees…for what? Excellence in use of self-tanning products? Excellence in attaining peace through golf? The mind falters.

    I nominate Kaiser for the Nobel Peace Prize for abstaining from articles about the Kardashians! Thank you!

  23. Citresse says:

    It could be worse. Gene Simmons running for the Republicans. He and Trump are about equal in terms of equity.
    At least Trump would never say making big $$$ is more important than his own children. There are others worse than Trump. I mean, it seems some Americans believe Cruz (his R views) is much worse than Trump.
    As far as Bloomberg, as a guess, I think by March he’ll enter the race.

  24. gwen says:

    April Fools ?

  25. lucy says:

    Then I nominate that “someone” for a 5150.

  26. Pants says:

    Fascist orange baby… amazing.

  27. Tania says:

    As a Canadian I have to say… WTF are you all doing down there!???!! Trump, Cruz, Palin, Duggars, guns, Fox News, racist cops, etc. And in contrast, the lovely people on here. If I were an American, I’d not only be terrified, I’d be angry. Angry at these lunatics for sullying my country’s good name. When are the normal people going to take back your country???

  28. Sharon says:

    He probably nominated himself or had either his family or one of his flunkies nominate him
