Nobel prize: Trump nominated—Turnbull not!

Nobel Peace prize: Trump nominated—Turnbull not!

To the shade of Green grapes.

President Trump has been nominated by two Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize following his summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, according to a report Wednesday.

If it comes to be that President Trump is to be the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize will he accept it? After all, his nemesis Barack Obama got one for being… well… for doing nothing, thus making a farce of the Nobel selection committee. Methinks Trump will derive more pleasure in refusing the dubious honour. Turnbull will be rather miffed that he won’t be able to his hands on the prize—after all, they are good mates and businessmen, as the waffler reminded Trump during “the worst phone call in his life” said Trump.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, members of the Progress Party, said Trump has “taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea , ” Norwegian news agency NTB said, the Associated Press reported.

Last month, 18 Republican lawmakers sent a letter to the Nobel Committee to pitch Trump for the Peace Prize because of his efforts to disarm North Korea.

Asked afterward if he deserved the honor, Trump said: “Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it.”

The process of considering candidates and awarding the Nobel Peace Prize is done in Norway, the AP reported.

Nominations must be sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee before Feb. 1.

Trump and Kim signed an agreement following their Tuesday summit in Singapore that calls for the US and North Korea to work toward building a lasting peace and Pyongyang to commit to the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula.

    I understand there is an acute egg shortage due to the MSM taking all eggs out of the market, as apparently, those eggs were located on MSM faces this morning.

      There is an acute egg shortage. Exported Dutch eggs have been removed from shelves due to pesticide contamination.

      And that’s no eggsaggeration.

    Hang on, I’m confused, isn’t this Trump bloke the most evil warmongering ba5t4rd since (or before) Hitler who was supposed to be plunging the world into a war that would blah, blah, blah…….

      Apparently.

    Repeating my earlier post .. Never happen, the paparazzi, the TV media, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Chancellors, Senators and Congressmen have hatred of mammoth proportions toward Donald J Trump. Because they know he is right and too spineless to admit it.

      I share some of your suspicions, Muphin, but there is a silver lining. If Trump is knocked back, it shows up the worthlessness of the Nobel.

        It’s been worthless for years Notmy and utterly discredited in my view when it was awarded to Obongo after – what was it? – less than a fortnight in the White House. Joe Blogs said yesterday Obongo got it just for being (half) black. It’s London to a brick that if Trump IS nominated he’ll say “no thanks, just doing my job”.

    I doubt Trumpy would accept unless Kim got the nod too!

    • Joe Blogs 14/06/2018, 10:48 am

      A good move would be for DJT to say that he can’t accept it because LRM’s role was more significant than his own.

    The Nobel is a junket prize, I doubt very much if President Trump would bring himself down to the level of Obama.
    Trump deserves a very big prize and the Nobel has lost any shine it ever had.

      Noballs Prize?

    It’s the Nobelter Prize. Awarded to dopes, dunces and drongos of the left wing kind by a very socialist band of dopes, dunces and drongos. Used to mean something at one time.

    Both Shorten and Malfunctions rudeness towards Mr President, stems from the fact that they both though he would never make President. They were banking on the Russian conspiracy. We are now aware that the grub Downer was involved right up to his scrawny neck in dishing dirt on Mr Trump. Most likely on behalf of the Clinton Crime family.How stupid were they. Mr President does not forget or forgive his enemies. He screws them.How sad that we are now going to do deals with Germany. At what cost I ask. I also believe Mr President will most likely tell them to stick their Peace Prize right where the sun don’t shine.

      ‘Scrawny neck’ Judy? Chubby neck more like. Our Alex is never one to walk past a buffet, especially if someone else is paying.

    We are talking about the Nobel Peace Prize. Nobel Prizes for science etc are still very worthwhile.
    A few times lately I have bought the Sydney Morning Herald and was starting to think that being wildly left wing might be the reason very few people buy their paper and they had changed their attitude somewhat. Yesterday I was stuck in town for hours and again bought a SMH to fill in time but after reading the page of letters to the editor that were ALL extremely anti Trump I have revised my opinion of their paper.
