Donald Trump asks the Nobel Committee to revoke awards to journalists

Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:08 pm

US President Donald Trump again attacks journalists, asking the Nobel Committee to demand back prices.

Early afternoon American time, Trump launched a tirade on Twitter against the press. In several reports, he is demanding that the Nobel Committee revoke awards given to journalists who have worked on Trump and Russia.

Trump consistently misspells the award as "Noble" - not "Nobel" - and it is also possible that he confuses the Nobel Prize with the Pulitzer Prize, which is a US journalist award. Journalist awards are not awarded in the name of the Nobel, so the Nobel committees in Stockholm and Oslo have no awards to revoke

Donald Trump has more than suggested that he is eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize himself ....



Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump


When will all of the “reporters” who have received Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia, only to have been proven totally wrong (and, in fact, it was the other side who committed the crimes), be turning back their cherished “Nobles” so that they can be given....

....to the REAL REPORTERS & JOURNALISTS who got it right. I can give the Committee a very comprehensive list. When will the Noble Committee DEMAND the Prizes back, especially since they were gotten under fraud? The reporters and Lamestream Media knew the truth all along....

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

....Lawsuits should be brought against all, including the Fake News Organizations, to rectify this terrible injustice. For all of the great lawyers out there, do we have any takers? When will the Noble Committee Act? Better be fast!

Some early reports from the Republican base indicate that in the first few minutes after injecting Lysol one feels incredible bursts of energy mixed in with euphoric stupidity. It looks as if the Republican Idiot in Chief injected himself today. He may not get the Nobel but he's a dead cert for the Darwin, possibly even the Lifetime Achievement version.

From Trump's Twitter @ approx. 1855 EDT 4/25

Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists? Noble is defined as, “having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.” Does sarcasm ever work?


No Donald, because you don't know what sarcasm is!

Well if Donald Trump can get Lysol to work against Corona via injections, maybe he has a point?

He probably thought it was the "Nobel Piece Prize"... and that Stormy Daniels was the "piece" that justified his award...

uhmmm, which journalist actually got a Nobel prize for work on Russia? I honestly don't know. Must be the Noble prize for Literature or Peace.

Uhmmm, why not adding Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Rabin ("won" together with Arafat) and F. W. de Klerk ("won" together with Mandela). Or is omitting those also politics?

Carter; "decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development."

Obama himself said that he felt "surprised" by the win and did not consider himself worthy of the award, so you got a point there.

Obama's prize is for the American people that elected him.

Yeah, maybe it should be revoked !

I consider that the Norwegian selection of Nobel winners is much more political compared to the Swedish part of the prize. Obama as winner was in my personal oppinion much more connected that Norway wanted a Obama visit in Oslo then practical work.

The Nobel prize for peace is political indeed, it is chosen by Norwegian members of Parlement. Although MP's wanting Obama to visit is a bit too much, there was more to it than that. I think it was more of a reaction to 8 years of Bush, so I guess whoever the next President of the USA is going to be, he will look forward to receiving the Nobel prize for peace for each and every year of his term(s). :lol:

If that is the case any replacement for Mr Trump has the Nobel prize as default ;-) Mr Trump is not very popular in Norway..

If the Nobel committee has any street smart, they'll create a one-off award for the furtherance of the war on intelligence and offer it to Trump in a tweet. He'll accept in a nanosecond.
