For whatever unknown, God-awful reason, among all the other disaster, hellish monstrosities that have been bestowed upon us this year of two thousand twenty, Donald J. Trump — the guy who betrayed the Kurds, ignored bounties put on the heads of American soldiers, called dead troops “suckers and losers,” and allowed more than 200,000 Americans to die from a deadly pandemic on his watch — was nominated for a Nobel (Noble. HA!) Peace Prize.
Even all of those horrible, awful, putrid, and most definitely not peaceful things aside, the guy pretty well knocked himself out of the running based solely on his behavior surrounding the honorable prize.
Frankly, the dude acted like a straight-up jerk (as is usual for him) and all but demanded that he receive the honor for all the heckin’ great things he thinks he’s done.
Now, we all knew that Trump’s chances at actually having such an honor bestowed upon him were about the same as a snowball’s chance in Hell. However, these are strange times we’re living in, guys, and The Orange Mussolini apparently wasn’t the only one to believe that he deserves it bigly.
So, when the news broke today that Donald Trump did not, in fact, have the winning ticket, the deranged crowd who still supports the racist because he lets them racist found themselves big mad.
Today, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced that the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Programme (WFP) “for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.”

A lot of people took a big sigh of relief, knowing that it wasn’t the Cheeto-in-Chief:
Thank goodness it wasn’t trump!

There were some suggestions for this award which were quite concerning. Glad it has gone to a deserving organisation.

However, the MAGA crowd couldn’t let this pass by without putting in their collection 1 1/2 cents:
The amount of hate here against @realDonaldTrump is appalling. You can’t deny the Peace Deals and the nominations that he deserved. Who knows, after he comes back to the White House he’ll sign more Peace Deals and win next year. Would certainly be better than bomber Obama! 🙏🏾✌🏾😷
