    This must be the most ridiculous push from certain GOP members (18) who did sent a letter to the Norwegian Nobel Price commission that Trump deserves this Nobel Price for the "peace" he did NOT create in N.Korea.

    Sorry, GOP "idiots" the reverse is the truth; first of all nothing is negotiated yet, let alone that N.Korea gives in on any demands from Trump.

    The truth is quite simple; N.Korea experienced a set back on their nuke program; an "test" at their facility was an disaster and set them back . There is absolutely no "credit" at all for Trump (he only threatened and bullied) let alone for Pence, who did not even want to talk to a N.Korean woman.

    I'm flabbergasted at the "nerve" of these GOP members; they are total "idiots"

    How did these crazies ever got elected to that job???

    Because a handful of Bernie or Busters in three states decided to thwart the will of the American people.


    I doubt Donald will get the Nobel Peace Prize, but who cares if he does? It's not like it really affects the way the American populace thinks about politicians. President Obama won it in 2009 and yet Democrats still got a "shellacking" in 2010.

    The Nobel committee doesn't have a stellar record when it comes to awarding their "peace" prize anyway. Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (Burma) received the prize in 1991 and now she is allowing her army to commit genocide against Rohingya Muslims. They also awarded it to Henry Kissinger, someone who is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

    I'm not a big fan of the Nobel Peace Prize (as you can probably see). I'm all for awarding prizes in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and economics, but they have a pretty shitty record when it comes to peace.

    Yes Jared I concur; but in this case it is even more ridiculous that 18 senators crawl up Trumps butt; sorry Trump deserves jail, not trophy's.

    Said Jared: "Because a handful of Bernie or Busters in three states decided to thwart the will of the American people."

    Could have been easily averted if people weren't so obstinately blind to candidate Trump being a formidable candidate. Think the DNC might have picked up a clue after Trump destroyed 16 Republican hopefuls.

    Oh those sycophant Republicans like Rep. Luke Messer (Indiana) just don't seem to have a moral compass. They sure have a lot of gall. It will be another joke for the late night comedians.

    Of late the Peace Prize has become somewhat of a joke. If something does come from this, something substantive, then the credit goes to the two leaders of NK and SK and most certainly not to Trump. Of course the party will scream he deserves it because of Obama and his base will scream he deserves it because they are loons.

    My own personal view of the beginning of peace in Korea is the fact that the two leaders of Korea gained a deep awareness of how dangerous that lunatic in the White House really is and ironically the result of this awareness had a positive outcome for Korea and the world.

    Specifically, trump's base must have a few primary connections in the brain that are malfunctioning. Seriously, I believe neurologically some of their nero pathways in the brain are not functioning correctly and they lack the ability to fully think logically and rationally. It a bit like people who are unable to turn left while driving, there is something wrong in their brain, and its impossible for them to make left turns. For the vast majority it is just seems crazy because its to easy and obvious, for for them its totally impossible.

    The problem is not with the entire GOP, just with his base. The majority of the GOP wants trump to suddenly die of a heart attack ASAP, so that VP Pence can take over. The majority of the GOP knows trump and his base are fucking bat shit crazy.

    There was that.

    But China was seeking resolve with NKorea as well. China may have dragged their feet throughout the years but once Moon of SKorea understandably reached out to Kim of NKorea to make peace after the Olympics took place and Kim's sister brought Moon and Kim to speak, that really got the ball rolling. Plus, Kim is in need of supplies after so many years of off and on sanctions. Trump is a desperate spoiled rich brat ..... Kim pretty much the same. Trump needs all of this foreign policy to happen asap because of so much rotten garbage about him being in the news. His inflated ego cries himself to sleep every night.

    It is possible that NK and SK leaders will get the Nobel Peace prize if there they are able to reach a long term agreement. But, there is below zero chance it will include trump.

    If there is an agreement between the two countries, trump administration will have had hand in it. trump will, of course, attempt to take full credit for the hard work that others has done.

    " I did it! It was my plan. they agreed to everything, It is the greatest deal ever made in the history of the world, everyone agrees, except the losing democrats. There is no conspiracy, there is no collusion. it's a fake witch hunt. Comey is a loser and liar. The FBI is controlled by the deep state. Most people don't know it, but I won the election and I am still winning! No president done more then me"

    He is likely to be the first president that claims in advance he deserves the Nobel Peace prizes, not only for NK, but because he has been solving the world problems since the 1970s when he, Donald Trump, was the person who arrange the meeting between Nixon and China, and then later caused the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1980. Yep, that's right, Trump made all happen, no question in his mind about any of it.

    BTW, trump was the lead astronaut picked to land on the moon, but he was replaced with Neil Armstrong when NASA decided to fake the moon landing. Trump, was forced out because he refused to lie to the american people about how the moon landing was faked. The deep stated has removed all traces of trump being an astronaut. Even removed all newspaper articles and TV coverage of trump during that time. It is as if all if trump's accomplishments as world famous NASA astronaut never happen ;)

    Oh yeah, a Nobel (Peace?) Prize, for lobbing missiles into Syria, and ordering troops to our Mexican border, and wanting a 25 foot wall on the border, and denigrating/insulting the Hispanic Latino population, and banning Muslims from our squeaky clean country, and threatening North Korea with his big nuclear button, and the list goes on. I put the question mark on peace? because there is nothing peaceful about this man's rhetoric. Yeah, he's a real winner alright.

    The "three" Chinese looking prisoners were released; they did not speak a word English. Real Americans for sure. But yeah we rip Mexican children from their mothers at the border because sweetheart Sessions thinks that is fantastic. Trump goes out of his way to get credit and even gets up at 2AM to be able to "clap" for himself. What a country!

    Trump is the poster child for exceptualism . That appeals to the evangelicals because to them exceptualism gets its authority from God. Therefore he can't make a mistake in their eyes. What may be repulsive and reprehensible to us is their "way".

    I usually watch my local news and the national news (ABC & CBS) as well as my local PBS Newshour, and he's all over the airwaves patting himself on the back for the release of those prisoners. At one point, I almost had to go to my bathroom and puke in the toilet. He makes me sick just to see him on television. I haven't been this sick since I drank a 12 pack of Bud 10 years ago. My remote television controller is about burned out as I look for channels for something worth watching.
