(SOURCE)– People joked on Twitter after Trump was nominated (twice) for a Nobel Peace Prize that the award would now have to be canceled. But they were only half-joking then, and now it’s an actual reality.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, they canceled Susan B. Anthony after Trump pardoned and praised her, so in a way, it was probably inevitable. But in another way, it’s just INCREDIBLE how deranged they have become.
It started with bitter burns on Nobels at first.
Nobel Peace Prize is a sham like Oscars and Miss Universe.

I hate to be the one pointing this out, but Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin were also nominated for the Nobel Peace prize.

Time to cancel the Nobel Prize, I guess… https://t.co/0iUmxlSRXO

Tbh, it’s what I expect from them. He is joining the ranks of Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini who were all nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize too.

Satire died when Kissinger got the Nobel Prize. Now we have farce.

You know who else was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?
Trump's in great company, don't you think?

And there was media silencing/sabotage.
Associated Press wastes little time trying to delegitimize Donald Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize nomination https://t.co/neEnKv83Mq

I can’t find the Nobel Prize nomination news on CNN’s home page.

But it all moved on to full blown woke rage.
"The record of achievement of the peace laureates is so spotty, and the rationales for their awards so eclectic, that the committee should take a long break to consider whether peace is a category coherent enough to be worth recognizing," @gcaw writes: https://t.co/kMGZGzTaki
