Donald Trump is known for a lot of things–being a real estate magnate; putting his name on everything from mattresses to Mexican-made ties; and saying the most outlandish ish while still being a top contender for the Republican presidential nomination–but encouraging peace ain’t one of them. Still, somebody thought it was fitting to add the Donald’s name to the list of nominees for the Nobel Peace Price…right next to Pope Francis.

The Independent reports:

Trump’s reported nomination comes after he made a number of inflammatory and divisive comments in the run-up to the caucus. The billionaire business magnate “endeared himself to millions by proposing Muslims be banned from entering the US and has been condemned for his comments about immigration and Mexican migrants, with one of his most infamous pledges being to build a “big beautiful wall” between the US and Mexico.

While it’s doubtful Trump has a shot at winning the prestigious award, the fact that he was nominated because his hate speech pretty much indicates we’re doomed.

    They let random schmucks nominate idiots for Nobel Prizes now? Really?

  • It is a disgrace that Donald Trump is nominated a Nobel Peace Prize. His words of promoting ad hominem attacks, racism, and sexism are deplorable. He has been investigated by the government for discriminatory practices against black families. He wants no Muslims to come into America, which violates national and international law. His rhetoric is anti-human rights. For a long time, social activists defended the rights of black people, women, immigrants, and refugees. This defense of human, egalitarian principles is what we will continue to fight for. We believe in the dignity of humanity while the far right believes that some people should have total human rights (which is wrong). We abhor bigotry and intolerance while the far right relishes in advancing bigotry constantly. Therefore, the Dream lives in us. That Dream is that we would exist in a society where the general welfare is made real for all people. The views and agenda of Donald Trump not only encompass hate and anti-intellectualism, but it shows the war mongering essence of GOP extremists which is the antithesis of the principles of social justice, love, and peace. We want peace and justice to flourish in this world.

    trump says ‘we’re’ going to take ‘our’ country back — to make america great – again; and, besides all that, obama was awarded the nobel peace prize.

  • You’d think Bernie Sanders would get that!
