So this is no joke.
Really, it’s not April Fool’s Day.
Presidential contender Donald J. Trump was just nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
While the nomination does not guarantee a win . . . much like the GOP nomination . . . the letter recommending Trump stated the reasons as, “his vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS, nuclear Iran and Communist China.”
It’s unclear if Dick Cheney wrote the nomination letter.
Previous nominees have been good ‘ol Vlad Putin, Joseph “Uncle Joe” Stalin and Paul “Bono” Hewson.
The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced in early October, just in time for a positive “October Surprise” for Trump.
Pope Francis was also nominated for a 2016 award. Barack Obama won the award in 2009, a day after he attempted to blow up the moon by crashing a probe into it.
The Nobel panel that awards the peace price recognition later viewed Obama’s award as a “mistake.”
