Orange of the White House got into one of his shit storms on Twitter yesterday and raved that Noble Journalism Prize recipients should return their journalism prizes to the Noble Committee. Upon being told by one of his caretakers that there was no such thing as a Noble Prize he deleted the tweet but not fast enough. The Internet works much faster than Trump and his latest stupidity was found out.
A learned person would know that there is the Nobel Prize and it has nothing to do with journalism. The journalism prize is the Pulitzer Prize. There are a variety of Nobel Prizes in various areas of science and literature and a Pulitzer Prize for Journalism. Trump will never possess either to hang on his wall next to that Purple Heart he will never have.
He then went on to explain and try covering his ass by claiming he was merely being sarcastic. The problem with trying to cover one’s ass by claiming sarcasm is that to be genuinely sarcastic one has to understand the subject matter they are being sarcastic about. If you’re trying to create some sort of sarcastic or satirical joke you have to know the subject or otherwise you come off looking like a stumbling dunce. It’s the difference between having those present see you as a funny person or an ignorant fool.
And finally, there is no such thing as a Noble Prize but if there were Trump would never receive one of those either. It requires being noble and to date, he has never displayed such a trait. It’s not even one of those biggie words he knows so many of.
Oh, and that photo at the top of the page; that’s President Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Another something missing from Trump’s wall.
