Give Trump the Nobel Prize for Economics
townhall.com ^ | Sep 11, 2018 | Stephen Moore

This past week I asked a friend at the White House about how the president was holding up against the onslaught of media attacks. "They didn't even deliver a glancing blow," was the response. It wasn't for a lack of trying.

Has any president in modern times been the target of such a Blitzkrieg of orchestrated assaults -- from John McCain's funeral turned anti-Trump scrum to Bob Woodward's discredited new book trashing the president to the media infatuation with the anonymous New York Times op-ed by a disgruntled federal employee who hates President Trump.

Here we go again. Trump is (for the umpteenth time) characterized as dangerous, deranged, delusional, infantile, racist and amoral. But Trump is like Muhammad Ali playing rope-a-dope while George Foreman (the media) is flailing away and punching himself out. The only people who pay attention to the anti-Trump screeds are already frothing at the mouth with Trump hatred. What is the point?

..snip..

And what is the result of all this "chaos" and "mayhem" in the White House that the media is in such a frenzy about? Well, as we learned last week, we now have the lowest number of American workers on unemployment insurance since Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, the biggest manufacturing boom in 14 years, the lowest black unemployment rate ever recorded, and an economy that is growing at 4.4 percent this quarter, on top of 4.2 percent growth last quarter.

The media, ironically, is helping Trump overseas. The idiots in China think he must be some kind of Superman, to remain in power when everybody everywhere hates him.

The Nobel committee has denigrated the award by awarding it to obama...for....NOTHING (other than being black).

If winning it implies trying to be “equal” to obama, I’d tell them to shove it.

If either the Economics prize or the Peace prize goes to anyone else, the Nobel will officially be a complete joke.

The man has pulled off what ALL the experts declared to be impossible - both on the economic front, and on the peacemaking front.

As there’s no one else who has done the impossible, there’s no reasonable basis for awarding either prize to anyone else.

Yes!
I have this endless “argument” with a friend of mine.

“But... you don’t know!” he said, “the media attacks Trump 24/7, even on the game shows!”

“It doesn’t matter,” I reply.

“Why?”

“Because the only people watching that crap already hate Trump.”

When the only people getting the propaganda are people who agree with it to begin with ... as you say, what’s the point? But, like mice lost in a maze, the media just continue to churn it out on a daily basis because they simply don’t know what else to do.

They should retract the peace prizes from Obama, Algor, and Arafat, and give them all to Trump.
