Erm … what?

LOU DOBBS: “Good evening, everybody. President Trump today had a great day — a day that any president could only dream of. President Trump started off the day with a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. That nomination comes weeks after President Trump brokered an historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. It’s an achievement that has eluded every president, every administration since the founding of Israel in 1948. And a member of Norway’s parliament submitted the nomination and praised President Trump for his efforts to resolve conflicts worldwide.”

Uh huh.

A little context: The guy who nominated Trump, far right-wing Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde, last nominated Trump for the award in 2018 in recognition of Trump’s North Korea vaporware. And so far this year, 318 people or organizations have been nominated for the award. A nomination is meaningless. It’s like writing in Heinrich Himmler on your MLB All-Star fan ballot. It would be more impressive if Tybring-Gjedde had named a lutefisk sandwich after him at a popular Oslo deli.

So that part of Dobbs’ daily Trump-fluffery is clearly B.S.

As for “President Trump today had a great day — a day that any president could only dream of”? 

Uh … no.

This might sound like a silly question, but does Lou Dobbs watch the news? Or does he get all his information from White House press releases?
