"The Atlantic magazine has been slammed after sharing an op-ed that the Nobel Peace Prize should be ‘ended’ after President Donald Trump was nominated in the wake of diplomatic breakthroughs between Israel and Gulf Arab countries.
The eyebrow-raising article by Graeme Wood comes just a week after the same publication reported that the president disparaged fallen and wounded American soldiers during a trip to France in 2018. The Daily Mail
‘Giving the peace prize to no one at all is a tradition the Nobel Committee should revive, perhaps on a permanent basis,’ Wood wrote in an opinion column for The Atlantic magazine’s news site." The Daily Mail
Comments on this in the Daily Mail piece:
‘This is from serial liar Jeff Goldberg endorsing a wackadoo column by deranged Atlantic scribe Graeme Wood decrying POTUS’s double Nobel nominations.
‘All shows Atlantic to be a faaaaaar left organ.’
‘They gave it to Arafat and Obama. Neither of which did anything to earn it,’ another Twitter user commented.
‘Trump helps to negotiate historical peace agreements nobody thought possible, so we need to end the Nobel Peace Prize…’ tweeted another.
Wood mentioned several other controversial figures who have won the Nobel Peace Prize, including former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
In writing the article, Wood interviewed Christian Tybring-Gjedde, an ultra-conservative member of the Norwegian Parliament who first nominated Trump for brokering a deal in which the UAE and Israel agreed to establish diplomatic ties and trade links and allow free travel between their countries for the first time."

One would expect that Goldberg who served in the IDF and was for many years an IDF reservist would be pleased that Trumpy is making straight the path ahead for Eretz Yisrael But, no, his hatred and that of this creep Graeme Wood for the Orange Demon is so great that they just couldn't keep it bottled up. The Balkan thingy obviously had no moderating effect on these guys at all.
This is all part of the general folly that has infected the American Left. I just heard Smerconish on his Saturday Newsie declare with passion that he would never, ever believe for an instant that Smiley Joe the salutin' man (lifelong civilian) would answer press questions from the scribblings on a teleprompter. Since it is obviously true that Joe does exactly that, it is necessary to account for Smerconish's toadlike behavior. Ah, I have it! He is afraid of the Left and the possibility of condemnation and … wait for it, Cancellation!
Soo, tell the pesky Norwegians, or Laplanders, or whatever they are to cancel the damned Nobel Peace Prize or they will face the threat of Cancellation!
