Donald Trump, a man whose sexist, racist and generally bonkers remarks are enough to make one simultaneously roll one’s eyes and throw up in one’s mouth, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. And although his chances of winning are slim to nil and over 200 folks are nominated annually, the nomination alone is enough to make me simultaneously roll my eyes and throw up in my mouth.
Kristian Berg Harpviken, head of the Peace Research Institute in Oslo, confirmed Trump’s nomination. And though she does not reveal which U.S. individual eligible to submit nominations threw the presidential hopeful’s name into the mix, she does reveal that his “vigorous peace through strength ideology” was cited as a reason.
Is this real life?
