If it happened, it would constitute one of the truly astounding developments of what has been a truly astounding, unpredictable, rollercoaster or an era of American history: Donald Trump, Nobel Peace Prize winner.
TMZ reports, “Lindsey Graham says President Trump might not be deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize just yet, but if he wins it anyway … liberals are going to lose it. … Graham says [Trump has] done a lot to deserve it by fighting ISIS and taking on Iran, but needs a little more help from North Korea.”
“As for the libs, Sen. Graham thinks if 45 manages to nab the Nobel, they’ll be so distraught they’ll head for the nearest window … and take the leap.”
“Lindsey also throws some shade at past Peace Prize winner Barack Obama …”
Graham’s conduct, indeed, reveals lots about conservatives, liberals and honorable conduct.
Honest observers and analysts — even those who are not the biggest Trump fans — ought to be willing to grant our current President credit where it is his due. That would be called intellectual consistency. (For the record and conversely, that would also include a willingness to say it when one takes issue with DT on a particular matter.)
Curiously, the same approach could be suggested — and it seems is unfolding — towards Senator Graham himself.
