Asahi Shimbun, one of Japan's largest national newspapers, cited multiple government sources as saying the U.S. "informally" asked Japan to nominate Trump.

I picture trump taking Abe aside and saying, "Ya know, I'd hate to see anything bad happen to Japan, maybe, if I was nominated for a Nobel, I might be able to pay more attention to your defense."

You'd think it might occur to Trump and the other a-holes in repug politics that government by tweet, with the chief practitioner making an utter fool of himself on a daily basis, might not be constructive, in the long run. You'd think.

Getting Abe to nominate was the easy part. Given it's the Norwegians who will be selecting the actual winner, his chances of proving himself a loser again are much more likely.

They might as well give it to him, it's not worth much anymore.

Worth it or not, Obama has one, and it drives Trump nuts.

What evidence do you have that anyone in either Repub or DNC leadership really cares for the long term?

^ A remarbably ill-formed opinion, considering ( for one example ) recent promulgation of the Green New Deal by emerging Democratic leadership.

Do keep up.

LOL! "Emerging Democratic leadership" in the House is not nearly the same as 'the DNC'. Especially when Pelosi et al are so quick to undermine the eager beavers.

Getting the Norwegians to stop laughing, that is the hard part!
