Robert O’Brien’s comments upon announcement of the Israel-UAE peace deal triggered an avalanche of TDS.
Donald Trump announced an Israel-UAE peace deal today, an historic accompishment by any measure.
Of course, the haters were gonna hate, but the effort also was widely praised.
National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien triggered TDS world when he suggested that Trump deserved a Nobel Peace Prize:
“It wouldn’t surprise me if the President is eventually nominated for a Nobel Prize,” the president’s top national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, told reporters Thursday. “Today’s work is an example of why he would be rightly considered and should be a front-runner for the Nobel Peace Prize.”

Trump has long complained that he would deserve the Peace Prize if it were handed out fairly.
Recall Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize just for existing.
The reaction to Obrien’s statement was predictable.
Donald Trump has let 165,000 Americans die, and my twitter feed is filled with Washington reporters credulously repeating that he should win the Nobel prize.

Sorry Donald Trump, they don't give the Nobel Peace Prize to people who have committed 160,000 counts of felony negligent homicide.

What if they gave @realDonaldTrump a Nobel Peace Prize to tempt him to leave the country… where he could be apprehended by Interpol and sent to The Hague to answer for his crimes against humanity?https://t.co/Qk63tMwdo6
