After refusing to hold any more coronavirus press briefings after embarrassing himself repeatedly, President Donald Trump lashed out all day on Twitter, only to humiliatingly demand that all journalists return their “Noble” Prizes.
Trump’s disastrous suggestion that people take disinfectants internally to treat the virus backfired and once again made him a laughingstock.
So, for the second straight day, Trump decided not to hold a press briefing and spent his wife’s birthday bitching and moaning on Twitter.
In a failure of epic proportions, Trump targeted Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists by demanding they return their “Noble” Prizes.
Seriously, he couldn’t even spell “Nobel” correctly and he made the spelling error multiple times.
“When will all of the “reporters” who have received Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia, only to have been proven totally wrong (and, in fact, it was the other side who committed the crimes), be turning back their cherished “Nobles” so that they can be given to the REAL REPORTERS & JOURNALISTS who got it right,” Trump wrote. “I can give the Committee a very comprehensive list. When will the Noble Committee DEMAND the Prizes back, especially since they were gotten under fraud? The reporters and Lamestream Media knew the truth all along. Lawsuits should be brought against all, including the Fake News Organizations, to rectify this terrible injustice. For all of the great lawyers out there, do we have any takers? When will the Noble Committee Act? Better be fast!”
Of course, Trump deleted the tweets several hours later. But there are screenshots.

He would then claim that the tweets were mere sarcasm and pretending that “Noble” Prizes are a real thing.
Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists? Noble is defined as, “having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.” Does sarcasm ever work?

Again, Trump was talking about Pulitzer Prizes but confused them with Nobel Prizes, and he couldn’t spell Nobel correctly.
It’s really that simple. But only Trump would insist that “Noble” Prizes are real and that he was just being sarcastic.
Well, they aren’t real, and he certainly wasn’t being sarcastic. And the Democrats did not collude with Russia so Trump can stop repeating that debunked claim.
And since Trump has now humiliated himself on Twitter again, can he stop tweeting, too?
