President Trump is very likely the most polarizing political figure in modern American history, but that was completely by design.
The nation itself had grown jaded at the idea of a political ruling class stuffing their pockets with both taxpayer dollars and lobbyist slush fund money, choosing to elect a man who boldly claimed that he was waltz into Washington to drain the swamp.
This caused much of The Beltway to recoil, and attempt to turn their constituents against him. Soon, the “resistance” was off and running and every waking moment of President Trump’s existence was soon cause for confrontation.
So, naturally, when Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this week, Twitter users lost their minds.
U.S. President Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in honor of his work in normalizing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Fox News reported Wednesday.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, submitted the nomination. He praised Trump for his efforts at striving for peace not just in the Middle East but globally as well.
The backlash was almost immediate.
Call me old-fashioned, but maybe if you try to incite a Civil War in your own country you shouldn't get the Nobel Peace Prize.

The same Norwegian lawmaker also nominated Trump in 2018 for the Nobel Peace Prize. Also a reminder Adolf Hitler was nominated too. Differences? O God #TrumpIsARapist #TrumpIsNotLikeYou pic.twitter.com/1aiSOuzZh2

It seems as though the nomination itself has kicked off a new wave of Trump Derangement Syndrome – a barely fictional affliction that has waxed and waned innumerable times over the course of the last four years.
