Marsha Blackburn is the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate from Tennessee. Kevin Cramer is the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate from North Dakota. These two, along with several other Republican politicians, have some questionable judgement.
They think a man who has pulled out of multiple nuclear arms treaties, a man who has inspired multiple acts of domestic terrorism, a man who gave a speech to the United Nations that was filled with rhetoric borrowed from Adolf Hitler, a man who has repeatedly called the free press the “enemy of the people”, a man who has intentionally separated children of asylum seekers from their parents, a man who has stoked bigotry against immigrants and Muslims and LGBTQ Americans, a man who has spoken out against NATO, a man who has waged a trade war against long-time allies, a man who has proudly referred to himself as a “nationalist”, a man who has bragged about selling arms to Saudi Arabia while they create a humanitarian disaster in Yemen and murder a Washington Post columnist in Turkey, a man who allowed thousands of U.S citizens to die because he seemed to be unaware that Puerto Rico was not a foreign country, a man who has called for the imprisonment of his political opponents, a man who is pushing for a “Space Force”, a man who has cut the number of refugees admitted to the United States to a historic low, a man who has made multiple attempts to ban travel to America by Muslims, a man who provided rhetorical defense for neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, a man who defended Vladimir Putin’s human rights abuses, a man who defended Kim Jong-un’s human rights abuses, a man who wanted to pay down the United States’ debt by causing massive hyperinflation, a man who hired a campaign manager who helped innocent people be killed in Ukraine, a man who pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement, a man who suggested to Spain that they build a wall across the Sahara desert, a man who wants to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, a man who admitted he did not know of the importance of the Middle East peace process…..is worthy of being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
A group of President Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters in the House of Representatives have sent a letter to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, formally nominating the President for a Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination was spearheaded by Indiana’s Rep. Luke Messer, who is locked in a fierce GOP primary battle in the Hoosier State for a Senate seat.
Joining Messer in the letter are conservative members like Freedom Caucus leader Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Rep. Steve King of Iowa. Six of the signatories are seeking higher office, including Rep. Marsha Blackburn, the presumptive Republican nominee for Senate in Tennessee; Rep. Diane Black, who is running for governor in Tennessee; Rep. Evan Jenkins, who is part of a three-way primary for Senate in West Virginia; Rep. Jim Renacci, who’s running for governor of Ohio; and Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is attempting to unseat Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota.
