Trump Should Go for the Noble Peace Prize

Trump Should Go for the Noble Peace Prize September 15, 2020

President Donald Trump sometimes says he should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Earlier this year, he tweeted that and spelled the word “Nobel” as “Noble.” He caught flack on Twitter for this misspelling. He then responded with one of his signature moves by claiming he was being sarcastic with the word “Noble.” Would someone explain to me how that can be construed as being sarcastic?

It seems the Trump Campaign can’t spell any better than the boss. Maybe both the campaign and the boss have a systemic misspelling problem with the same words. Or is the boss crafting those ads?

In at least six political ads that appeared today on Facebook and Instagram, they began, “President Trump achieved PEACE in the MIDDLE EAST! Did you hear the news that he has been nominated for the NOBLE PEACE PRIZE for his hard work?”

As soon as the campaign took flack over this same misspelling Trump made months earlier, they corrected it and soon removed the ads altogether.

Heh, I like NOBLE in the ad better. The dictionary provides two different definitions for the word “noble.” One is about royalty and the other is about character, which latter is the way people usually use the word “noble.” The dictionary says of this meaning, “having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.” That is the prize Mr. Fine Quality Person of High Moral Principles Trump should go for.
