Something a little karmic about this, don’t you think?

Donald Trump’s opponents are rejoicing after the US president lost out on the Nobel Peace Prize.
Along with Kim Jong-un, he had been a frontrunner to win the award among bookmakers. He had been nominated by Republican lawmakers who said he should win “in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula, and bring peace to the region”.
But the committee gave the prestigious award instead to campaigners who have fought against sexual violence. Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad were praised by the committee “for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict”.
Allies of the president had already used the possibility he would win to mock his opponents. Lindsay Graham said that Mr. Trump deserved the award for what he claimed were successes fighting Isis and taking on Iran.
“If Donald Trump gets the Nobel Peace Prize, liberals all over the world would jump out of buildings,” the Republican senator said before laughing.
We know that Trump desperately wanted to win this because he wants to get everything that President Obama earned, while also doing everything in his power to destroy his legacy.
However, there was absolutely nothing about this North Korea “deal” that deserves anything other than perhaps an award for being the world’s biggest sucker.
