    Three of the four horsemen. We just need a small famine somewhere for the entire group to be here.
    No need - President Trump will soon be on this, netting him his third Nobel Peace Prize nomination, because he loves peace. Or so say his supporters, as they point to the 'peace treaties' in the Middle East between Bahrain, the UAE and Israel (no matter that they were never true combatants against each other). And, with that special relationship he has with Putin, the President is well suited to this task. Just let him get through the debate.

    Nah. He will cede this one to Putin, who is also nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. 2020 is also apparently the year where the nomination process is exposed as a complete joke.

    There is the nomination list, which has always been known as a joke because the most ridiculous ones are often leaked. But it's not to be confused with the shortlist, which is not published, rumored about, and is the actual list of contenders.

    The nomination process is a joke? The ENTIRE PRIZE IS A JOKE. Some winners:
    Henry Kissinger (you have to be kidding)
    Andrei Sakharov (father of the USSR Hydrogen Bomb)
    Mother Theresa
    The European Union (poli-speak for "Participation Trophy")
    Juan Manuel Santos (for surrendering to the FARC and not obeying the mandate of the Colombian electorate)

    A real worthy prize, and I am not even mentioning Aung San Suu Kyi, who deserves her prize being taken away.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    I'm not talking about the peace prize only, but the overall institution

    I would also fight you on Sakharov. He deeply regretted his contribution and fought for nuclear disarmament and for democracy at the cost of being in domestic exile for decades.

    Malala Yousafzai was a solid, commendable pick from recent years.
