    [i]”President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we need is only peace”[/i] President Moon told a meeting of senior secretaries according to a presidential Blue House official who briefed media.

    I would guess that Mr cartoon man is also not a huge fan of the South Korean president.

    Maybe Trump should follow in the footsteps of Obama and start droning some wedding receptions and hospitals to secure the award.

    Dark comedy singer/mathematician Tom Lehrer of ‘Poisoning pigeons in the park’ notoriety once famously said, after Henry Kissinger got the Nobel Peace Prize, that this had made political satire obsolete.

    Nearly 50 years later, perhaps he would add (he is still alive) that politics has now made satire a serious business in what has become a show that the audience can’t leave. The once funny jokes are now on them, and no one’s laughing except perhaps the fat joker who now plays April Fool all year.
