Trump Agonistes

While appearing at the UN, Trump speculated on why he had not been awarded a Nobel Prize.

“I would get a Nobel prize for a lot of things, if they give it out fairly, which they don’t,” Trump said.

And what prompted him to say this?  You know; you just think you don't.

“They gave one to Obama immediately upon his ascent to the presidency and he had no idea why he got it.”

True; but we all know why you won't get one.  Hint:  it doesn't come with the Presidency.

Interestingly, in light of recent reports about cleaning up Trump's mangling of the language, the correct quote seems to be this:

Which is definitely a horse of a different color.  Trump starts the sentence in one direction, then backs the truck over it in the end, all to state, simultaneously, how great he is, and what a victim of the world he is.
