Speaker Pelosi Calls Middle East Peace Deals A "Distraction"

              When President Trump was elected, many “experts” claimed the Middle East would become even less stable. When he recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the U.S. embassy there, experts and observers warned that the region would literally blow up.

              Instead, he fostered historic peace agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), and, shortly thereafter, between Israel and Bahrain, and has since been twice-nominated for a Nobel peace Prize. The historically tense and violent region today stands more peaceful and stable than perhaps at any time in memory.

             And this, apparently, does not sit well with Democrats and never-Trumpers. The Atlantic’s Graeme Wood was so offended by the Nobel nomination that he called for the abolishment of the Nobel Prize. Wood said that Trump’s nomination struck him as “preposterous.” He wrote: Trolls are a Scandinavian invention, straight from the frigid sagas of Norse mythology, but Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a Norwegian parliamentarian, swears that he is not one. Observers of his antics this week could be forgiven for thinking otherwise. On Wednesday, he announced that he had nominated Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.”

            Snarky, childish, and idiotic.

            CNN’s Wolf Blitzer recently asked the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, “How much credit do you give the President of the United States for these peace agreements?” She responded, “So, good for him for having a distraction on a day when the numbers of people who are affected and the numbers of people who are dying from this virus only increases.”

            “Good for him for having a distraction?!” A “distraction?!”

            No, Nancy Nonsense, a distraction is when you get caught flouting your own social distancing rules-- or when you publicly rip up a copy of the president’s State of the Union speech. Peace deals ushering in full normalization of diplomatic relations between Israel and multiple Arab nations are significant accomplishments

            But you wouldn’t know anything about that.
