Some members of the mainstream media took a brief hiatus from their non-stop bashing of President Trump Friday, with some going so far as to say the Commander-in-Chief deserves the Nobel Prize over his handling of North Korea’s nuclear program.
Sen. Lindsey Graham -a vocal critic of President Trump- was the first to suggest the award, saying “It’s the biggest change since the end of the hostilities.”
“We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize,” he added.
A prominent reporter for NBC News also mentioned the prize, writing “It is a dangerous world, dominated by outsized personalities who act aggressively on behalf of their nations, including not hesitating to threaten — and even engage in — war. Fortunately, one is President Donald Trump.
“History — and in particular, the American voter — has a way of calling forth the right person to lead at the right time,” said NBC’s Keith Koffler. “Americans can feel assured that they have chosen the right man for the moment.”
“Trump’s big, bad personality is just right for this dangerous world,” he added.
Trump, Xi, Moon and Kim together get my vote for the Nobel Peace Prize.

PEACE IN KOREA: North and South Korea INSTALL HISTORIC Hotline Between Leaders
North and South Korea have opened a historic hotline directly linking the two leaders ahead of next week’s high-stakes summit; potentially clearing a path towards the official end of the 68-year long Korean War.
According to Fox News, the hotline is a direct link between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un; a major step towards de-escalating tensions in the region following North Korea’s multiple nuclear and missile tests.
“The historic direct telephone line between the leaders of the South and North was connected a short while ago,” confirmed South Korean officials.
“The test call went on for 4 minutes and 19 seconds starting at 3:41 p.m. with (officials from) both sides speaking to each other … The connection was smooth and the voice quality was very good. It was like calling next door,” he said.
Military experts say the hotline is reminiscent of the private links between Moscow and Washington during the Cold War, when each leader had a direct method of contacting each other in the event of a potential nuclear strike.
