    I remember Bin Laden was nominated in 2001, but they gave the award to Rudy Giuliani.

    Yeah, Stalin was awarded it too. Thing is, if Trump gets it he'll thinks it's an accolade.

    In case anyone wasn't paying attention. Trump claims he was in the running for two years in a row.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_P...ns_of_the_Year

    indicates there have been several multiple recipients, including Richard Nixon, although in some cases it looks like the second time is "shared" somehow with someone else. (Though it's not clear the "sharing" is related to being a second-time recipient).

    Franklin D. Roosevelt got it three times; 1932, 1934 and 1941. Stalin is one of the ones who got it twice.

    While adjusting my DVR last night, I happened to see Conan interviewing Dan Rather, and they were touching on facets of the Trump administration.

    Mueller has subpoena'd Deutsche Bank for info regarding Trump's funds....this could get VERY juicy.

    Also a note, from what I've heard, Trump had such bad credit and bankruptcy issues in the U.S., no bank would lend money to him, so he had to go to overseas banks and probably why he...most likely...became deeply in debt with the Russians, and was too stupid to get out of it

    At least it was entertaining clusterfuck of a presidency.

    This reminds me of Governor Walker in Wisconsin... 7-8 of his closest staff were charged with various criminal charges, while he is still in charge. I find it very difficult to believe that someone surrounded by that much corruption isn't at the heart of it all. And if he isn't... he's one hell of a bad leader, inattentive, poor judge of character, ignorant, etc...

    And he's been doing the same thing; appointing crooked judges, overturning public lands, reducing labor laws, etc...
