Trump Lashes Out After World Mocks His Misspelled ‘Noble Prize’ Tweet. Claims It Was ‘Sarcasm’




President Trump attempted to clean up a series of earlier tweets lashing out at reporters who had received Nobel Prizes — misspelled as “Noble” in the tweets — for their efforts to report on the special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia should return the prizes.

“When will all of the ‘reporters’ who have received Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia, only to have been proven totally wrong (and, in fact, it was the other side who committed the crimes), be turning back their cherished ‘Nobles’ so that they can be given to the REAL REPORTERS & JOURNALISTS who got it right,” the president tweeted.

“When will the Noble Committee Act? Better be fast!” he added, repeating his misspelling of the Nobel Prize Committee.



The tweets were widely mocked on Twitter over the president’s repeated misspelling of “Nobel” and the fact that there is no Nobel Prize for journalism.

Two news organizations did receive Pulitzer Prizes — the highest award in journalism — in 2019 for Trump-related stories, but neither of those stories focused on the Russia investigation.

“Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists?” Trump tweeted. “Noble is defined as, ‘having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.’ Does sarcasm ever work?”

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu wasn’t buying Trump’s explanation, tweeting: “your Nobel / Noble tweets were not sarcastic. If they were, you wouldn’t have deleted them. Stop lying to us.”




He added: “Can you please focus? Over 55,000 Americans have already died of #COVID19 under your watch. We need much more testing & PPE.”
