Trump said the National Enquirer should win a Pulitzer

"Trump also said that the National Enquirer, which published the bizarre and totally unsubstantiated story about Rafael Cruz and Oswald, should win a Pulitzer Prize."

That will happen right about the same time Trump wins the Nobel Peace Prize.


  1. He didn't say The National Enquirer should win a Pulitzer Prize for an expose on Cruz' father, he quoted several stories on different issues that the magazine had run and said He "didn't know why they hadn't won a Pulitzer. They should have won a Pulitzer." And as for the Nobel Peace Prize being won by someone unqualified for it, as memory serves, Obama was given the prize for, apparently getting elected US President. He hadn't done anything else when he was awarded the prize.

  2. Actually, he did:

    “This was a magazine that, in many respects, is respected. They got OJ [Simpson], they got [John] Edwards, THEY GOT THIS. If that was The New York Times, they would have gotten Pulitzers for their reporting."

    Trump mentions three stories that merited the Pulitzer. "THIS" refers to the Cruz story.

    "Gent": I'd offer you a tip. Never believe the talking points from either Fox News or the Trump campaign. I don't believe I've seen a single case yet - not one - when they have ever been right. They serve the same function as defense lawyers with a guilty client who won't plea out. They have to say something, so they just make up some crap that the masses might believe because they don't bother to check the facts.

    As for Obama winning the Peace Prize, there's no question that he didn't deserve it, but that has nothing to do with why Trump can never win. The prize is awarded to people with a certain internationalist point of view. Trump is not their kind of guy, which is the reason he'd never win the prize, even in the unlikely event that he did something to deserve it.
