If you check out Twitter right now, you might see that both Nobel and Noble are trending right now, and President Donald Trump has something to do with it.
During a twitter rant on Sunday, April 26, the 45th President of the United States tweeted in anger about the media and reporters, and noted that many journalists had received “Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia,” which referred to allegations that his campaign was colluded by the Russian government.
He went on to write that, “Lawsuits should be brought against all, including the Fake News Organizations, to rectify this terrible injustice. For all of the great lawyers out there, do we have any takers? When will the Noble Committee Act? Better be fast!”
While the tweet has since been deleted, it was screenshot by many, who went on to roast Trump about his comments.
More also suggested he was probably confused on what the Nobel prize was, switching it with the Pulitzer Prize, which awards journalists for their written words.
The Nobel Prize is given to honorees in recognition of academic, cultural, or scientific advances.
See his tweets below:
I’m assuming the president means Pulitzer Prize and not the Nobel Prize…not to mention the misspelling.
Do any Trump supporters want to defend errors like this? I just know if Biden did the same thing they’d be attacking him for it, and they’d be right to! pic.twitter.com/OvrxsavRTe
