Note to Representative McKinley: President Trump is upset that he hasn't received the Nobel Peace Prize
Maybe you should nominate him again

As you are probably aware, the president did not get the prize. Apparently, Trump is still upset that he didn't win but Obama did. At this morning's press conference, he claims that . . .
This morning, President Trump declared a national emergency. Of course, Trump is the obvious hypocrite:
