"I didn't realize there is a Nobel Prize for Incompetence," one wit on Twitter hit back.

The Trump campaign was quick to praise President Donald Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize this week.

The captions of the ads also falsely proclaimed Trump had “achieved PEACE in the MIDDLE EAST!”

All of the ads are now listed as “inactive.”
