Trump postpones his fake "Fake News Awards"

Trump delays 'Fake News Awards'

After President Donald Trump tweeted that he would be announcing the "Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards" on Monday, a few top late-night hosts made a decision to submit themselves for consideration for the year.

The "Fake News Awards", as Trump calls it, are going to "the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media".

The US President also indicated what kind of award categories the public can expect to see.

On January 2, the USA president tweeted to say he would be announcing "the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year".

Stephen Colbert also got in on the act, purchasing a billboard in Times Square to make sure he would not get snubbed. "Because nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar". It's more like that wrestling video in which Trump body-slams a guy with a CNN head-something that will excite his base, which already distrusts the press and loves the president's media-bashing. Speaking on the Late Show on Wednesday, he said: "You know folks, its awards season".

Trump uses derogatory, racist language to describe immigrants
According the sources, when Trump learned 15,000 people from Haiti had been granted USA visas, he remarked: "They all have AIDS". Trump had pushed controversial immigration policies since becoming American president in January.

Apparently late-night minds think alike.

At the bottom of the ad it reads: "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is so fake even this ad isn't real".

Well, Trump has now announced a schedule change.

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah followed suit by posting a "for your consideration" ad on Twitter that included multiple quotes about him from conservative media outlets, including "Political propaganda disguised as entertainment", "Trevor Noah is an anti-Trump hack", and "Monotonous... liberal dogma".
