Trump postpones his 'fake news' awards

08 January 2018

On Thursday The Late Show's Stephen Colbert released a spoof ad asking the President to consider his show in all categories, including "Least Breitbarty", "Fakest Dishonesty", "Dishonestest Corruption", and for "The Eric Trump Memorial Award for Disappointment".

He added: "Subjects will cover Dishonesty and Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media".

On 3 January Mr Trump said he would be announcing "THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR" on Monday 8 January at 5.00pm. "The interest in and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated".

"CNN "MISTAKENLY" reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J Trump Jr had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks", is the second story on the list.

"I get it. There's one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you're being a factotum in order to please him, OK", Tapper said on "State of the Union", appearing to reference the president.

Late night hosts took advantage of Trump's latest invention to poke fun at the president - and put themselves up for the honor, of course.

Well, Trump has now announced a schedule change. "So that was Donald Trump's day on Twitter".

U.S. President Donald Trump returns to the White House from Camp David, in Washington, U.S., January 7, 2018. "This is a real dilemma for the president because, on one hand, he loves awards and trophies. Stay tuned!" the president tweeted.
