Hassan Minhaj ‘Drags’ Donald Trump In The White House.
Woah! Donald Trump, 70, skipped the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and that’s not even the interesting part – host Hasan Minhaj minced no words when he ripped into the President for his PA rally, leaving the crowd of Republicans and journalists completely shocked.
It took serious guts to do what he did in a room filled with Republicans, but the television personality didn’t hold back. As Senior Correspondent for the The Daily Show, Hasan had probably been waiting for this moment to slam the President in front of his own people for a LONG time.
“He’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke,” he told the crowd. He even called the President “liar in chief.”
Hasan, who comes from an Indian — and Muslim — family, had been railing on Trump’s anti-immigration views since the start of the 2016 campaign. “It used to be, when I walked on a plane, I could feel the stares and suspicion. And it sucked—but at least I knew the president of the United States had my back,” explained Hasan on The Daily Show.“But now, that a**hole in seat 21B calling the flight attendant, trying to get me thrown off the plane? Now that guy is the president.”
Samantha Bee was not left out in the anti-trump talk. The comedian hosted her own Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner TBS special at the DAR Constitution Hall — just a few blocks away from the WHCD in Washington D.C.
