It looks like we’ll have to wait until learning who wins President Trump’s “Fake News Awards,” a dubious kudo cooked up to honour (or, as the case may be, dishonour), the most dishonest news story of the year, according to the Commander in Chief.
In a tweet issued on Sunday, Trump revealed that he’s postponing the revelation of the “losers” — which was to have been announced on Monday, Jan. 8 — until Wednesday, Jan. 17, with awards going to “the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media.”
The reason for the delay, according to the president, is because “interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated.”
This is certainly the case when it comes to “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show”, both of whom, with tongues planted firmly in cheek, are lobbying Trump to be among the “losers.”
Colbert addressed Trump’s postponed event, again pitching why he deserves to win an award.
