Hasan Minhaj Doesn’t Hold Back on Trump Administration at Correspondents’ Dinner

Hosting the White House correspondents’ dinner has proven to be a pretty big deal in the careers of many comedians.  It can be argue had Stephen Colbert failed when he did his that he wouldn’t be the host of the Late Show today.   So when Hasan Minhaj was selected to do the 2017 White House Correspondents’ dinner, the pressure was on.  How did he handle said pressure?  By going right after Trump and his administration.

Despite President Trump’s absence, White House Correspondents’ Dinner headliner, Hasan Minhaj, didn’t lay off the “liar-in-chief.” The correspondent for The Daily Show had the audience rolling with his wisecracks about the commander-in-chief. Here’s one of his best jokes of the night:

“I would say it was an honor to be here, but that would be an alternative fact. It is not. No one wanted to do this, so of course it lands in the hands of an immigrant. It’s how it always goes down. No one wanted this gig – no one. Don Rickles died just so you wouldn’t ask him to do this gig, alright. R.I.P. to Don Rickles, the only Donald with skin thick enough to take a joke like that. R.I.P. to the legend.”

Check out the whole thing below.  This could be a career changer for Minhaj.
