President Donald Trump may have opted to hold a rally in Pennsylvania instead of attending the White House Correspondents' Dinner, a tradition that the president hasn't missed since Ronald Reagan couldn't attend while recovering from an assassination attempt in 1981, but that didn't stop him and his first 100 days from getting completely roasted at the event.
Hasan Minhaj, a Daily Show correspondent, was chosen to host this year's dinner - which many celebs, in addition to the president, skipped out on due to comedian Samantha Bee's rival event, Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Nonetheless, he still managed to make the most of the erm, interesting, situation by being completely and utterly savage.
"I would say it is an honor to do this, but that would be an alternative fact," he began the speech. "It is not. No one one wanted to do this so of course it falls in the hands of an immigrant. That's how it always goes down." LMAO.
As if that weren't already an OMG-worthy opening, shit got especially real when Minhaj finally took aim at the, "elephant (not) in the room."
"We’ve got to address the elephant that’s not in the room: the leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow. It’s a very long flight. As for the other guy, I think he’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke."
*Drops mic* And that about sums up the current U.S. political situation. Watch Minhaj's entire speech below:
