Trump Destroyed by Comedian Hasan Minhaj at 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner


Ladies and Gentlemen,
Hasan Minhaj
*Cheering and clapping*
Wow
Thank you. Wow. Oh my god.
Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the series finale
of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
*laughter*
Oh man.
My name is Hasan Minhaj, or as i’ll be known in a few weeks, number 830287
*laughter*
Who would have thought,
with everything going on in the country right now,
that a Muslim would be standing on this stage
for the ninth year in a row baby!
we had 8 years of Barack, whats another year, i see you “fam”
I see you Barry, what you doin’ right now? You jet skiing while the world burns? That’s cool, that’s cool.
That’s cool.
For those of you
who don’t know me, I am a correspondent on the Daily show on Comedy Central.
Now I see some of you whispering to each other,
“What is Comedy Central?”

Um, its basically an internship for Netflix.
*quiet laughter*
I’d like to than Jeff Mason and the White House Correspondence association for having me.
I would say “it is an honor to be here” but that would be an alternative fact.
It is not, uhhhh, no one wanted to do this, so of course it lands in the hands of an immigrant.
That’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?
RIP to Don Rickles, the only Donald with skin thick enough to take a joke like that.
RIP to the legend.
I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Tha-that’s my only— That’s my o-only Trump joke.
I was explicitly told not to go after the administration. I promise you,
That’s my only Trump joke.
(“You were not told that!”)
Believe me.
it is amazing to be surrouded by some of the greatest journalists in the world
and yet when we all checked into the Hilton on friday we all got a USA today
everytime a USA today slides underneath my door it’s like they’re saying, “hey, you’re not that smart right ?”
USA today is what happens when the coupon section takes over the newspaper
Is this an article about global warming or 50 cents off tide
Either way, the pictures are so pretty
Tonight, is about defending the first amendment and the freed press and I am truly honored to be here.
I don’t have a solution on how to win back trust
Because you are how the president gets his news
Not from advisers, not from experts, not from intelligence agencies
You can’t make any mistakes because when one of you messes up, he blames your entire group.
And now you know what it feels like to be a minority
And… and I can see some of you guys complaining, like what?
I gotta work twice as hard for half the credit? Remember…
You’re a minority!
You guys got a lot more experience than me, but I got three decades of being brown.
So if you want to survive the age of Trump, you gotta think like a minority.
And now that you’re a minority, oh man…
Everyone is gonna expect you to be the mouth piece for the entire group.
So I hate to say it, but somewhere right now…
all of you are being represented… by Heraldo Rivera.
See now that you are truly a minority
there is a distorted version of you out there
you know… Taco Bell for Mexican culture
Panda Express for Chinese culture
Huffington Post for Journalism
And Then
When you actually manage to do great work
You get hit with the most condescending line in the English language
Hey…
You’re actually one of the good ones
Then you have to smile and say “Thank you”
Kinda sucks, doesn’t it?
By the way, you guys are not really minorities, you guys are super white…. but…
…but…I can see MS NBC behind, “We got our minority card…”
No!
… but your work is invaluable. And I mean that, as a fake journalist. I am rooting for you.
We’re a hundred days in. One thousand, three hundred and sixty days to go.
You guys are running the marathon, and I’m at the half-mile mark giving you tape for your nipples.
So I’m wishing you nothing but the best!
You chafed then, you’ll chafe ….. a long way to go!

This …. This has been one of the strangest events I have ever done in my life…
I’m being honest with you!
Like, I feel like I’m a tribute in The Hunger Games…
Like, if this goes poorly, Steve Bannon gets to eat me… but…
I was asked to not roast the President and the administration, in their absentia
… and I completely understand that.
We are in a very strange situation, where there’s a very combative relationship
between the press and the President
but
now that you guys are minorities
just for this moment
You might understand the position I was in
and it’s the same position a lot of minority kids feel in this country
and it’s, you know, “Do I come up here, and just try to fit in…?
… and not ruffle any feathers?”
… Or do I say how I really feel?”
Because this event is about celebrating the First Amendment and Free Speech.
Free Speech is the foundation of an open and liberal democracy
from college campuses to the White House
Only in America
can a first generation Indian-American Muslim kid
get on this stage,
and make fun of the President!
The orange man behind the Muslim ban!
… and it’s a sign to the rest of the world
it’s an amazing tradition,
that shows the entire world
that even the President
is not beyond the reach of the First Amendment.
But the President didn’t show up!
Ale prezident se nezjel!

… because Donald Trump doesn’t care about free speech!
The man who tweets everything that enters his head
refuses to acknowledge
the Amendment that allows him to do it.
Think about it, it’s almost, what is it, eleven?
It’s eleven pm right now.
In four hours, Donald Trump will be tweeting
about how bad Nicky Minhaj bombed at this dinner!
… and he’ll be doing it, completely sober!
… and that’s his right!
and I’m proud that all of us
are here tonight to defend that right.
even if the man in the White House never would.
So I’d like to thank the White House Correspondents’ Association for having me here…
I want to thank all of you.
I want to thank Woodward and Bernstein for inspiring a generation of journalists…

and I would like to thank Donald Trump
for inspiring the next!
Thank you so much, it’s been an honor

Good night! I love you! Thank you!
Thank you, guys, I really appreciate it. Thank you!

  1. I LEAVE A REASONABLE COMMENT AND THIS MORON DELETES IT,GO BACK TO ISIS,how many people did
    You lose at 9/11,looks like your meth.

  2. None of this was funny. Just inaccurate. Keep him distracted so he doesn't get us into war with N. Korea? Am I missing something?

  3. 4:09 "If you go after the Adminstration it would be petty… in others words presidential!"

    Nailed it.

  4. Ok guys I know you all try to be nice and open minded about Islam and that it's not the cause of terrorists, well that's because you know nothing about, it I was born a Muslim and raised as a Muslim and yes "non religious" muslims are peaceful but the real religion and religious people are following dangerous beliefs and thoughts, and they do hate non muslims, trust it's a horrible religion I was shocked when I discovered these horrible facts the first time! SO YES Islam is the religion of hate, injustice,and terrorism

  5. We are here to talk about the truth "Trumptard boy is a liar in chief" "Journalists are his biggest enemies"

  6. WTF When he says he’s done to much bombing this month the camera guy literally shows the woman with jihab

  7. 1.- They asked you not to roast the clown? So where its the free speech right then? I would roast that one anyway, respect its earn by the way a person conducts towards others. And by the good example of character the person shows. Golden rule? ops! its america, no believers.
    2.- All the attendees cringed when you flip the tortilla at them, and told them you were representing the minority now to save their arses. because now they are like minorities for being criticized for their lack of Excellency on informative job.
    3.-They also felt the stereotype title "whites" when they don't use it on themselves mostly. So they felt a little bit uncomfortable. How does minorities feel when they said, black, muslim, latino, mexican, brown, etc? Yeah! speechless, the room felt like a grave yard, any one?
    Hope they learnt something from your speech, remember and feel sometimes like a minority to understand and do their jobs better.
    Like it! By the way, no other person wanted the job because now they want to really talk their mind with the jokes. The right to free speech its still blocked in the burocracy of journalism. I will called it "afraid to speak" Too bad. So you were right, if something went wrong with your jokes, the clown and his hyenas will be rosting you for being a muslim minority. They were the chicken fried ones. Good job!

  8. Why does does everybody say that just because your a minority u have already have a set back in life the left brainwashes you into thing you are are a victim of some invisible patriarchy but that’s just not true

  9. I don’t agree with the comedian views as it seems cheap vindictive and mocking than genuine ribbing. But nonetheless it shows the strength of press freedom and freedom of speech even if POTUS did not attend.

  10. Trump Sucks. change my mind. If you're going to try to change my mind, it would help to give me some evidence…. 4 years into presidency and half the world is irate from his sh*t

  11. whenever the camera shows some of the audiences whispering to each other, I was afraid some of them might be, "Get him off the stage"

  12. That last minute about Trump not showing up to the event representing free speech while tweeting everything in his brain was the perfect closer

  13. The thing is you are able to roast your President like that says a lot about USA.
    In other countries your carrier is basically over.

  14. I didn't laugh once,,I must see my dealer about this weed… Ffs m8 give it up,I laughed more when mother Teresa died…

  15. I must be watching the wrong video. I find his comedy mediocre and it seems like the rest of the audience does at all. reprocessing the same old trite stuff and passing it off as comedy doesn't really cut it.
