Trump moves back his 'Fake News Awards,' citing high interest

The Daily Show Launchs Campaign for Trump's Dishonest Media Awards With Full Page Print Ad

In a tweet posted late Sunday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he plans to postpone his fake awards show for fake news to Wednesday, January 17, from Monday, January 8 - just in case you thought things couldn't get any sillier. "The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!"

The "Fake News Awards", as Trump calls it, are going to "the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media".

The late-night comedians responded by copying each other in an attempt to get the "Fake News Media" award, expressing the view that receiving an award would be a badge of honor.

Colbert's entry, styled like a movie poster, enters all "categories" including "fakest dishonesty", "corruptest fakeness", and "smallest button", in reference to Trump's Tuesday tweet that his "nuclear button" is bigger and more powerful than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's.

The US President also indicated what kind of award categories the public can expect to see. "Stay tuned!" Mr. Trump ended his tweet on the subject.

The President's announcement comes as his administration is dealing with significant allegations from journalist Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury, detailing Mr Trump's first year in the White House. Maybe-maybe-there was a chance that we would, for at least a couple minutes, stop paying attention to Donald Trump.

The ad includes a photo of Trevor as well as some quotes calling the show "monotonous ... liberal dogma" and "a fake news show".
