Stephen Colbert Vies For Trump’s “Most Dishonest Award”

Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert, the host of The Late Show, made a “desperate bid to get Trump’s disapproval,” after Trump abruptly tweeted that he would be announcing “the most dishonest & corrupt media awards of the year,” in all caps, of course.

“Last night, in between threatening nuclear war, and, you know, going to sleep with his bed cheeseburger, Donald Trump tweeted…” said Colbert.

See the Trump tweet below:

I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!

Colbert said he wouldn’t have any problems staying tuned to Trump.

“I can’t take my eyes off any part of your presidency,” said Colbert. “It’s like watching a snake swallow democracy. Personally, I’m excited for the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year, or as we call them in the biz, the Fakies, because nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar, and I, of course, don’t want to get snubbed.”

Colbert put a billboard in New York Times Square and tweeted out this “For your consideration” ad on his Twitter page, with hilarious suggestions for the categories that he could win.

“I’m hoping to be nominated in all categories,” said Colbert.
