Hasan was disappointed Trump was not there!

By S.H.Moulana

Thirty one year old Hasan Minhaj of ‘The Daily Show’ hit the headlines everywhere by his speech he made at the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner which was skipped by the US president Donald Trump.

The president decided not to attend the dinner and hold a rally instead in Pennsylvania to celebrate his first 100 days in office.

‘The Daily Show’ comedian and host Hasan mocked everyone from Bill O’Reilly to the 45th president himself during the annual event.

President Trump took the brunt of the jokes as Hasan Minhaj referring to him as ‘Liar in Chief’ He said ‘We 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.’

Turning his gun at Sean Spicer he said that Spicer has been doing PR work since 1999, which is 18 years. Somehow after 18 years, he has got to move denying the Holocaust.

Coming back to Trump’s presidency, he said ‘We are 100 days in, 1030 days to go. You guys are running the marathon, and I am at the half mile mark, giving you take for your nipples.’

The dinner has got particularly favorable reviews this year by a number of media and Hasan was applauded right through out for his hilarious presentation and very especially when he said ‘In which country a Muslim minority man could be tolerated blasting the country’s president except in USA?’

Hasan is a first generation Indian American Muslim and hails from California. It’s worth watching the video in full!
