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

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Hasan Minhaj
*Cheering and clapping*
Thank you. Wow. Oh my god.
Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the series finale
of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Oh man.
My name is Hasan Minhaj, or as i’ll be known in a few weeks, number 830287
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
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…”
… 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
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. Nazi steve bannon had me ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. Hypocrisy is a serious sickness and a great crime. It means making an outward display of Islam whilst inwardly concealing kufr. Hypocrisy is more dangerous than kufr (disbelief) and the punishment for it is more severe, because it is kufr mixed with Islam and its harmful effects are greater. Hence Allaah will put the hypocrites in the lowest level of Hell, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):ย 

    โ€œVerily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth (grade) of the Fire; no helper will you find for them[al-Nisaaโ€™ 4:145]

  3. I'm sitting here surfing the net and came across two interesting clips. This one and another with Chris Rock hosting the 2017 Oscar's. Both Chris and Hasan speak a very inconvenient truth with human that makes the non-brown people squirm. Only brown people will stand up in these kinds of situations and tell a truth that others want to ignore. I know that this is very broad brushed, but the point still remains…….

  4. I'm laughing so hard lmfao๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Omg been wheezing the whole time now๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ and all those faces only make it better๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  6. I don't feel the title was accurate, however; I feel like the journalists were more of the target, but at the same time, his message was empowering and I wish they would have taken it to heart.

  7. The people in the audience need to go to a clinic to get the poles removed from their butts. That, and Exlax.

  8. Youtube just recommended this to me in the middle of 2019. Never heard of this guy. His jokes can't be blistering because Trump didn't bother to come. The Daily Conversation told a direct lie by calling him "one of the bravest". He is in no danger. While Trump has a track record of threatening specious lawsuits against people and smears, there is no trail of bodies as has followed the Clintons. I mean, that the theory that the Clintons have a super sophisticated hit squad (from Arkansas, no less IO guess) has at least a specious plausibility, there is no such rumor about Trump. This is the same kind of vacuous self congratulation as a trivial demonstration against Obama where some of the handful said they feared a drone strike.

    Years ago I listened to right wing criticism and left wing praise for Michelle Wolf's routine at the Correspondents and 1/3 of her jokes were funny, 1/3 were pointlessly nastry and 1/3 were incomprehensible as to why they would be a joke.

    I'm not going to bother with this guy. Thank you, Youtube, for informing me of his existence.

  9. With most of the people butthurt in one way or the other, and pinched faces everywhere I always replay 18:38, that woman dying with laughter was me for 20something minutes of this video ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  10. I love how he calls himself an immigrant because it gives him street cred. He was born in America, but that isn't 'cool'.

  11. If anybody succed in america he is know as the best in the whole world . Wtf america is a planet?
    If u are good in america at something, they rank you no1 world wide , and probally there are many in the world better then you or at the thing that u are doing. Sigh

  12. Salty trump supporters: 19k and counting ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Below: trump supporters saying theyโ€™re not salty.

    You lose at 9/11,looks like your meth.

  14. Brilliant brilliant when there is silence and people are uncomfortable thatโ€™s when you know itโ€™s real

  15. 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?

  16. 4:09 "If you go after the Adminstration it would be petty… in others words presidential!"

    Nailed it.

  17. "He does interviews, makes statements and tweets…..completely sober!" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  18. 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

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

  20. WTF When he says heโ€™s done to much bombing this month the camera guy literally shows the woman with jihab

  21. 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!

  22. 25mins can be summed up into Orange Man Bad, Republicans are nazis, good stuff keep it up for 2020 ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. 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 thatโ€™s just not true

  24. I donโ€™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.
