We had a feeling that the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was going to be a little strange this year. President Trump boycotted the event and has a notoriously bad relationship with the press. Presidents in the past were able to poke fun at themselves through comedy, but this year, President Trump attended a rally in Pennsylvania instead. Luckily, comedian and Correspondents’ Dinner host Hasan Minhaj made the most of the awkwardness.
The Daily Show comedian had some great jokes up his sleeve, and here are a few of them:
1. The Elephant in the Room
2. We’d drive a Camry at this point
3. It got real really quick
4. Keep him distracted
5. We love the reference
6. Not fake news
7. There is no lie
