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

Ladies and Gentlemen, Hasan Minhaj *Cheering and clapping* Wow Thank you. Wow. Oh my god. Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the series finale of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. *laughter* Oh man. My name is Hasan Minhaj, or as i’ll be known in a few weeks, number 830287 *laughter* 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 Hey… 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…” No! … 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 but 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!

About the author


  1. When I was marching in a parade during Mardi gras I saw this guy have a sign saying vote for Trump 2020 and I got so mad because I don't want him as our president again

  2. If every muslim was evil our world would be in ruins wouldnโ€™t it? People grow tf up, muslims are very nice and kind people

  3. Democrats demented Ideology of a racist = Anyone who is patriotic & loves America, our flag, our freedom, our liberty, our military, our border security, our police, our babies, Our constitution, our President, all conservative people, God and the family unit.

    We would have loss WW2 to Nazi Germany with these mentally demented Democrats of today in charge.

    That's why the most disastrous areas in America are districts run by Democrats….San Francisco, Chicago, Baltimore, etc.

    So why the hell would anyone elect a Democrat in Washington DC to ANY position making the laws of our Land, when they can't even clean up their own backyard & districts??!!

    Wake up America!

  4. He said Comedy Central was the "internship for Netflix" AND THEN HE BOUNCED AND GOT HIS OWN SHOW ON NETFLIX THE MAD LAD

  5. 12:48 I love Hasan for dropping the jokes halfway through and giving them a full on "I'm not angry I'm disappointed" parent speech at the press. They needed to hear that. Idk if it worked, but they can never say we didn't try to call them out in a respectful manner.

  6. I love how most of these white people got a dose of what minorities experience. The WASPiness of this country is eventually going to get bred out! Amen!

  7. 8:40 He was more explicit this time…

  8. Except the correspondents dinner is irrelevant now except to the sycophant media, the public at large will respect journalism altogether when they stop taking sides and just report on the news without the OPINE, keep mocking Trump thou, Obama made such a mess of things that it got Trump elected and when he gets re-elected in 2020 what is the excuse going to be then?

  9. I can second that thing about House of Cards being relaxing compared to all this lol. Two years later and things are only worse.

  10. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  11. Exposing Nazi and Cannibals in the world. Surprise he is a Mason and get privy to say what he said. ๐ŸŒŸโšก๐ŸŒž

  12. You can look and see every die hard Trump sucker in the audience. By there stone cold faces and lack of human emotion. Trump supporter requirements have no soul and suck my starfish everyday.

  13. Just hearing the name of the so called comedian makes me want to puke, all people that have roots from africa or are african are wild beasts… there isnโ€™t ONE black nation in this world fit to rule themselves, after decolonisation all those nations had railroads and more to progress, but progression isnโ€™t in their nature. The fact that such a wild beast has the ability to speak in front of so many people means that america needs some changes, same goes for Europe…

  14. … Camera is on most of the audience (white men n women) only when he mentioned booming it was on the hajabi women… Was she the only one???.. Besides that I love how honestly n he doesn't give a daym.. U like it or not he just does his own thing โค๏ธ.. The pissed white guys tho ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

  15. Muslim never identifies never as American or Indian …He will always identify them self as Muslims….I don't know why is this the case….

  16. The video and the comment section doesn't seem to match. I'm not white or rich but I do know what funny is. This isn't it.

  17. The way crowd had to listen to it no matter what, ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ they were so scared to even laugh out loud lmao. Even if I u r pro Trump those jokes were hilarious

  18. my dear muslim friends in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh United we stand should we believe that our ancestors were hindus and the hindus gave shelter to Imam hussain family.

    You should know Sanatan Dharma has no conflict with ahl bayt followers of family of prophet Mohammed. Family of prophet Mohammed is related to Hindus. Conflicts are against those who donโ€™t follow prophet Mohammed preachings. Pakistan is sacred Hindu and Sikh land which we gave happily to Muslims but any further encroachment of Hindu land will be treated as offensive attack on india and Indians.

    Conflicts are only with those who want to follow Saudi Arabia culture. There are few who feel being indian is less respectable. There are those who are drifting away from Imam Hussain.

    Prince Mohammed bin salman of Saudi 6 months ago gave an interview where he said Saudi was asked by west to fanatize and brainwash Muslims in south east Asia, he acknowledged that Saudi did do the task as requested by west. It did distribute toxic material and paid clerics all over south east Asia. Now it is for Muslims of south east Asia to think weather it want to follow ahul bayt ( prophets family) or Saudi which collided with west for vested reasons. As said earlier the more Muslims move closer to salafism the further they will go from prophet Mohammed preachings, and the further Muslim drift from prophet original preachings the more they will become less compatible with sanatan dharma followers. Quran says things that prophets came to people of all lands in their own language. Quran says all prophets propagated message of Allah or god.

    I urge my muslim friends to follow clerics like wahihuddin khan rather than zakir naik, the later is agent of Saudi and West to divide subcontinent people. I urge Muslims to listen to Level headed Tahir Gora of Tag tv rather then believe our bribed Indian media. I urge you to listen to Arif Mohammed khan, listen to Sadhguru, listen to Pakistani humanists and scholars like Javed ahmed ghamidi.

    However our problem is the moment we speak against those who harmful to Islam and humanity 90% good Muslims and our own friends come in their support. We donโ€™t know why Muslims get brainwashed by vested interests so easily, our partition is an example of this. I find there are so many good and bad people on both sides of the border, irrespective of religion yet we get influenced by actions of those who should be ignored.

  19. Great… but… CAN ANYTHING BEEN done without "only in America"? Do you even understand how ridiculous is sounds these days? And more so each passing day…

  20. And yet Trump is still president and he and his administration re still systematically destroying any shred of decency, truth and goodness of the US!
