Trump had the right idea of skipping the WH Correspondents’ dinner and throwing his own party in Harrisburg, PA.
The comedian set to roast Trump and his admin was comedian Hasan Minhaj from the ‘Daily Show’.
He mocks everyone from Steve Bannon to the President himself.
Minhaj targeted Trump for the majority of his 25 minute rant, referring to him as the ‘Liar in Chief’.
Hasan, who is a muslim, started the targeting by stating, ‘We’ve 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.’
Trump was indeed in Pennsylvania, having scheduled a rally in Harrisburg to mark his 100th day in office. He began his remarks with a lengthy if familiar attack on the news media while dismissing the dinner and its participants.
Trump’s rally made all the headlines.
The Americans at the rally said what they really thought about the media and it’s the most EPIC chant ever.

The crowd started chanting “CNN sucks”… while the network was broadcasting live.
Meanwhile, back at the WHCD Hasan claimed that Trump is attacking the first amendment.
The famous Watergate journalist Bob Woodward said Trump went too far by calling the media ‘fake news’.
Trump’s admin fell subject to scrutiny at the dinner as well. Minhaj stated:
‘I do not see Steve Bannon,’ he said repeatedly, slowing the words ‘not see’ down, giving the effect of saying ‘Nazi- Steve Bannon’.
‘Jeff Sessions couldn’t be here tonight, he was too busy doing a pre-Civil war reenactment. On his RSVP he just wrote just wrote no – which happens to be his second favorite N-word.’
Speaking about the Vice President, he said: ‘Mike Pence wanted to be here tonight, but his wife wouldn’t let him because apparently one of you ladies is ovulating, so good job ladies.’
‘Now, Ivanka Trump isn’t here either, but I wish he was so I could ask her the question we are all thinking. Why?’ He joked about the First Daughter.
