Stephen Colbert Vies For Inclusion In President Trump's 'Most Corrupt Media Awards'

Trump postpones ‘fake news awards’ to be announced on Jan 17

"I get it. There's one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you're being a factotum in order to please him, OK", Tapper said on "State of the Union", appearing to reference the president.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted: "The Fake News Award, those going to the most corrupt and biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday".

But will the stories that are recognized be "fake" or just unfavorable to the White House? Trump has been quite open and offensive about leading American media outlets including names like CNN, ABC News, The New York Times and the Washington Post.

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting".

Late night hosts took advantage of Trump's latest invention to poke fun at the president - and put themselves up for the honor, of course. These include "Outstanding Achievement In Parroting George Soros' Talking Points" and "Least Breitbarty".

Blake Griffin leveled on inadvertent elbow from JaVale McGee
Griffin's hand could be seen trembling while he was on the floor, but he was able to walk off the court under his own power. At the time of this post, Kevin Durant is listed as questionable for Saturday's game with a calf injury .

"CNN "MISTAKENLY" reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks, it wrote".

"And I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time".

Trump latest tweet comes amid a firestorm over an explosive new book about the Trump presidency, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

Who needs Golden Globes season when we have this instead?

"What an honour to be fake considered along with @StephenAtHome @iamsambee for the fakest media awards".
