The pre-taped introduction to Samantha Bee's Not The White House Correspondent's Dinner, an event planned to rival the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, began with Cregg taking questions at a faux press briefing before she let rip at those bigoted figures who pretend to be real journalists, claiming that they were "ruining the reputation" a legitimate press.

"I thought the whole evening was arranged around a response to a guy who wasn't there", said Carlson, who noted that he has attended the dinner for 25 years, but was unable to make it on Saturday. Trump did not attend the event in the nation's capital, instead going to a rally in Harrisburg, Pa. With nothing off limits, Minhaj roasted Trump, the media and Steve Bannon. "It's 11 p.m", Minhaj said. Daily Show correspondent Hassan Minhaj performed a blistering act, unsparing in his barbs. "Journalists, ISIS, normal-length ties", Minhaj said as he went on to make fun of the media. And it's a sign to the rest of the world, it's this wonderful tradition that not even the president is beyond the reach of the first amendment.

Trump Forms Commission on Election Integrity After Voter Fraud Claims
Trump first announced January 25 on Twitter his intention to form the commission and launch the probe. He has long argued that illegal voting, especially by noncitizens, is rampant.

But in the age of Trump, I know that you guys have to be more ideal now, more than ever. Is Trump a Russian spy? "I mean, she could have been here, but I think someone told her the event was in Wisconsin and MI". I'm watching the news!

Minhaj added: "I would say it is an honor to do this, but that would be an alternative fact. Trump's actions speak much louder than his words, and it is abundantly clear that we can not trust our president's word", Pa. Dems Chairman Marcel Groen said in a release before the event. Because you are how the president gets his news. "As for the other guy, I think he's in Pennsylvania because he can't take a joke", Minhaj said amidst laughter from the audience. In it, Bee receives a film reel from a frightened George Takei, which turns out to be a video of an alternate timeline in which Hillary Clinton won the election in November, and in which Bee hosted the White House Correspondents's Dinner. "Without a free press, we wouldn't have a functioning democracy", she continued. When that happens, we should own up to it. "Next year we'll make it more exciting for them and show up, but we have a good chance of showing up here next year too", he said. "Mr. President, the media is not fake news", Mr.
