Trump postpones his 'fake news' awards

039;Daily Show' launches ad campaign for Trump's 'Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards'

Donald Trump moves 'Fake News Awards' back by nine days due to 'greater importance'

The president initially said he would be announcing the accolades this Monday, and didn't give a reason for the change.

Tapper cut off the interview with Miller, accusing the White House adviser of being "obsequious".

Writing on Twitter he said: "The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday. Stay tuned!", he wrote.

It also says the Trump campaign did not expect to win the United States election and Trump himself was "befuddled" by the result, that he was angry A-list stars snubbed his inauguration, and that he found the White House "scary".

Trump has previously labelled as "fake news" reporting on attendance numbers at his inauguration, his lack of immediate condemnation of violent white nationalists in Charlottesville and Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections. Maybe-maybe-there was a chance that we would, for at least a couple minutes, stop paying attention to Donald Trump.

CBS' "Late Night" host Stephen Colbert threw his hat in the ring for Trump's awards by putting a giant "for your consideration" billboard in Times Square, CBS News reported.

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah followed suit by posting a "for your consideration" ad on Twitter that included multiple quotes about him from conservative media outlets, including "Political propaganda disguised as entertainment", "Trevor Noah is an anti-Trump hack", and "Monotonous... liberal dogma".
