Directly following his "Nuclear Button" tweet @KimJongUn, Donald Trump switched topics and announced the inception of brand new awards show. As the Golden Globes and the Grammys peek around the corner in January, Trump's hoping to top them all with — as Stephen Colbert puts it — the Fakies.
Colbert wants a Fakie, badly, since "nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar." Oh man, with writing like that, Colbert is just begging to win the Fakie for "best worst fake news comedy writing." Hopefully that's an actual category.
Colbert's trying to secure an award (a naked gold Trump statue?) so intensely, in fact, that he's rallying support for his nomination with a "for your consideration" billboard in New York's Times Square:
He's gunning for:
- Outstanding Achievement In Parroting George Soros' Talking Points
- Best Sound Mixing
- Best Chex Mixing
- Least Breitbarty
- The Eric Trump Memorial Award For Disappointment
- Fakest Dishonesty
- Corruptest Fakeness
- Dishonest Corruption
- Smallest Button
Here's hoping Colbert can secure "Best Chex Mixing," at the very least. If not, expect this:
We'll find out during Trump's announcement next Monday.
