“Only in America can a Muslim kid get on this stage and make fun of the president.”

Watch Hasan Minhaj's full speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Maybe you've heard: Donald Trump has a contentious relationship with the press. So it's no surprise that the orange chickenshit did not attend Saturday's annual White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC. However, host Hasan Minhaj was on hand to say what sorely needed to said, and he did not pull any punches.

"I would say it is an honor to be here, but that would be an alternative fact," Minhaj joked. "It is not. No one wanted to do this. So of course, it lands in the hands of an immigrant. That's how it always goes down."

The Daily Show correspondent took shots at everyone from Bill O'Reilly to Sean Spicker to CNN. And of course, Donald Trump. He also stressed the importance of free speech, the First Amendment, and the crucial role of the press in upholding the ideals of democracy. Minhaj also acknowledged that it was weird and amazing for him, a brown kid to be standing up there talking shit about the president, live on C-SPAN.

"Only in America can a first generation Indian American Muslim kid get on this stage and make fun of the president," Minhaj said. "The Orange Man behind the Muslim ban."

Here's the full video of Hasan Minhaj's address:

I love to spend my time online and on some outdoor activities that I like. I spend my weekends by going out with my friends and family. I also love to travel around the world if there a window for monetary budget. I have been into some exciting places and I am surprised to new things I saw.
