Trumpies Postponed!

Say it ain’t so Joe (that would be ‘Shoeless’ Joe Jackson, not ‘Joltin’ Joe’ Dimaggio). From Politico

Donald Trump said on Sunday that the “fake news awards” he teased recently will be postponed, saying interest had exceeded his expectations.

“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,” the president wrote on Twitter. “The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!”

Yeah, as in far more people are interested in getting one.

Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” took out a full-page ad in The New York Times with a for-your-consideration appeal along the lines of the pricey campaigns movie studios use to pitch their films and actors for Academy Awards. TBS’ “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” tweeted an ad pushing the show for “shrillest reporting,” and Stephen Colbert hawked his CBS late night show, tweeting that he was “so excited” for the “Fakies” and purchasing a billboard in Times Square.

This delay means it’s not too late for dark horse contenders like John Oliver, Seth Meyers, and Jordan Klepper, as well as SNL candidates like Alec Baldwin, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon.
