For Your Consideration: Stephen Colbert Wants To Win Trump’s “Dishonest & Corrupt Media Award” [VIDEO]

Variety reports:

Stephen Colbert took the opportunity on Wednesday night’s episode of “The Late Show” to unveil his bid for Trump’s “Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards,” which the president announced in a tweet Tuesday. “Or, as we call ’em in the biz, the Fakies,” Colbert quipped. “Because nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar, and I, of course, don’t want to get snubbed.”

Colbert went on to explain that he had placed a billboard in Times Square — “the failing New York Times Square” — announcing his candidacy in all categories, including “Outstanding Achievement in Parroting George Soros’ Talking Points,” “The Eric Trump Memorial Award for Disappointment,” and “Smallest Button” — a jab at Trump’s recent tweet aimed at Kim Jong Un in which he claimed to have a larger nuclear button than the North Korean leader.
