Hasan Minhaj's full comedy routine at the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner. The comedian told one blistering joke after another about the sitting President of the United States, Donald Trump, and the media that covers him. Given this moment in history, it will go down as one of the bravest, and most timely, comedic performances in the dinner's history.

Whoever came up with the idea to let a comedian roast the living hell out of everybody attending the White House Correspondents Dinner every year is a genius

That man knows he’s not performing for most of the people in the audience, he’s performing for us at home

He’s got Balls and a lot of heart to work a crowd that tough. He knew it was going to be a tough crowd when he took the gig. That’s being a real comedian. Kill or Bomb!

How did we reach a time where comedians are a more reliable source than actual news channels

I love the break down of the crowd:

30 % laughing
20% Trying very hard not to laugh
20% Mad or confused
30% Mouths _literally_ hanging open in shock and awe

Wow. How did I not see this until now. I can't even begin to acknowledge the respect for Hasan pulling ZERO punches on this stage and speaking his mind. Nothing but proper bombs being dropped left and right and a crowd of people furious and puckering their buttholes hearing these facts aloud. What a masterpiece. RESPECT.

He may have "bombed" with that crowd, but the internet and America are laughing. He can't see us, but we are laughing!

For those saying the jokes weren't that funny, well, they really weren't necessarily supposed to be funny. Hasan purposely took this opportunity to bring up important issues that needed to be addressed, and he tried to do it the best way he could without making it sound like a protest or making himself sound like an angry Muslim minority. I don't know about you but I don't think I would be able to bring up these points in such a way where the crowed ends up giving me a standing ovation.

Some of these people need to find their sense of humour. This would kill in Australia.
