Muslim Bombs … Hasan Minhaj 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner
President Trump won’t be missing much at the White House Correspondents’ Association gala he’s skipping on April 29.
Hasan Minhaj, who was named last week as the entertainment at the event, underwhelmed the crowd at the Comedy Cellar on MacDougal Street as a special surprise the other night.
“He came up to the stage with 10 pages of jokes to try out on us,” one patron told me. “But his jokes fell flat. The audience laughed maybe three times.”
Minhaj, a senior correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” had some one-liners about Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper and Bill O’Reilly, but focused on Trump.
“One was about the crucial strategic decisions Trump has to make, like picking between a sand wedge and gap wedge when golfing,” my source said. Minhaj admitted the material needed work.
Even the CNN panel said the dude sucked ass.
