  • The Daily Show with Trevor Noah has launched a hilarious ad campaign

Maybe-maybe-there was a chance that we would, for at least a couple minutes, stop paying attention to Donald Trump.

US President Donald Trump has tweeted he will announce "fake news awards" next week.

Trump says he'll give out the awards on January 17, but the White House hasn't said much about them. "Stay tuned!" he tweeted.

Set your smartphone alarms and refresh your RSS feeds appropriately, because Donald Trump will be excitedly announcing the nominees for his self-proclaimed "Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards" on Monday evening. He added that the victor of such an award should get a "fake news trophy".

"Personally, I'm excited for the Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the year", he said. "Victor to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!"

A North Korean missile crashed into one of its cities previous year
The North Korean missile was launched on April 28, last year, from Pukchang Airfield in South Pyongan Province. North Korea has not been lucky with missiles of late with a string of failures that engulfed the nation.

Late in the evening, Fox News listed out some news stories of other networks that later proved to be inaccurate. The bad news is he's itching to start a nuclear war.

Trump had promised to hold the mock awards show to castigate mainstream news organizations for their coverage of his presidency. "And we want to hear from you", the email said. "Some journalists and liberal pundits think that Americans are too stupid to see through their amateur efforts to manipulate public opinion, but THEY'RE WRONG".

As per the Trump Campaign list, the competition for "King of Fame news" is between three news outlets.

ABC News incorrectly claiming Trump ordered Michael Flynn to contact Russian officials while a candidate.

CNN claiming Trump and Trump Jr. were given access to WikiLeaks documents. The show bought a Times Square billboard and took out an ad on Twitter to court the president's attention.
