Trump announced on Sunday that he is moving his latest effort to distract the country via fake news awards show from Monday to Wednesday.
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 interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!

The interest that Trump referred to came from late night comedians mocking the neurotic president.
The Daily Show took out a full-page ad nominating themselves:

No one is interested in Trump’s desperate and pathetic attempts to fight with the media.
The United States has real problems that need to be solved, but the wasting his time trying to embarrass the media with a fake awards show.
The fake president is trying to distract the nation with a fake awards show, and every single elected and Republican candidate for office needs to be asked to defend this behavior.
