"Now You Know What It's Like To Be A Minority," Very Good

By Baxter

Okay, so we cats have been relentlessly on the record as hating the White House Correspondents' Dinner. We still do, and we always will. The mentally ill person who currently sits at the desk in the Oval Office has not inspired us to love it more.

But we have to take a moment to salute the previously hapless headliner of the evening, who appears to have faked us all out by doing a totally okay job: Hasan Minhaj.

"Even the President is not beyond the reach of the First Amendment," Minhaj said tonight. "Donald Trump doesn't care about free speech. In four hours, Donald Trump will be tweeting about how bad Hasan Minhaj bombed at this dinner, and he'll be doing it completely sober. And that's his right, and I'm proud that all of us are here to defend that right."

Let's at least thank the idiot at 1600 Pennsylvania for lighting a fire under the next generation of intrepid journalists, shall we? We cats PURR.
