"Nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar," says Stephen Colbert, explaining why he's campaigning hard to be crowned the King of Fake News. Responding to President Trump’s announcement Tuesday of the "most dishonest & corrupt media awards of the year," Colbert told a Late Night audience Wednesday he's erected a "for your consideration" billboard in Times Square, reports CNN. Among the imaginary "Fakies" categories in which he hopes to be recognized: "Least Breitbarty," "Smallest Button," and "The Eric Trump Memorial Award for Disappointment." Trump's awards are slated for 5pm ET Monday. (More Stephen Colbert stories.)
