Hasan Minhaj The View Video


Hasan Minhaj called Donald Trump “Lord Voldermort” on “The View” on Friday. Watch the video below.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Minhaj hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner a few weeks ago. Though Trump wasn’t in attendance, breaking tradition, the comedian still mocked him, as well as the media. Now he appeared on “The View” as the guest co-host for the talk show’s “Guy Day Friday.”

“That was super fun,” he said of the gala. Joy Behar noted that Trump was the first president in decades to skip the annual event, prompting Minjah to say, “The last time Reagan didn’t show up, but he was recovering from a gun shot wound. Trump was like, ‘I can’t take a joke.'”

Another person missing from the event was Ben Carson. Referring to the Harry Potter villain and his followers, Minhaj cracked, “Lord Voldermort had put out the memo. None of the Death Eaters were allowed to show up.” The comparison sparked laughs among the studio audience.

Minhaj also revealed he was planning on targeting Carson in his speech, and had asked for help that night to see if he was in the crowd. “I’m like there’s only three black people here: Van Jones, Don Lemon, third random guy.” But despite having “all this Ben Carson material ready to go,” he wasn’t able to use it. Until now, at least, when he took some shots. And, as Gossip Cop noted, Minhaj also made some digs at Trump during a “hot topic” about James Comey. Check out the video below!
