‘The Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah appears on ‘The Late Show’ with Stephen Colbert on September 17, 2015

Noah’s entry shows the host with a series of quotes including “Isn’t ‘The Daily Show’ a fake news show?” from news program Fox & Friends, which appeared on the show’s Twitter feed as well as a full-page ad in The New York Times on Friday.

Meanwhile, the entry from “The Late Show” features Colbert sitting pensively at a 1950s-style desk pondering a document labeled “fake dossier,” and features a previous quote from Trump, calling him a “no talent guy” Colbert also referred to the awards as the “Fakies,” on his show Wednesday night.

Colbert’s entry, styled like a movie poster, enters all “categories” including “fakest dishonesty,” “corruptest fakeness,” and “smallest button,” in reference to Trump’s Tuesday tweet that his “nuclear button” is bigger and more powerful than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s.

Michael Wolff, author of explosive book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” was also cited by people on Twitter as a potential award “recipient”. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the book “trash”, “fraudulent” and “tabloid gossip” on Thursday.
