President Trump is delaying his so-called "Fake News Awards" until January 17, he tweeted Sunday. Subjects will cover Dishonesty and Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah all took time out their shows on Wednesday to mull over their chances of receiving one of the awards - or as Colbert referred to them, "the Fakies". But now his fans and the journalists will have to wait another 10 days.

"I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o'clock", Trump wrote.

"The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!" he said.

He announced initially announced the awards last Tuesday in a Tweet.

"For your most dishonest & corrupt media awards of the year consideration", the ad began, including various real quotes, including from Breitbart calling the show "political propaganda", and the New York Post describing it as "monotonous...liberal dogma". "So that was Donald Trump's day on Twitter".

Trump frequently rails on the media and accuses reporters and networks of being "fake news". They are all bad.

Fox News has been eliminated from this list, being the favorite channel of Donald Trump.

And, yes, we are actually talking about a Fake News Awards ceremony that has been created by the leader of the free world. "And we want to hear from you", the email said.

The Trump campaign further said that the Americans are exhausted of being lied to.

It said, "ABC News "MISTAKENLY" reported that candidate Trump directed Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials before the election".

TIME corrected that story after a White House aide confirmed that the bust was still in the Oval Office.
