In honour of the recently ended March Madness tournament, “The Daily Show” hosted its own tournament called Third Month Mania.
For Third Month Mania, “The Daily Show” team went through all of President Donald Trump’s tweets and created a bracket to determine the “greatest Donald Trump tweet of all time.” Six million fans voted on Comedy Central’s website to determine Trump’s very best tweet.
On Wednesday night, “The Daily Show” announced the winning tweet. And this one from 2014 was the lucky winner:
Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2014
“This may not be the meanest or the most racist,” correspondent Hasan Minhaj said.
“But it will be the one tweet we will get the answer to in the next four years,” correspondent Roy Wood Jr. responded.
Before the big reveal, Minhaj and Wood mentioned the runners-up:
How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled “Blackish”? Can you imagine the furor of a show, “Whiteish”! Racism at highest level?

So, lets get this right. Steve Jobs dies and leaves his wife everything-billions of dollars. Now his wife has a boyfriend (lover). Oh Steve!

“Highest level,” Roy Wood Jr. joked of Trump’s “Black-ish” tweet. “And we all know the racism scale, Hasan. It goes the N-word, slavery, ‘Black-ish.'”
“And by the way, they don’t need to call shows ‘Whiteish.’ They have other names. Like ‘Frasier,'” Minhaj said.
