Hasan Minhaj, a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, begins his correspondents dinner speech by touching on the importance of upholding the first amendment, and how it's vital to hold the White House administration responsible for its actions.

Minhaj takes a series of shots at the 45th President throughout his correspondents dinner speech -- mentioning topics such as his controversial connections to Russia, his son's trophy hunting, his complexion, his opinion on the press, and his fervent use of Twitter. In addition, Minhaj considers the actions of his administration, including those of Betsy DeVos, Mike Pence, Sean Spicer, and Ivanka Trump.

By considering how the current political landscape will impact those within the US, as well as beyond it, Minhaj inspires his audience to continue to stand up for their rights, especially when it comes to free speech.
