One supposes that the list of nominees for the award was remarkably small this year, though Tapper did try to hold Trump and his minions responsible for their words and actions/fabrications and outright lies, unlike so many others in the media.

Bee, host of TBS' "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee," praised Tapper for "making cable news bearable" after the election and gave him the show's first "Thunder C---" award in the form of a graphic T-shirt. (Time Warner is the parent company of both TBS and CNN.)

"Although I can't show it to my children, I do appreciate the effort," Tapper said, holding up the T-shirt. "It has been an election where I've said similar words that start with a 'P' but not that particular one."

Tapper concluded, "I really appreciate it. I will never, ever wear it. But thank you."
