It looks like a stand-up comedian's willing to pay $300 to any journalist who has the guts to find out what President Trump has to say about the US' relationship with Wakanda.

New channels have been blowing up lately after reports came out that President Trump allegedly referred to African nations as "shithole countries" and while the world's been busy condemning Trump's racism, netizens have been busy making social commentary by making memes and poking fun at the President.


Taking to Twitter, writer and stand-up comedian Sara Benincasa began offering journalists $300 if they could "very seriously ask(s) Trump his opinion on our nation's relations with Wakanda and gets the question and answer recorded live on video."

Three hundred dollars might not seem that much of an offer, but Benincasa claims that she also "knows what most reporters make so…$300."

It's a funny challenge, and we wonder what Trump would answer if someone ever had the moxie to come up to him and ask what he thought of the fictional African nation.


First introduced by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in Fantastic Four #52 back in 1966, Wakanda is a wealthy and technologically advanced African nation which development is in part to its generous deposits of vibranium. The country is also the home of T'Challa, otherwise known as Black Panther.

What do you think the President's response would be if he were ever really asked about Wakanda and US relations? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
