In case you missed it, Hasan Minhaj is this years White House Correspondents Dinner host.
The comedian is known for being a senior correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Hes been on the show since November of 2014.
The White House Correspondents Dinner is basically the Comedy Central Roast of politics, except its not on Comedy Central and the president of the United States is usually there and is definitely roasted. But the president also gets to do a roast at the end!
But President Trump wont be there this year!Poor, little Donny cant handle being made fun of, so he and his small hands are skipping the dinner. Hell probably be golfing at Mar-A-Lago instead.
Or, as I imagine he spends every Saturday night, hell be curled up in a ball in his bathtub crying because he doesnt understand why people are being so mean to him.
Anyway, back to Hasan. This is him!
So handsome!! The comedian has been around for a while, so you might know a fair amount about him.
Between his stand-up (which will be coming to Netflix soon), his YouTube series The Truth with Hasan Minhaj and his time on The Daily Show, Minhaj is a shoo-in to become a household name.
But did you know hes married???? OOoooOooOooooooOOOooooo, ~marriage~.
Look at this objectively very attractive couple:
You probably didnt know he was married because his wife, Beena Minhaj, keeps an EXTREMELY low profile. Like, the most information we could find on her was some quotes from Hasan from a New York Times article from 2016, and those quotes only mentioned things about their apartment and how she decorated them when the couple moved from LA to NYC.
But women are more than just their interior decorating preferences! And theyre DEFINITELY more than who theyre married to! So we did some more digging.
And shes actually a pretty impressive person. She has a doctorate in medical administrationand works in non-profits. Literally, a very well-educated saint. She and Hasan are college sweethearts; they met at UCLA and were married in 2014.
Hasan told the New York Times he was a bachelor with Scarface posters in his home before meeting Beena. Classic. He said,
Beena and I didnt move in together until we got married. We kept it very traditional Mom, Dad, if youre reading this so I had to evolve very quickly. I went from Scarface photos to family photos. Id never had throw pillows in my life, but Ive now become accustomed to them. And I will say that scented candles are really nice.
Yeah, I love me some Yankee Candles too, Hasan. Glad Beena has shown you the light.
But back to her accomplishments as a very impressive and smart person. Through some more digging, we found what appears to be Beenas profile on CEP Americas website.
According to the site, CEP America is an integrated team of emergency medicine, hospital medicine, anesthesiology, urgent care, and post-acute care physicians committed to caring for patients with acute medical conditions. Beena is reportedly a practice management consultant.
Beenasbio on the site makes her seem like a literal angel and, once again, VERY IMPRESSIVE PERSON:
Beena Patel, DrPH, MPH strives to improve the quality of care and delivery through patient-centered innovations. She is a recent graduate of the Health Policy and Management Ph.D program at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her dissertation on the implementation of the West Los Angeles HPACT has been recognized nationally and replicated as a best practice across the country. She continues to be an active researcher, and her work is dedicated to the heroes of our nation who find themselves homeless in an effort to give them a voice.
So, there you have it! Thats what we know about Beena Minhaj.
