Our Cartoon President Trailer: Showtime and Stephen Colbert Parody the Trump Administration


Although many thought Stephen Colbert would be forced to give up political comedy when he took over The Late Show, quite the opposite has proven to be true; he has embraced it and the ratings have skyrocketed. Now he’s giving himself another outlet with which to poke fun at President Trump by launching an animated parody series called Our Cartoon President. The show presents an exaggerated version of various White House staffers and Trump family members, delving into their daily lives and relationships. Veteran voice actor Jeff Bergman voices Trump while Emmy-nominated comedy writer R.J. Fried is serving as the showrunner. Is this the show the world needs right now or will it be just another short-lived That’s My Bush!? Our Cartoon President premieres on Sunday, February 11th at 8 pm; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    These bits have been funny on the show, but I am not sure they can carry an entire series. I do like that it is on Showtime though.
