Stephen Colbert hasn't held back when it comes to Donald Trump's disaster of a presidency so far, even "interviewing" a cartoon depiction of Trump in the past. Showtime was clearly a fan of his cartoon version of Trump, because the network commissioned an animated series that follows the adventures of Colbert's version of the president.
Before the show hits its digital platforms later this month, Showtime has released the first trailer for series. Titled Our Cartoon President, the series is set to follow President Trump in a "parallel cartoon universe." The show promises an "all access" look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States, Donald Trump."
The trailer for the show is very goofy, but Trump's bizarre mannerisms are depicted quite faithfully. All of Trump's administration (and Ted Cruz) makes an appearance in the trailer, too. "Remember when everyone said you were the dumbest person in the world then we showed up on TV and they were like 'we spoke too soon,'" says Donald Jr at another point. There's also a quick jab at Fox News right at the end of the trailer, offering a tease of just how much the series is committed.
Our Cartoon President will premiere February 11 on Showtime, but the first episode will be available early on Showtime's digital platform on January 28
