Stephen Colbert's Cartoon Trump Is Getting His Own Show This Fall

This fall, Stephen Colbert will be offering an exclusive glimpse inside the two-dimentional administration of cartoon Trump. The 'Late Show' host recently announced that the cartoon commander-in-chief that periodically appears on his program will be getting his own series on Showtime.

The series will use the faux-documentary style of shows like 'The Office' and 'Modern Family' to go inside the cartoon president's inner sanctum and get candid reactions from caricatures of Trump's real-life confidants and friends. 

"I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I'm honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world," Colbert said when announcing the show. "I've seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA."

According to a press release, the show promises to "present the truish adventures of Trump’s confidants and bon vivants – family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros and anyone else straying into his orbit – intrepidly exploring their histories and their psyches, revealing insights into what makes them so definitively Trumpian."

And to keep the material lively and relevant, the production team plans to keep a tight schedule so that episodes will reflect the actual goings-on of the Trump White House.

Here's a taste of what's in store this September.


Some try to predict the future by reading tea leaves, but Bill Maher turned to a different type of leaf to figure out who would be the ultimate candidate for the 2020 election. The 'Real Time' host recently revealed that the ideal candidate dawned on him one night when he was having a puff of weed and wondering who had the best chance to defeat Donald Trump in 2020. Like many pundits, Maher has obsessed over this question ever since Trump's surprise win over Hilary Clinton in 2016.
