Our Cartoon President trailer

Our Cartoon President trailer

Executive produced by Stephen Colbert and showrunner R.J. Fried, the half-hour comedy series takes us inside the White House for a satirical look at the Trump Administration.

Stephen Colbert is about to make even more of a mockery of President Donald Trump than he already has with his new animated series "Our Cartoon President".

The trailer comedically bills Our Cartoon President as "the highest rated show of all time", and covers numerous well-known players in the Trump administration.

"Our Cartoon President", which previews on January 28 before it premieres on February 11, tells narrative stories about Trump and his family presented as if a documentary crew was in the White House. Tim Luecke will serve as lead animator and co-executive producer. The 2-minute trailer introduces the cast of characters - from Trump's cabinet ("Woo Hoo") to his sons ("Remember when everyone said you were the dumbest person in the world and then we showed up on TV") and his wife Melania ("Why are you looking at me, there is a TV in the room") to Ted Cruz ("I'm Ted Cruz!").

While the late-night show finds comedy out of day-to-day news, "Our Cartoon President" seeks to develop characters of the president, his family and administration figures.

Probably the most shocking thing about "The Late Show" host's newest project is how similar it is to real life; far from it being an exaggerated parody of politics, it turns out a lot of their comedic assumptions were right. I don't want to describe that as a good thing. Look out for the Trump Twitter rant after it airs...

"They're very much a part of the White House, we believe", Fried said. His fodder is the unusual way that Trump communicates.

Exactly what he means is unclear.
