Stephen Colbert, executive producer of the Showtime animated series.

On a sleepy Saturday here at the TV critics press tour, a day on which CBS presented more of its formulaic crime procedurals, Colbert arrived and injected some hilarity and savagery about the freaky political climate of the Trump era. "There is no escaping it. [Trump fatigue] is like having oxygen fatigue".

The first trailer for Stephen Colbert's Our Cartoon President is here.

The cartoon Trump character became a running feature on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" during the 2016 presidential election, making a number of return trips.

Executive produced by multiple Emmy® victor Stephen Colbert and his Late Show executive producer, Chris Licht, this hilarious new 10-episode parody will follow the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members.

Colbert has vaulted to the top of the late-night ratings with sharp, topical humour focused on the president. The 10-episode series debuts on the television network on February 11. "We're not putting a lot of animation time into Rex Tillerson".

Others have more staying power. But he's also going to take shots at those in his administration, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Colbert is so amped, so concentrated on jeering at Trump.

They may not always make it on the cartoon, but Colbert was up-to-the-minute in his comic references.

"He's the President of the United States".

About Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Michael Wolff's book published last Friday, he said, "I think Michael Wolff stole our first 10 episodes". 'The great thing about the Trump Administration is whatever you imagine, you're right'. "But I don't want to describe that as a good thing".
