Meet The Cast of “Our Cartoon President”

Our Cartoon President

In February 2018, Showtime premiered its new satirical animation, Our Cartoon President. Developed by Stephen Colbert, R. Fried, Tim Luecke, Chris Licht, and Matt Lapin, the animation began life as a bit-piece on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show before being commissioned for its own series in July 2017. Set in various Washington D.C. locations, the series puts the life of Donald Trump, Melania, and the various cohorts and confidants surrounding them under the microscope. Its second season premiered on May 12, 2019, and has proved just as popular a send-up of Trump’s administration as the first. Read on to find out more about the animation’s ensemble cast.
