President Trump gets his own Comedy Central show

Donald Trump has landed his own Comedy Central show… in the guise of an impressionist.

Comedian Anthony Atamanuik will portray POTUS in a weekly new late-night show called The President Show.

It will feature fake Trump ‘bypassing the crooked media by hosting a late-night show direct from the Oval Office’.

The broadcaster says it will mean ‘no unfair questions from reporters, no awkward photo ops with German ladies, and no bedtimes. Just a fun show where he can put his unique Trumpian spin on such late-night staples as desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews.’

Atamanuik said: ‘Laughing at the President is a proud American tradition and we hope not to disappoint anyone in that department.

‘But our political system is too broken for us to be content joking about one man, even though he is a disastrous silly little toddler boy. Mostly I’d just like to thank Comedy Central for giving us this platform to speak truth to power and if we’re lucky, end up in prison!’

In a trailer for the show in the guise of The Donald, Atamanuik,  said: ‘Comedy Central begged me to do this show. Failing Comedy Central begged me And I would get incredible ratings. Some of the best ratings. Huge ratings. Great ratings.’

The President Show will air on Comedy Central in the States from  April 27. No news yet on whether it will be picked up in the UK.
