Showtime releases trailer for animated comedy series Our Cartoon President

Tim Luecke is lead animator and co-executive producer.

Showtime will stream an episode on January 28 that features the cartoon Trump preparing to deliver his State of the Union address. The show will then air weekly, starting February.

Still, Colbert continued, Trump is "president of the United States". His late-night ratings soared once he started using the president as his punching bag. That's what he means by, "I love my country more than I love a good joke". And that was about the only remark that wasn't sniping or snark.

And Colbert also joked about Michael Wolff's new book about the administration, "Fire and Fury", stealing material. "The great thing about the Trump Administration is whatever you imagine, you're right". Colbert and "Late Show" boss Chris Licht are EPs on the show, with R.J. Fried serving as showrunner. The series has been written to reflect the president's relationships within the White House.

Brace yourselves for a Twitter outburst, as Showtime has released the first trailer for its upcoming animated comedy series Our Cartoon President.

But Colbert says he's being careful to avoid out-of-date material.

That followed multiple reports of technical issues, which caused the drones to drop from the sky as they were flying. GoPro missed sales by 28.3 percent, cut 2018 guidance and announced a workforce reduction of more than 20 percent.

"We're not investing a lot of animation time into Rex Tillerson at this point", Colbert said. "If I didn't have the show, I'd be much more exhausted of the president".

The media, especially TV, will be prominent on Our Cartoon President. "It's about what's going on behind the doors of the most important house in the world". "And so does Trump!"

Although Trump-bashing has dominated much of the past year for Colbert, he doesn't complain - or worry - about suffering from so-called Trump fatigue. "That would be like oxygen fatigue".

Watching Colbert in person, there's an overcaffeinated quality to his humour, the constant barbs and ceaseless one-liners.

The show is produced by CBS Television Studios. His fodder is the odd way that Trump communicates. "I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"

"So does Trump", Colbert responded.
