OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT ADDRESSES THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS’ ASSOCIATION DINNER

Washington, DC – April 28, 2018OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT was honored to address the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner this evening. In a special segment that aired at tonight’s event, the SHOWTIME® animated series took center stage as the “Cartoon President” addressed honorees and attendees representing the White House press corps.

Returning with new episodes this summer, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT is executive produced by multiple Emmy® winner Stephen Colbert, Late Show executive producer Chris Licht and showrunner R.J. Fried. The animated series follows the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members.

OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and his most important relationships, and no one is safe – from his close family and confidants to key political figures from both parties and members of the media. In this parallel cartoon universe, the Commander-in-Chief opens the White House doors for an “all access” look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States. The series has introduced audiences to cartoon Trump’s attempts at “winning” the State of the Union address, comforting disaster victims and rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments, as well as his co-dependent relationship with the media. OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT is produced by CBS Television Studios. Tim Luecke serves as lead animator and co-executive producer. Matt Lappin serves as consulting producer.
