‘Our Cartoon President': Trump Fights Mike Pence Dressed Up as Coronavirus (Exclusive Video)

The Wrap Wednesday, 9 September 2020
Showtime’s “Our Cartoon President” returns with new episodes of its third season this Sunday and TheWrap has an exclusive sneak peek at the premiere.

In the video, which you can view above, Cartoon President Trump (“Beastman Trump, the White Blade,” as he puts it) attempts to fight off the coronavirus with a flaming sword.

Now, this is all part of an elaborate stage play that Trump has forced Melania Trump, Mike Pence, Sean Hannity and Rudy Giuliani to help him put on so that he can pretend to have defeated the pandemic.

“Time to end this once and for all! Show yourself coronavirus!” Trump yells, as Melania — who is tied up and texting — apathetically cries for help.

The “coronavirus,” which is really just Mike Pence dressed up to look like the novel coronavirus.

“Any last words Melania?” he says to the first lady.

Nah, she’s good.

Here’s the description for the upcoming batch of “Our Cartoon President” episodes, executive produced by Stephen Colbert, R.J. Fried and Chris Licht, which count as the back half of Season 3:

“Our Cartoon President” sets its sights on the most consequential election in history to determine who will be the next Cartoon President. Can Cartoon Joe Biden overcome his frequent gaffes and basement isolation to unseat Cartoon President Trump, who’s struggling to win re-election? Season three ended in March of this year with nine episodes and will conclude with the final nine half-hour episodes tied to the 2020 Presidential election.

Joining the cartoon universe will be Cartoons Dr. Jill Biden, Hunter Biden, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Biden’s soon-be-announced running mate. Also among the D.C. insiders will be Cartoons Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Kayleigh McEnany, OAN’s Chanel Rion and Anthony Weiner. All three high-stakes presidential debates will be covered in topical cold opens that will be written, animated and broadcast in a matter of hours. Among the talent behind the scenes will be Colbert, Tim Robinson, Emily Lynne, James Adomian, Jen Spyra, Gabriel Gundacker, William Sadler, Iman Crosson, Matt Rogers, Anna Drezen, Griffin Newman and Jeff Bergman.

This season will also feature other Cartoon players: Don Jr. and Eric Trump teaming with Elon Musk and MyPillow’s Mike Lindell to invent a coronavirus cure, Susan Collins escaping with Brett Kavanaugh to Maine to avoid answering whether she’ll vote for Trump and CNN’s Chris Cuomo fighting to be a serious journalist to the chagrin of his older brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“Our Cartoon President” returns this Sunday, Sept. 13 at 8:30/7:30c on Showtime.
