Comedy Central’s “The President Show” To Poke Fun At President With Trump Impersonator

In a press release out yesterday, Comedy Central dropped a preview of their new weekly show, “The President Show.” Featuring comedian Anthony Atamanuik, heralded as the best Trump impersonator around, in the role of President Trump, the release claims it will throw out the rule book, just as our commander in chief is throwing out his predecessor’s rulebook.

New late night show “The President Show” will make fun of Trump by just being honest about who he is.

Is it scary or hilarious that you wouldn’t be surprised if our president said these things? Many comedians and TV producers have expressed how difficult they have found it to make fun of Trump, because his comments and scandals are outlandish beyond their abilities.

Even Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the hilarious duo behind the last twenty seasons of “South Park,” said it’s tough to make fun of Trump .

Parker: “It’s really tricky now, uh, because satire has become reality.”

Parker and Stone, who made Mr. Garrison into a fusion of Trump and Darth Vader — the most villainous villain of all time — claimed to be having a hard time making fun of Trump.

It’s not the first time Comedy Central released a show created to mock a sitting president.

Released in April of 2001, the show had already been cancelled by the time 9/11 occured later that year. Although cancelled for financial reasons, show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker knew it would have been in poor taste in a post-9/11 world.

Comedy Central made a second attempt to launch a show about George W. Bush, but it seemed to come too little, too late.

However, “The President Show” launches only four months into Trumps presidency, so there may be plenty of years of laughs in store.

QuiBi, short for Quick Bits, is a new streaming app. The platform offers people small, digestible videos that are 10 minutes long offering people something to watch while in line or waiting for an appointment. Now, Latinos can get their own unique comedy fix while out and about.

The show is something that will give Latinos a chance to see themselves and their families represented.

We have all been on the receiving end of some very awkward conversations with our parents. It is something that all of us have had to deal with and no matter how many conversations you have, they don’t get any easier. This video of a dad telling his son about sex is just too accurate for 2020. There is so much that parents just don’t know and it is clear that they can use a lesson from time to time.

It really is nice to see a Latino man running a sketch comedy show giving us all of the jajajas we can handle.

All hail the true OG.

This OG sketch is probably one of the best from the “Alternatino” list. What exactly makes someone an OG? If using a rotary phone, battling polio, and riding a horse for transportation aren’t OG, what is? Like, that is some of the most OG stuff around. Imagine being able to survive all of that and still be around to tell the tale. That’s some OG stuff right there.

Comedy Central is still involved in a partnership with QuiBi.

“I’m so thrilled that I get to keep my partnership with Comedy Central while adding this exciting new platform to the team,” Castro wrote in an Instagram post. “I’m so glad we have the opportunity to keep talking about the things that matter to us and to make y’all laugh along the way.”

QuiBi fell short of their original viewership projections claiming that COVID-19 is the problem.

The app, which cost $1.8 billion to launch, is experiencing a rough start. Projections from QuiBi were that they would have 7 million active users and $250 million in revenue. Instead, The New York Times reports that QuiBi has been downloaded by 2.9 million users and 1.3 million have become active users. QuiBi would say the download number is closer to 3.5 million.

QuiBi fell out of the top 50 downloaded apps on iPhone one week after it was launched. It is currently #125 on the iTunes chart.

“I attribute everything that has gone wrong to coronavirus,” Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of QuiBi, told The New York Times. “Everything. But we own it.”

Katzenberg added: “Is it the avalanche of people that we wanted and were going for out of launch? The answer is no. It’s not up to what we wanted. It’s not close to what we wanted.”

Given another shot, Katzenberg would have handled the launch of QuiBi differently.

While Katzenberg regrets the lackluster start to the app, he tells The New York Times that there is enough money being generated that he doesn’t regret it. The $1.8 billion raised to start the short form media app was raised between Chinese company Alibaba and Hollywood.

Prince Harry And Meghan Officially Say Goodbye To Royal Life And Clapback at Donald Trump’s Attacks

Come and gone so soon.

When Meghan Markle became part of the British Royal family in 2018, we good apples were excited to see how the former “Suits” actress would shake-up the stuffy monarchy. Sadly, after an onslaught of racial and other colorless attacks on Markle, the family made the decision to take a step back from the limelight announcing that they would become “financially independent” in early 2020.

Today marks the first day of Prince Harry as one of us normals and the return of Meghan Markle.

Earlier this year in January, Harry and Meghan announced that they would be taking a step back from royal life and become “financially independent,” sharing their desire to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution” in an Instagram post.

In response to rumors that Meghan and Harry might be moving to the states, Donald Trump took the time to peek up from the coronavirus pandemic to comment.

“I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!” Trump tweeted.

Ahead of their official ‘goodbye’, the two released a statement made on Monday seemingly in response to this statement.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would prefer that in the immediate weeks and months, the focus remains on the global response to Covid-19,” a Sussex spokesperson said according to CNN. “However, we recognize there are outstanding questions relating to their future beyond their Household transition deadline.”


The statement came just days after United States president, Donald Trump tweeted that the United States would not pay to protect Prince Harry and his wife Meghan when they move to the states. So that’s that.
