Showtime's new animated series features an orange-tinted POTUS (voiced by the man behind Bugs Bunny) along with a surprising cast of cartoon politicos.

According to Showtime's animated look at the White House, a few of Cartoon President Trump's first orders of business this year are "winning" the State of the Union, teaching NFL star Colin Kaepernick a lesson ... and naming Melania the new national bird.
Our Cartoon President, which debuted Sunday on Showtime, features President Trump, his First Lady and several members of his administration as animated, over-the-top versions of themselves, including a timid Karen Pence, turtle-like Mitch McConnell, and "three white people on a couch," Fox & Friends.
"Each and every one of you voted for me, and the ones who didn't, you kind of wanted to see what would happen," Trump says to the camera, opening the show. "And it's happening more than you could have imagined!"
The series, from The Late Show's Stephen Colbert and Chris Licht, "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," according to the network.
The first episode follows Trump as he attempts to "win the State of the frickin' Union" while also avoiding his wedding anniversary and winning back the approval of Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade.
Trump's voice counterpart on the show also happens to be the voice of Bugs Bunny, and several David Letterman writers have also made it to the series. The list of the rest of the surprising voice cast is below.
