It’s been almost a month since the debut of Stephen Colbert’s spoiled and obnoxious “Cartoon Trump” on The Late Show. Once again, Colbert unleashes his unapologetic animated mockery of Trump that is somehow even more peevish and absurd than the real thing.
This time around, the bombastic Cartoon Trump stopped by The Late Show to talk about his victory in New York, and what his plans are should there be a contested convention this July in Cleveland. The satirical Trump started off the interview by addressing Colbert’s audience proudly declaring,
Hello, New York, bow before me, you’ve made me your emperor,
Much like the real Trump, Cartoon Trump wasted no time in sticking it to his opponent, Ted Cruz, calling him “Dead Lose” and “The Walking Ted”.
As the segment went on, Cartoon Trump, always the shameless self-promoter, talked about his plan to spice up the boring state of American politics first commenting that,
Democracy’s a snoozefest, you gotta zazz it up. I’ve got glitz and glamour coming out of my razzmatazz-hole,
Cartoon Trump then went on to elaborate on his plan to “Zazz Up” Washington by adding:
First, I gold-plate the entire city of Cleveland, including the people. Then I ride in on a chariot pulled by showgirls dressed as Lady Liberty. And unlike the real statue, these girls are 10s! … Then I take my throne and announce my vice president, Optimus Prime. Together we will transform America to be great again, roll credits.
In response to Colbert’s questions about his strategy, should he not reach the much desired 1,237 delegates needed to lock up his presidential nomination and face a contested convention, where delegates may be open to bribes, Cartoon Trump assured the audience that no one out bribes Trump as he proclaimed:
Bring it! Nobody can beat me at toys! I’m talking jets, bouncy castles, all-you-can-eat shrimp.
While comedy, especially satire, is always a reflection of life, no one makes the ridiculous even more so than Colbert, and while I look forward to seeing more of “Cartoon Trump”, hopefully by this time next year Donald Trump, real or animated, will just be another faded memory in the annals of late-night television.
