It was only a matter of time before President Donald Trump started cranking out more laughable content than late-night TV could handle.

Hardly two months into Trump's presidency, writers have been working overtime on spoofs, parodies and satire. Comedy Central is about to double down.

On Thursday, the network sent out a cryptic press release that seemed to hint at a new half-hour show featuring only Trump-related content. The release was branded with the presidential seal and read, "Late night TV is broken. A TOTAL DISASTER. I alone can fix it," seemingly in the style of the president's erratic Twitter feed. It also included a link to a Twitter handle for The President Show.

The Twitter bio for The President Show reads, "#1 show on television, many many millions of viewers. Hosted by @LateNightDonald. Bringing AMERICAN JOBS back to late night."

The @LateNightDonald account is also active, with tweets dating back about a week that seem to spoof things Trump says intermixed with disses of existing late-night TV.


Clearly, this show is going to be hosted by a Trump impersonator, something the real Trump is sure to love. But is it possible to fill a nightly lineup with jabs at just one politician? Actually, thinking back on how the first couple of months have gone for Trump, yes. Yes, it is.
