Since being inaugurated in January 2017, President Donald Trump has been highly critical of the media and what he refers to as "fake news." In this late-night series, a fictional version of the president decides to bypass the mainstream media and address Americans himself by hosting this weekly show directly from the Oval Office. "The President Show" has all of the segments of a traditional late-night talk show — desk segments, field pieces and guest interviews — but they come from President Trump's unique viewpoint. Vice President Mike Pence (portrayed by actor Peter Grosz) serves as the president's sidekick. Comedian Anthony Atamanuik, who created the show, stars as President Trump.
