Presidential waste of time

If you think you have nothing better to do... Watch this show. After it's over, you will think of plenty of things you could have done, but wasted your time having watched garbage like this show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This predictable series offers lots of silly schtick and jokes aimed at President Trump, most of which fail to offer any insightful humor. Atamanuik's impressions are well-done, even when compared with Alec Baldwin's successful Trump parodies on SNL. But the jokes feel old, and listening to them quickly gets tiresome.

There are a few moments of thoughtful commentary here and there. But The President Show lacks the sharp writing necessary for creating smart and edgy political satire that popular shows such as The Colbert Report, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, or Last Week Tonight with John Oliver are known for. Nonetheless, some folks may be amused by it.
