If you're a liberal, what's more fun than watching the liberal press trash conservatives seven days a week? How about watching the entertainment media mock conservatives for complaining about all this abuse?

CBS-owned Showtime has created a Trump-blasting cartoon called Our Cartoon President, reminiscent of that Li'l Bush cartoon bashing George W. Bush that Comedy Central made while he was in office.
