The series starred Peter Grosz as the show's announcer and co-host, while Anthony Atamanuik portrayed the titular character, President Donald Trump. The President Show also featured Adam Pally as a special correspondent.

The show aimed to spoof the real-life administration of President Trump by presenting a mock Oval Office and various political sketches.

Through his portrayal, Atamanuik poked fun at the President's politics, policies, and tweets.

The show was set up as a talk show format led by Atamanuik as Trump. In each episode, Atamanuik would sit behind a replica of the Resolute desk and address the audience as if he were the real President.

Audiences were treated to a tongue-in-cheek look at how national and international affairs would be if President Trump were in charge of managing them.

Pally often appeared in humorous skits that involved his investigation of White House staff or asking Trump supporters casual questions on the streets about their perspective on what was happening in politics. These segments employed intense humor and parody to poke fun at the current administration.

Although the show was primarily focused on comedy, it also had a political element.

The show included commentary on current events critical of the President and his administration. The program was praised for its ability to provoke conversations and mock the current state of American politics.

The President Show had several recurring segments, including "The Opposition," which was a segment featuring politically incorrect views on newsworthy topics. The show also had segments, including "Make America Great-A-Thon," which ran parody fundraising campaigns to help the President reenact his campaign promises. It's worth noting that these segments were meant to be satirical and often contained sexual, violent, and offensive conte.
