Stephen Colbert Gives Donald Trump His Very Own Hamilton Spinoff

“The only president who can complain about the theater is Abraham Lincoln,” Stephen Colbert declares, before launching into “Donald Trump,” the titular number in the imagined Hamilton-esque musical Trump. Maybe a show about himself will resolve the president-elect’s ongoing feud with the Great White Way? And with lines like “Back to make America great / Hannity? Truckasaurus? Who wants Secretary of State?,” maybe Trump will get some new cabinet suggestions. After all, Truckasaurus has a ton of relevant experience, plus with any luck, he’ll just crush everyone with his giant tires and metal jaws. It’s a win-win.
