Watch ‘Cartoon Trump’ Dismiss Presidential Debate Dates on ‘Colbert’

Animated candidate livid about scheduling conflicts with pre-season hockey, Billy Idol concert

“Cartoon Donald Trump” ticked off several very legitimate scheduling conflicts that would necessitate scratching all of his presidential debates with Hillary Clinton on The Late Show Monday.

In an interview on ABC’s This Week Sunday, the actual Trump suggested it was unfair that two of the presidential debates were being held at the same time as primetime football games. He even claimed that the NFL had sent him a letter expressing their displeasure about the conflict as well — though the NFL denied the claim.

“Cartoon Trump” was equally incensed about the scheduling, and even chastised Stephen Colbert for having him on at the same time as Rizzoli and Isles. While Colbert noted that the other debates would not compete with football games, “Trump” fired back that one was up against a pre-season NHL game – and it was Liev Schreiber’s birthday.

The other date in question was even “more important to America,” “Trump” said: “Billy Idol live at the Vegas House of Blues. ‘It’s a bad day for a de-bating.’ One of his lesser known hits.”

Donald Trump asked the mother of a crying baby to leave his rally during a speech on Tuesday. Watch here.
