WATCH: Stephen Colbert’s Frightening Retelling of Donald Trump’s Path to the Presidency

Though watching the polls last night was an agonizing and terrifying experience for many Americans, nothing was perhaps more frightening as Stephen Colbert’s “true story” about how Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States.

During his live Election Night special on Showtime, the comedian gave fans an animated retelling of how the former The Apprentice host started his political career. Dubbed “Trump Begins: The Dawn of the Donald” and stylized to be a The Dark Knight-esque origin story, the segment alleged everything first started when President Barack Obama cracked a few jokes at the businessman’s expense during the 2011 White House Correspondent Dinner.

Fast forward to today, we now have someone who once bragged about using his celebrity status to grab women “by the pussy” going into the Oval Office. Thanks, America!
