Comedy Central’s hit late-night series @midnight, which you can usually see trending on Twitter most weeknights, will be staging its own political debate tonight (March 23). The debate pits Donald Trump (played by Anthony Atamanuik) against Bernie Sanders (played by James Adomian). The two actors star in the comedy show Trump vs. Bernie: The Debate Tour 2016, which is currently on tour. The two “candidates” will field questions from the debate moderator, @midnight host Chris Hardwick. Being the interactive show that it is, it sounds like the episode will also field recorded questions from viewers who use the hashtag #MidnightDebate. It might be hard to outdo the craziness that has been happening on the real-world campaign trail, but you can rest assured @midnight and its fan base will try.
@midnight With Chris Hardwick: #MidnightDebate: Trump vs. Sanders airs March 23 at midnight ET on Comedy Central.
