Animated Short Video: Imagining Donald Trump's First 3 A.M. Phone Call as President

This satirical animated short imagines the early days of a Donald Trump presidency after he has defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign.

(Bear with me here.)

The Donald receives a late-night call from his Secretary of Defense, Chris Christie. (Yes, that one.)

North Korea has launched a missile at the United States. War and peace hang in the balance.

Oh, and Hillary has broken her post-campaign vow of silence and taken to Twitter in order to tell us what she really thinks of The Donald.

Find out how Mr. Trump responds to the first crises of his administration.
