Just a day after delivering a cold open that blasted Donald Trump’s response to his COVID-19 diagnosis during a weekend-long stay at Walter Reed Medical Center, The Late Late Show host James Corden once again called out the president for his comments and behavior following his return to the White House on Monday night in a biting musical parody.
Sung to the tune of Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed,” Corden sat behind a piano during Tuesday night’s show as he ran through a list of quips and jabs about Trump and his pandemic response in a song titled, “Baby, I’m Immune.” The two-minute segment kicked off with a clip of the president talking about his experience at Walter Reed and thanking the hospital staff for his care before declaring that he’d learned “so much about coronavirus” during his stay.
“And I know there’s a risk, there’s a danger, but that’s OK. And now I’m better, and maybe I’m immune, I don’t know,” Trump said before Corden launched into singing, “Maybe I’m immune cause today I’m feeling so alive, just don’t be afraid of the way I’m breathing.”
Beyond acknowledging the viral footage of the president standing outside the White House and seemingly gasping for air during a photo op Monday night, Corden also took on the president’s experimental treatments, his decision to ride around the medical center with his Secret Service agents inside the car, and the upcoming presidential election Nov. 3.
Interspersed between Corden’s musical roast of Trump were clips of Trump and the president’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, giving statements during his stay at Walter Reed.
“Maybe you’re immune to the lies my doctors tell you,” Corden at one point croons.
