James Corden watched Donald Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from the military very, very closely, ahead of his performance on the Late, Late show.
And boy, did he deliver.
Sporting a frock coat, walking stick and top hat, Corden launched himself into an hilariously sassy parody of the classic song “L-O-V-E”, with Trump as a target:
“L he doesn’t care for Lesbians.
G he thinks two men should just be friends,
B to his dumb knowledge is just a phase in college,
T he finds confusing so the army is now refusing
Trans women who only want to serve,
Trans men who want rights we all deserve.”
The host then wonders, with brilliant rhyming, how transgender’s disruption is “worse than Trump’s corruption” and why it’s such a crisis when thousands are “willing to fight Isis”.
Maybe Trump just wants everyone to see him “like a manly man” overcompensating for his “tiny hands”.
Well played, Corden.
