Benedict Cumberbatch Reads James Corden A Terrifying Election Bedtime Story

Will the beige pant-suited woman defeat the big orange monster?

James Corden will be having nightmares.

Benedict Cumberbatch read “The Late Late Show” host a seriously scary bedtime story about the presidential election on Monday night.

Terrifying, right?

The tale centered on a beige pant-suited woman, otherwise known as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, walking through a dangerous forest. She had to fend off all kinds of creatures ― including trolls and the news fox.

She then encountered a big orange monster, aka her GOP rival Donald Trump.

But Cumberbatch couldn’t tell Corden, who played his petrified son in the spoof clip, whether there’d be a fairytale ending.

Find out how it ends in the clip above.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
