It took until nearly the end of the 70th Annual Tony Awards for the dystopian reality that is the 2016 election to get a shoutout, but host James Corden wasn't about to let the presumptive Republican and Democratic nominees off scot-free. 

Andrew Rannells, who originated the role of Elder Price in "The Book of Mormon," tweaked his character slightly for "The Book of Moron," starring none other than Donald Trump.

Instead of ringing doorbells to spread the word of Joseph Smith, musical Trump wanted to spread his message about -- you guessed it -- building a wall through your house. He also managed to convey how we feel about this election cycle with a single grimace. 

None other than three-time Tony nominee Glenn Close took on the role of our potential first-ever female president, starring in "A Clinton Line." 

"I really need this job," Close-as-Hillary-Clinton sang. "Oh, god, I need this job." 

Earlier in the night, Clinton received a shoutout from Jake Gyllenhaal while introducing the nominees for Best Featured Actress in a musical. "As Hillary Clinton showed us this week, women can do anything," he said. 

If that includes making this whole choosing-a-president process feel any shorter, we're down.
