James Corden Scorches Donald Trump With COVID-19 Parody Of Paul McCartney Song

“The Late Late Show” host hit the president with a reworked version of the Beatles singer's “Maybe I’m Amazed."

James Corden opened Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Late Show” with a musical dig at President Donald Trump.

The British host called out Trump’s failed response to the coronavirus pandemic — including his ongoing downplaying of COVID-19, even after being hospitalized for three days with the disease — with a reworked version of Beatles singer Paul McCartney’s 1970 hit “Maybe I’m Amazed.”

Corden used the song, retitled “Maybe I’m Immune,” to slam Trump’s disregard for science and his suggestion that the coronavirus could be treated by injecting disinfectant.
