The Late Late Show host James Corden

Screen shot from YouTube

James Corden isn't hyper-attuned to politics like a Kimmel or Colbert, but the charming Late Late Show host just can't any more with Donald Trump.

And unlike those two late-night comics, Corden is a triple threat. He's not only a devastating wit, but he can write a lyric -- and he can really sing. Don't be too shocked if the Grammy host gets his own nomination.

"Maybe I'm Immune" is his parody tribute to Paul McCartney's classic "Maybe I'm Amazed." With its burns of Trump, Trump's doctor, Trump endangering his Secret Service detail, and Trump staring at dismal poll numbers, Corden's version gives new meaning to the old "torch song." Maybe now it's a scorch song.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
