The Late Late Show with James Corden
In a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this morning, Donald Trump told world leaders that the U.N. needs to reform itself because it’s ineffective due to bureaucracy and mismanagement. And for the first time, every nation on Earth had a reason to come together: to roll their eyes at Donald Trump.
President Trump told the United Nations to reform itself, citing mismanagement. Then the United Nations told President Trump to reform himself, citing mismanagement.
On Sunday, Donald Trump tweeted about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying, “I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. I asked him how ‘Rocket Man’ is doing.” President Trump, you’ve already ruined enough; don’t ruin Elton John lyrics for us.
Next thing you know, he’ll be calling the prime minister of Australia Crocodile Rock.
A thousand bucks says Trump called him Rocket Man because he couldn’t remember the name of North Korea’s leader. Do you know what I mean? He’s like, “Oh hey, there you are, how is it going — Rocket Man? My Rocket Man buddy."
Last night here in Los Angeles was the prime-time Emmy Awards. The big winners last night were Donald Glover, Hulu, and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Spicer won best actor in a comedy for his role in Donald Trump’s administration.
I’m kidding, of course! But Sean Spicer actually did make a cameo at last night’s ceremony and according to some reports, at the after party Spicer was the post popular guy in the room. And I just want to say, I think people are forgetting that this man lied to the American people, and should not be embraced. These Hollywood phonies kissing up to Sean Spicer are disgusting. I mean who did this, who are we talking about here? [shows photo of himself kissing Spicer]
Now I know you think that is a picture of me kissing Sean Spicer. But in the spirit of Sean Spicer: no, it isn’t.
Anyone ever have that feeling when you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think, “Oh God, who did I kiss last night?” It’s a bit like that. Understandably, some people have been disappointed by this photo. In truth I’m disappointed by it as well. I have been reading a lot of harsh comments on Twitter today and I hear you loud and clear, truly I do. So much so I’m really starting to regret that Carpool Karaoke that we’ve taped with Steve Bannon. Feels like a mistake today.
