James Corden mocks Trump's White House return with Paul McCartney parody: 'Maybe I'm Immune'

James Corden mocks Trump's White House return with Paul McCartney parody: 'Maybe I'm Immune'
via The Late Late Show with James Corden

"The Late Late Show" host James Corden took a shot at President Trump's erratic behavior after his COVID-19 diagnosis with a parody of Paul McCartney's 1970 hit, "Maybe I'm Amazed" on Tuesday night.

"Maybe I'm Immune" is based on Trump's statement after returning to the White House from the hospital on Monday night when he wondered, "Maybe I'm immune?"

The song is funny but it also highlights Corden's beautiful Elton John-esque singing voice and solid piano skills.


The song is intercut with clips of Trump's doctor, Sean Conley's questionable attempts to suggest the president was in good health after being diagnosed with a deadly virus. It also features a clip of Trump speculating that the virus could be cured by injecting bleach.

The end of the song touches on the president's "immunity" to the fact that he's trailing Joe Biden substantially in the polls. On Monday, a CNN poll came out showing Biden with a 16-point lead among likely voters.

On Wednesday, a Rasmussen poll came out saying that Biden has a 12-point lead over Trump. Rasmussen has traditionally been seen as a conservative-leaning polls.

Lyrics to "Maybe I'm Immune"

Maybe I'm immune 'cause today I'm feeling so alive

Just don't be afraid of the way I'm breathing

Maybe I'm immune, it's okay to go out for a ride, with others trapped inside

Maybe you're immune to the lies my doctors tell you

Maybe I'm a man and maybe I don't wear a mask because I don't care about others

Science, I don't really understand

Maybe I'm a man and maybe I'm just high from this experimental cocktail

Maybe I just need some oxygen

Maybe I'm immune to the ways the polls are looking now

Maybe I'm afraid it's not fake news

Maybe I'm immune to all the lies that I have made, I shouldn't have downplayed

Maybe I'm afraid of the way that I might lose this

Maybe on November 3 I just might lose this

"Maybe I'm Amazed" is notable for being Paul McCartney's first big solo hit after leaving The Beatles in 1970. The song was the second to last track on his first solo album, "McCartney" in which Paul played every instrument alongside vocal contributions from his wife, Linda.

The album has been back in the press recently after rumors that McCartney is looking to release "McCartney III" at the end of the year. It would be the third album in McCartney's catalog where he plays the instruments by himself. "McCartney II" was released in 1980.

Man lists 8 not fun, but very important things you need to start doing as an adult.

"Welcome to being an adult. Maybe you weren't told this by your parents, but this is through my trial and error."

8 things you should be doing as an adult. Spoiler alert—none of them are fun.

Who among us hasn’t come into full adulthood wishing they had known certain things that could have made life so so so much easier in the long run? Choices that, if made, ultimately would have been much better for our well-being…not to mention our wallets.

But then again that is all part of growing older and (hopefully) wiser. However there is something to be said about getting advice from those who’ve been there, rather than learning the hard way every single time.

Thankfully, a man who goes by @johnfluenzer on TikTok has a great list of things young people should start doing once they become adults. Are any of his suggestions fun, cool or trendy? Not at all. But they are most definitely accurate. Just ask any 30+-year-olds who wished they had done at least four of these things.

Men and the feels.


Note: This an excerpt is from Sarah Cooper's book, How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings.

In this fast-paced business world, female leaders need to make sure they're not perceived as pushy, aggressive, or competent.

One way to do that is to alter your leadership style to account for the fragile male ego.

Doorbell camera catches boy's rant about mom's chicken

When you're a kid you rarely have a lot of say in what you get to eat for dinner. The adult in your house is the one that gets to decide and you have to eat whatever they put on your plate. But one little boy is simply tired of eating chicken and he doesn't care who knows it. Well, he cares if his mom knows.

Lacy Marie uploaded a video from her doorbell camera to TikTok her son. The little boy is caught on camera taking the trash out venting about always having to eat chicken. He rants all the way to the trash can, being sure to get it out of his system before he makes it back into the house.

"Chicken. No more chicken. Tell me you like, we have chicken every day. Eat this, eat that, eat more chicken, keep eating it," the 10-year-old complains. "It's healthy for you. Like, we get it. We have chicken every day."

"It was all his idea."

An offhand suggestion from her boyfriend of two years coupled with her own lifelong love of comic strips like "Calvin and Hobbes" and "Get Fuzzy" gave 22-year-old Catana Chetwynd the push she needed to start drawing an illustrated series about long-term relationships.

Specifically, her own relationship.

My wife surprised her coworkers when she came out as trans. Then they surprised her.

She was ready for one reaction but was greeted with a beautiful response.

Society, pay attention. This is important.

My wife, Zoe, is transgender. She came out to us — the kids and me — last summer and then slowly spread her beautiful feminine wings with extended family, friends, and neighbors.

A little coming out here, a little coming out there — you know how it is.

It started with a simple, sincere question from a mother of an 11-year-old boy.

An anonymous mother posted a question to Quora, a website where people can ask questions and other people can answer them. This mother wrote:

How do I tell my wonderful 11 year old son, (in a way that won't tear him down), that the way he has started talking to me (disrespectfully) makes me not want to be around him (I've already told him the bad attitude is unacceptable)?

It's a familiar scenario for those of us who have raised kids into the teen years. Our sweet, snuggly little kids turn into moody middle schoolers seemingly overnight, and sometimes we're left reeling trying to figure out how to handle their sensitive-yet-insensitive selves.
