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 uses TikTok to offer 'dinner with dad' to any kid that needs one, even adult ones

Summer Clayton is the father of 2.4 million kids and he couldn’t be more proud.

Come for the food, stay for the wholesomeness.

Summer Clayton is the father of 2.4 million kids and he couldn’t be more proud. His TikTok channel is dedicated to giving people intimate conversations they might long to have with their own father, but can’t. The most popular is his “Dinner With Dad” segment.

The concept is simple: Clayton, aka Dad, always sets down two plates of food. He always tells you what’s for dinner. He always blesses the food. He always checks in with how you’re doing.

I stress the stability here, because as someone who grew up with a less-than-stable relationship with their parents, it stood out immediately. I found myself breathing a sigh of relief at Clayton’s consistency. I also noticed the immediate emotional connection created just by being asked, “How was your day?” According to relationship coach and couples counselor Don Olund, these two elements—stability and connection—are fundamental cravings that children have of their parents. Perhaps we never really stop needing it from them.

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy asked his Senate colleagues the questions millions of Americans have after a mass shooting.

Another school shooting. Another mass murder of innocent children. They were elementary school kids this time. There were 18 children killed—so far—this time.

The fact that I can say "this time" is enraging, but that's the routine nature of mass shootings in the U.S. It happened in Texas this time. At least three adults were killed this time. The shooter was a teenager this time.

The details this time may be different than the last time and the time before that, and the time before that, and the time before that. But there's one thing all mass shootings have in common. No, it's not mental illness. It's not racism or misogyny or religious extremism. It's not bad parenting or violent video games or lack of religion.

Some of those things have been factors in some shootings, but the single common denominator in every mass shooting is guns. That's not a secret. It's not controversial. It's fact. The only thing all mass shootings have in common is guns.

Meet Eva, the hero dog who risked her life saving her owner from a mountain lion

Wilson had been walking down a path with Eva when a mountain lion suddenly appeared.

A sweet face and fierce loyalty: Belgian Malinois defends owner.

The Belgian Malinois is a special breed of dog. It's highly intelligent, extremely athletic and needs a ton of interaction. While these attributes make the Belgian Malinois the perfect dog for police and military work, they can be a bit of a handful as a typical pet.

As Belgian Malinois owner Erin Wilson jokingly told NPR, they’re basically "a German shepherd on steroids or crack or cocaine.”

It was her Malinois Eva’s natural drive, however, that ended up saving Wilson’s life.

According to a news release from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Wilson had been walking down a path with Eva slightly ahead of her when a mountain lion suddenly appeared and swiped Wilson across the left shoulder. She quickly yelled Eva’s name and the dog’s instincts kicked in immediately. Eva rushed in to defend her owner.

It wasn’t long, though, before the mountain lion won the upper hand, much to Wilson’s horror.

She told TODAY, “They fought for a couple seconds, and then I heard her start crying. That’s when the cat latched on to her skull.”
