James Corden tells 60 minutes that the Trump administration ‘isn’t even politics’

James Corden has told 60 Minutes that the Trump administration ‘isn’t even politics’ and that he considers the current US political landscape to be ‘good versus evil’.

The Late Late Show host slammed the US President in a CBS News interview, describing the state of American politics as the difference between ‘right and wrong’. 

In September, Trump fired off tweets stoking a conspiracy theory that President-elect Joe Biden was reading his responses from a teleprompter during an interview with James Corden in April – even after the show’s producer debunked the claim.

Speaking to CBS host Bill Whitaker, Corden, 42, said:  ‘I will say that as time’s gone on, as we’ve been living under this administration, I don’t even consider it to be politics.

‘I consider it to be right and wrong. I consider it to be good versus evil.’

He continued: ‘We are more than comfortable talking about anything. We also feel like we’re an entertainment show. 

‘Our primary concern is to just try and make you laugh somehow. That’s really what we love to do. And– I’ll really stop at nothing to try. It may not always work. But I’ll give it my best shot, you know.’

Corden also spoke candidly about how he had been bullied at school in the UK because of his weight.

He revealed that he used comedy and his humour to combat the bullying. 

The comedian, who grew up in Hillingdon, near London, said: ‘I don’t look back at my time at school. 

‘I was bullied because of my size in truth that’s probably where all that faux confidence comes from. It was all a defence mechanism of like, well, I’ll be the biggest target in the room. 

‘Bullies don’t like that. Confidence is like kryptonite to bullies.  

Corden, who has hosted the Late Late Show since 2015, has been delivering the show during the coronavirus pandemic – and is filming it under strict Covid-19 protocols. 

He revealed that it’s changed everything about how they perform and deliver the show. 

For years, Corden has invited scores of celebrities - from Adele to Harry Styles - to join him in his car to take part in Carpool Karaoke. The star said the beauty of it is that you get an 'intimacy' with the celebrity guests that is unusual.

He said: ‘We like to think of it as being about scale, about size and getting out of the studio and running out into the road and shooting big sketches, big numbers, big ambition. And obviously those things are very difficult at this moment.

‘With no audience and fewer guests on the couch, Corden’s more than made do, first doing the show from his garage and now back in the studio, easily riffing with his band and on this occasion, this reporter to witness the process, warts and all.’

He said: ‘The core of it really isn’t the songs. The core of it is the intimacy of the interview. That these are some of the most famous people on Planet Earth. 

‘You know, the biggest singers in the world and they’re in an– environment which is completely humanizing.’  

Asked whether he has a favourite interview in the Carpool Kareoke, Corden revealed: ‘Well, there’s so many. I mean, doing it with Paul McCartney will probably take some beating from me personally. It was just a day I’ll never, ever forget.’
