Watch Denis Leary and James Corden Sing "Trump's an A------"

Denis Leary adapted his signature song to be about Trump

Liam Mathews

James Corden's Late Late Show is best known for light-hearted, celebrity-kissing bits like Carpool Karaoke, a segment whose most recent guest was First Lady Michelle Obama. At the time, Obama's appearance seemed relatively apolitical, but after Wednesday's Late Late Show, Corden's political leanings are pretty clear.

Let's just say we probably won't see Melania Trump do Carpool Karaoke anytime soon.

Corden's guest, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll star Denis Leary, has had a long, successful career as an actor and producer, but he's still perhaps best known for his 1993 comedy song "A------," which sends up the average American jerk. On Wednesday's Late Late Show, he and Corden debuted a new version of the song, where he plays Bill Clinton and Corden plays Hillary Clinton as they list the myriad ways in which Hillary's presidential opponent, Donald Trump, is an a------.

There's a long digression about the nonsensical hypocrisy of being able to say "ass" and "hole" but not "a------" on TV, but it's mostly pretty focused on listing Trump's various moral failings, up to and including fighting with a baby.

They make a point to acknowledge the Clintons' failings, of which there are many, but as Leary-as-Clinton notes, "we've never said Mexicans are rapists on TV."
