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.

Increasingly customers are looking for more conscious shopping options. According to a Nielsen survey in 2018, nearly half (48%) of U.S. consumers say they would definitely or probably change their consumption habits to reduce their impact on the environment.

But while many consumers are interested in spending their money on products that are more sustainable, few actually follow through. An article in the 2019 issue of Harvard Business Review revealed that 65% of consumers said they want to buy purpose-driven brands that advocate sustainability, but only about 26% actually do so. It's unclear where this intention gap comes from, but thankfully it's getting more convenient to shop sustainably from many of the retailers you already support.

Amazon recently introduced Climate Pledge Friendly, "a new program to help make it easy for customers to discover and shop for more sustainable products." When you're browsing Amazon, a Climate Pledge Friendly label will appear on more than 45,000 products to signify they have one or more different sustainability certifications which "help preserve the natural world, reducing the carbon footprint of shipments to customers," according to the online retailer.

In order to distinguish more sustainable products, the program partnered with a wide range of external certifications, including governmental agencies, non-profits, and independent laboratories, all of which have a focus on preserving the natural world.

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Welcometoterranova and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Welcometoterranova-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
