Hamilton may tell the story of the election of 1800, but the election of 2016 may be making its way to Broadway soon, too.

During the Tony Awards on Sunday night, host James Corden introduced a hilarious bit previewing two new (“new”) Broadway musicals centering on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. First, Book of Mormon star (and former Hamilton King George) Andrew Rannells took the stage as Donald Trump, previewing his new musical Book of Moron.

“Hello, my name is Donald Trump,” Rannells sang to the tune of the Book of Mormon opening number. “And I would like to build a wall that goes straight through your house.”


Corden then introduced Glenn Close as Hillary Clinton in A Clinton Line, singing, “I really need this job.”
