Melania Trump, by way of James Corden, just wants to be where the people are. The host of The Late Late Show transformed himself into the First Lady for a politically oriented riff on “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid.
“With Secret Service you don’t get too far/ Heels make it hard for jumpin’, escaping,” Corden’s Trump sings. “Fleeing along down a — what’s that word again? Street/ Out where they walk, out where they run, out where they don’t collude with Russians. Wandering free, wish I could be, part of that world.”
Accompanied by dancers and a few Russian performers, she pines for the day she can get “out of these quarters” and “spend a day with a grown man.”
“Betcha out there they understand that they can’t seduce their daughters,” she adds, referencing Donald Trump’s old comments about how “if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her.” This Trump continues, “But there’s women sick of him and ready to stand.”
Trump’s musical fantasy of leaving Washington, D.C., to return to her old life is interrupted, however, when the president calls out from the other room.
Watch the musical number above.
