The popular topic of the evening among late-night hosts on Wednesday was the latest development in the ongoing saga between porn star Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump, and this latest bit of news made caused a (feigned) physical reaction of disgust from “Late Late Show” host James Corden a little sick.
As you may know, Trump is accused of having an affair with Daniels and then paid her ahead of the 2016 election to remain quiet about it. The story has been steadily growing, but this week it exploded when Daniels filed suit against Trump, claiming that the non-disclosure agreement between the two was “invalid” since Trump never signed it.
And, just to take this to a whole new level, Daniels’ suit contains the full details of the agreement. Of particular note is the part where it says that Daniels came into possession of “confidential information” in the form of text and photos. The widespread interpretation of that bit is that, well, there are nude pictures of Donald Trump floating around.
Naturally, Corden had some things to say about this Wednesday night.
“The hush agreement infers that Stormy Daniels may have confidential photos of Donald Trump. Which sounds like a threat. Not to him, but to the rest of us,” Corden said.
“If there are naked pictures of Donald Trump–,” Corden began before feigning a dry heave at the thought of such a thing.
“If there are naked pictures of Donald Trump–,” Corden tried, again and again, and dry-heaved several times, before pausing for about eight seconds during the delivery of his monologue before finally finishing the sentence. “They can go ahead and stay hushed.”
Corden then tried to get away from that topic as quickly as possible, moving on to a joke about Jared Kushner.
“Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to head up the United States’ delegation to meet with the Mexican president. When they heard Kushner was gonna visit, Mexico announced that they’re gonna go ahead and put that wall up themselves.
