James Corden Just In Really Bad Taste Made Fun Of Bernie Sanders.....

He took on Sanders in his show opening monologue. Now I might just be too sensitive being a Bernie supporter - but I don't think a British citizen and not an American citizen - has a right to take down any American candidate for president. He doesn't even have a vote here. It's one thing if it's light-hearted - but I believe Corden's monologue was really demeaning and brutal and crossed the line.

James I like watching your show. I believe you are really a talented individual. I just think you went too far in this evenings monologue and I think you owe - not only Bernie and apology - but you owe his supporters and apology as well. When you become a citizen - like Craig Ferguson did - then maybe you have the privilege to make fun and be critical of U.S. presidential candidates. If you want to make fun of political figures - there's plenty of fun to be made of your own British politicians.

I know people here will want to know what Corden said - but I was so upset that I don't think I can do it justice trying to repeat it. I'm hoping that maybe tonight's monologue will be posted on his website -and if so - I'll let you know so you can view it and judge for yourself.

Maybe someone else here caught it and can help me out.

One thing I have to say is at least Bernie is being talked about now that he's showed that he's a serious threat to Hillary.

1. That is actually a good sign. That is what late nite comedians do, they make fun of politicians.

Unless it was about Bernie's religion?

3. even if it wasn't about his religion, it is past time to be engaged in discrediting him

in any mocking or dismissive way. Bernie deserves credit for his sincere and successful efforts.

I didn't see it, but I really am not attracted to Corden's type of hyperactive, shouting "comedy". He reminds me of Benny Hill.
