Benedict Cumberbatch Reads Corden Election-Themed Bedtime Story

Doctor Strange‘s Benedict Cumberbatch visited with James Corden on Monday, telling the Late Late Show host an epic tale about a lady in beige (Hillary Clinton) and a big orange monster (Donald Trump).

The fable, aptly titled “The Story of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election,” followed Clinton, “a lady who wanted to rule the kingdom very, very much,” on her journey through a scary forest with lots of computers filled with emails.

Though nearly defeated by an “old man with hair of white and a face like that of a wizard” (aka Bernie Sanders), her biggest opponent turned out to be a orange-tinted creature who had already defeated the likes of a “prince named Jeb,” “a sleeping beauty named Ben Carson” and “a Texas senator named Ted who came from a tea party.” By the end of the story, Corden was left fearing what the creature might do should he ever get his hands on his beloved stuffed pussycat.
