James Corden, Abigail Spencer and Co. Star in 'Donald: The Musical' — Watch

At the risk of stealing Hamilton‘s thunder, James Corden unveiled his own musical about a certain polarizing politician on Monday’s Late Late Show.

Alongside Timeless star Abigail Spencer, Ben Platt of Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen and comedian Tim Minchin, Corden presented Donald: The Musical, a four-minute parody of POTUS and his White House staff. (Fun fact: The song being spoofed is “When I Grow Up” from the musical Matilda, for which Minchin wrote the music and lyrics.)

In the video above, Minchin plays a kid version of Trump, who can’t wait to get older and, among other things, “eliminate Obamacare, replace it with… well, I don’t care!”

Platt, Corden and Spencer join in respectively as press secretary Sean Spicer, chief White House strategist Steve Bannon and presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway — but by the end of their song, the gang realizes they might not be cut out for careers in Washington, after all.

Press PLAY on the video above to see Donald: The Musical in full, then hit the comments with your thoughts!

    Lol – except has #45 actually grown up. I guess in age but his mannerism is that of a 5 year old brat.

    That was so funny. Thank you James Corden and keep this humor coming, because we surely need it, knowing that the real people you are portraying are making us the laughing stock of the world.

    I knew all the guys had legit musical chops, but I’m really impressed by Abigail Spencer’s lovely singing voice – was not expecting that.
