Tony Awards take aim at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

James Corden Was All About Diversity At The Tonys

The Tony Awards fired shots at both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on Sunday night -- and drew laughs from the crowd with on-point parodies of famous musicals.

James Corden first introduced "Book of Mormon" star Andrew Rannells as Donald Trump in "Book of Moron" ... get it?

"Hello, my name is Donald Trump, and I'd like to build a wall that goes right through your house," Rannells sang in the classic sing-song tune from the hit Tony-winning musical.

The fun didn't stop there. Next up was Hillary Clinton. Glenn Close took the stage as the presumptive Democratic nominee in "A Clinton Line," a play off the classic show, "A Chorus Line."

"I really need this job. Oh God, I need this job. I've got to get this job," Close sang.
