What If Donald Trump And His Inner Circle Were Characters In Matilda?
James Corden, Ben Platt, Tim Minchin, and Abigail Spencer parody the popular musical.


When Matilda the Musical writer Tim Minchin visited The Late Late Show, James Corden didn't let an opportunity to parody the popular musical pass him by. The show recast the characters of Matilda and her friends with Donald Trump and three of his friends as children.

Tim as Trump and James as Steve Bannon were joined in the sketch by Ben Platt as Sean Spicer and Abigail Spencer as Kellyanne Conway. Watch the video above and follow along with the lyrics below.

“WHEN I GROW UP”

DONALD TRUMP:
When I grow up,
I will be President and build a big wall,
Ban Muslims with racist travel laws,
Be Russia’s puppet, when I’m a grown up.

SEAN SPICER:
And when I grow up,
I’ll be Press Secretary and stand behind,
A podium and tell you lies
About crowd size, when I’m a grown up.

STEVE BANNON:
And when I grow up,
I will be Chief Strategist,
Even though we’ll know that I,
Make all decisions for that guy.
(Points to Trump)

KELLYANNE CONWAY:
And I will wake up,
And see tweets he wrote at 4
AM, that I will then have to defend,

TOGETHER:
But I won't care, 'cause I’ll be all grown up.

When I grow up...
When I grow up...
When I grow up...

DONALD TRUMP:
I’ll eliminate Obamacare,
Leave 24 million in despair.
And grab p*****s! When I’m a grown-up.

TOGETHER:
And when I grow up, when I grow up

SEAN SPICER:
I will be brave enough to pick a fight with,
Buzzfeed and the New York Times, they’re
Both fake news -- but I’m a grown up.

TOGETHER:
When I grow up...
When I grow up...

KELLYANNE CONWAY:
I’ll be on TV each day
And I’ll make up alternative facts
About your microwave.

STEVE BANNON:
And I will start up,
A racist news website,
Where Nazis and all of the alt-right
Can spread their hate, ‘cause I’ll be grown up

When I grow up...
When I grow up...

DONALD TRUMP:
Just because you find that I’m unfair, it
Doesn’t matter much to me ‘cause, I don’t care, it,
Seems as if I can do whatever I dare, it’s
Gonna be huge

When I grow up...
When I grow up...

TOGETHER:
Just because I find myself in this story,
In the next election you can, change it for me.
If you think the ending is fixed already,
You might as well be saying,
You think that we’re OK,

And that’s not right!
And if it’s not right!
You have to set it right!

TOGETHER:
Nobody else is gonna put it right for me,
Nobody but us is gonna change this story,
Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty!
