Corden regularly roasts Trump on his late-night show, making headlines in October for mocking the president's response to the coronavirus pandemic with a parody of Paul McCartney's 1970 hit, "Maybe I'm Amazed," called "Maybe I'm Immune."

In his interview with "60 Minutes" correspondent Bill Whitaker, the CBS host said his show is "more than comfortable talking about anything."

"We also feel like we're an entertainment show," Corden noted. "Our primary concern is to just try and make you laugh somehow. That's really what we love to do," he said with a chuckle. "And I'll really stop at nothing to try. It may not always work, but I'll give it my best shot, you know?"
