"Is it because his views are archaic and he's made offensive comments about slavery and Hitler?"

James Corden didn't pull any punches on Friday evening's Late Late Show. In his opening monologue, Corden mocked presidential candidate Ben Carson for saying he was "suspending" his campaign while he was going on a book tour for two weeks. A campaign aide later said the campaign was in fact continuing, but it didn't stop the actor and comedian from his sarcastic slams of Carson and his recent comments about .... well.... everything.

"You're probably thinking," Corden began, "is it because his views are archaic and he's made offensive comments about slavery and Hitler? No. It isn't that. The reason is, he's going on a book tour. Chapter one: How to Lose a Presidential Campaign," Corden said to audience applause and laughter.

"I mean, this is ridiculous," he continued. "You should suspend your campaign because you keep saying crazy things! Not because you wrote those crazy things down!"

Corden refuses to buy a copy of Carson's new book if his writing is anything like his speaking and rolled a clip of Carson in an interview with CNN. "Chapter One," Corden began a hilarious impression of Carson. "I was born .... in a .... small.... town.... outside ..... .... .... Detroit."
