James Corden sends Trump 297 copies of ‘Philadelphia’ after 6 members quit his HIV/AIDS council

"Maybe that's the problem. Maybe Donald Trump doesn't care because he's never seen Philadelphia."

Everyone is talking about Russia. It’s the biggest story of the year as most Democrats (and some Republicans) want it to spell the end of Trump’s presidency. However, in the meantime, other important Trump stories seem to go by the wayside. But there is one that James Corden will not let the president forget.

On Tuesday’s Late Late ShowJames Corden reacted to news that six members of Trump’s HIV/AIDS council resigned because the president “simply does not care” about the epidemic.

“He’s shown he doesn’t care by taking down the Office of National AIDS Policies website on the day that he took office,” Corden explained. “He’s refused to appoint anyone to lead that office, and he’s proposed changes to healthcare, which, if they were to happen, they would devastate all marginalized Americans who are living with HIV and AIDS.”

Corden then admitted that he first started to learn and care about HIV and AIDS after watching Philadelphia, which stars Tom Hanks as a lawyer who sues for discrimination after he is fired for having HIV.

“Maybe that’s the problem. Maybe Donald Trump doesn’t care because he’s never seen Philadelphia.” So Corden made an effort to educate him, by sending him every copy of the film he could find.
