Allow Benedict Cumberbatch to Read You (and James Corden) a Bedtime Story About the 2016 Presidential Election

The saga of the 2016 U.S. presidential election might not sound like a great bedtime story for the youths  c’mon, Peter Rabbit is the clear winner here but Benedict Cumberbatch still wants to tell them the tale of a beige-clad lady who set out on a perilous journey to a beautiful, white house. Along the way she gets lost in a scary forest filled with computers, trolls, a “news fox,” and a big orange monster, sending James Corden into a scared frenzy. How will the story end? Only time and a few stressful shots of tequila will tell.
