Michael Bolton Singing Excerpts From John Bolton's 'The Room Where It Happened' on 'Late Show'? Sure, Why Not?

Michael Bolton

Call it the Battle of the Bolton. Or Maybe Bolton Squared. Either way, on Wednesday night (June 24), The Late Show invited crooner Michael Bolton on to sing excerpts from the new White House tell-all The Room Where It Happened by former National Security Advisor John Bolton and the results were... hilarious. But also terrifying.

In a bit they called "Bolton Sings Bolton," the legendarily coiffed singer emoted such pop classic lines as "Trump begged President Xi to buy soybeans/ To help him win re-election" over tasteful acoustic guitar. Among the other smash hits on the fake Audible collection are: "Trump formed a pattern of fundamentally unacceptable behavior/ That eroded the very legitimacy of the presidency."

And who could forget that summertime banger, "Pompeo sent me a note about Trump/ That said, 'he's so full of s--t.'"

Check out the clip below.
