The 2016 Tony Awards Bashes Donald Trump With 'The Book Of Moron' Parody & Mocks Hillary Clinton With 'The Clinton Line' Spoof!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPolitikDonald TrumpHillary ClintonTony AwardsHIGHlariousFunny

With such a controversial candidate as Donald Trump, it's no surprise that the 2016 Tony Awards decided to shade the scandalized star!

On Sunday, host James Corden revealed a new (fake) musical all about the Republican presidential hopeful, and it's aptly titled The Book of Moron!

LOLz! We couldn't have picked a better name for a show about the combover king!

The Book of Mormon spoof featured Andrew Rannells as the Donald himself, and his silly song is TOTALLY HIGHlarious!

But, of course, CBS couldn't mock the GOP candidate without taking a jab at the presumptive Democratic nominee as well.

So, the awards show enlisted Glenn Close to portray Hillary Clinton in a spoof of A Chorus Line titled The Clinton Line! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out the funny bit (above)!

This is definitely one of the most emotional parts of any award show. And the In Memoriam at the 2016 Tony Awards was no difference.

Stars like Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Patty Duke, and many more were all honored with this moving moment.

The Tonys certainly delivered something we'll all remember, just like we'll always remember these larger than life men and women.

Following his poignant sonnet, Lin-Manuel Miranda is making another strong statement about the Orlando massacre at this year's Tony Awards.

After two incredible introductions — from President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama and then Common — the Broadway star took the stage alongside his Hamilton castmates to perform a couple big numbers from their hit show.

Following a brief bit from Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story, the talented performers segued into Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down).

But, they shared a moving message during the second song.

While performing the tune about the Battle of Yorktown, the actors refused to use prop guns in the wake of the disastrous shooting at the gay nightclub in Florida that claimed the lives of at least 50 people and injured over 50 more.

The moment the cast stood on the stage, posing without weapons, was an incredibly powerful part of this amazing performance.

This was a truly emotional moment.

On Sunday, Lin-Manuel Miranda received the Tony Award for Best Original Score for his hit musical, Hamilton. But when he took the stage to give his acceptance speech, he delivered a powerful sonnet about the terrible tragedy that has rocked Orlando.

Admitting that he was "too old" to do another freestyle, the Broadway star instead delivered a tear-filled sonnet, in which he expressed his grief and sadness over the senseless shooting at PULSE nightclub that killed at least 50 people and injured over 50 more.

The In The Heights songsmith choked up honoring the victims of the horrific attack on the LGBT community, passionately repeating:

"Love is love."

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesR.I.P.Sad SadTony AwardsViolenceJames Corden

Sunday has been a particularly tough day, in light of the terrible tragedy in Orlando.

In New York City, James Corden opened the 2016 Tony Awards by taking a moment to honor the victims of the horrific nightclub shooting that claimed the lives of at least 50 people and injured dozens more.

Addressing the audience in a solemn speech, the Late Late Show host explained that the night's ceremony is dedicated to everyone affected by the horrible massacre, saying:

"Your tragedy is our tragedy."

He continued to encourage everyone watching to band together against the hatred that still exists against the LGBT community, adding:

"Hate will never win. Together we have to make sure of that."

The English actor donned a white ribbon on the lapel of his suit jacket, which the show created in remembrance of those who were senselessly killed in the truly awful act of violence.

But after that moving moment, the comedian worked to lighten the mood by putting on a funny opening montage.
