Late Late Show host James Corden visited The White House to stand-in for some of President Joe Biden's staff for a "Take A Break" segment.

"I've come down to the White House to get to the heart of American politics and see if anybody working in here could use a well-earned break," says Corden at the beginning of the clip.

"I'll spend my day cooking for the staff at the White House, I'll be taking over as his press officer, and I will, of course, make sure the president stays on schedule."

The segment, which aired on Thursday, featured cameos from Biden, who at one point turns to the camera asking, "Who is that guy? … What the hell is 'The Late Late Show?'"
