James Corden told his "Late, Late Show" audience that President Donald Trump is now the nation’s leader and urged the news media to can all the Russian probe stuff and instead focus on Trump’s actions.

The late show host made the comments on Tuesday while talking about an under-reported story that six members of the 18 members of the president's advisory on HIV and AIDS resigned in protest last week and charged in a letter that the president didn’t care about issues surrounding the disease, according to Deadline.com.

"There was a lot of talk about this Russia investigation," Corden said, followed by clips of  anchors on all the major news channels and even his own opening monologue talking about the probe.

"I get why this is dominating the news. Democrats are hoping that this is what gets Donald Trump impeached. Republicans, some Republicans, secretly are hoping this is what gets Donald Trump impeached. The thing is, in all the bluster, and the noise, and all the stuff and these stories, it is still important to remember that he is still president of the United States and it is still his job to take action on issues."

Nate Silver, editor-in-chief of FiveThirtyEight.com, made a similar point in March about the saturated coverage of the Russian probe.

"I'd say that it's obviously a worthy subject for reporting. But there definitely is more smoke than fire so far and there's been some tendency for claims to be overdrawn," Silver said in a website chat. "As I wrote last month, these stories tend to die if they don't provide specifics — and often they don't."

Earlier this month, a national poll by the Investor's Business Daily of 903 adults, taken from May 30 to June 6, strongly suggested that many Americans see the current Russian investigation into alleged Trump campaign ties to Russian government officials as largely political and driven by sensational media coverage.

"The American people perceive that, in the court of the media, Trump is guilty until proven innocent," Raghavan Mayur, president of TechnoMetrica, who directed the IBD/TIPP Poll, told Investor's Business Daily. "Since the election, the media have persistently questioned the president's legitimacy on various fronts, from Michigan's close vote count and Russian interference to Trump's mental capacity, and, presently, alleged collusion with Russia."
