Michelle Obama to lead female celebrity dodgeball team in 'Late Late Show' face-off



Former first lady Michele Obama will lead a celebrity dodgeball team in an international face-off on CBS's "The Late Late Show" next week, host James Corden said.

Obama’s all-female American team will include Melissa McCarthy, Allison Janney, Mila Kunis, Lena Waithe and Kate Hudson, according to Corden. The late-night host added that he will lead an all-male team, mostly from the United Kingdom, including Harry Styles, Benedict Cumberbatch, "Game of Thrones" star John Bradley and "Late Late Show" bandleader Reggie Watts.

Corden teased the dodgeball game on Twitter, sharing a photo and tagging the stars.

1. Sounds fun!

I love that the Obama's are out and about showcasing their intelligence, popularity, great personalities, and healthy physiques. I hope this drives the Oval Office Usurper totally crazy. He can't stop them

3. Oh.

I was hoping it would be a match against, say, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Kellyanne Conway, and some other women from the Trump administration. Who wouldn't pay to see Michele Obama deliver a facial to Sarah?

10. Throw in Melania, Stephen Miller and, perhaps, a Senator or Representive (Cruz, Nunes, Turtle).

So many options!

9. All six of those women will be BRUTAL!

I'm glad I won't have to ever oppose them. I actually think Michelle and Melissa will be the most fierce of the lot.

12. But doesn't she know that dodgeball is brutal and oppressive?

Dodgeball is a tool of ‘oppression’ used to ‘dehumanize’ others, researchers argue

One of gym classes’ most common games is being used as a tool of “oppression,” according to a team of Canadian researchers.

Dodgeball in phys-ed classes teaches students to dehumanize and harm their peers, professors from three Canadian universities said in a presentation this week at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Vancouver. A paper on the subject is set to appear in the journal European Physical Education Review.

“When you’re setting up the environment for students to learn, and you introduce the idea that it’s okay to slam the ball at whomever you like, even if it’s with a soft ball, the intention is there,” Joy Butler, a professor who studies pedagogy and curriculum development at University of British Columbia, said in a phone interview.

“When students think it’s okay because they’re being told it’s okay to do that, what do they learn? People say [dodgeball] is being used as an outlet for aggression or catharsis. I suspect that this is where they’re learning that.
