United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley showed some of her own fire and fury after Hillary Clinton and numerous celebrities read parts of a tell-all book critical of the Trump administration at the Grammy Awards.
“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it,” Haley wrote on Twitter late Sunday in the course of the show. “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
President Trump’s son Donald Jr. also lashed out at Clinton on Twitter.
“Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency. #GrammyAwards,” he wrote Sunday.
Clinton, Snoop Dogg, Cher and DJ Khaled had been among the many celebrities who took part in a segment showing them auditioning to read “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” and the possibility to win a Grammy next year for greatest spoken word album.
Clinton read an excerpt of Michael Wolff’s best-seller about why Trump eats at McDonald’s.
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” Clinton read.
Following her reading, Grammy host James Cordon appeared to say, “That’s it. That’s the one.”
“You think so?” Clinton replied. “The Grammy’s in the bag.”
