At tonight’s Grammy Awards, music’s biggest stars – as well as Hillary Clinton – came together to land a brutal blow to a decidedly unpopular president.
John Legend, Cher, Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled, and Hillary joined together in a pre-recorded sketch in which each one read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s bombshell book, “Fire and Fury,” as the Grammys host, James Corden, “interviewed” celebrities to determine who could win the Grammy in the category of “Best Spoken Word Album.”
Nikki Haley, Trump’s UN Secretary, took to Twitter to complain about the infusion of politics into the musical awards show, oblivious to the fact that not only is music rife with politics, but her boss is a former reality show star obsessed with media and ratings.
I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.

In a moment of poetic justice, Corden selected who else but Hillary Clinton as the victor in the hilarious contest. A Grammy won’t take the place of the presidency, but it offers some sweet revenge on an insecure president who hates being humiliated above all else.
While Nikki Haley is an important member of Trump’s cabinet, the world isn’t holding its breath to hear her feelings about the Grammys. It wouldn’t be surprising, however, if she was directed to defend her insecure boss on Twitter per direct orders. Perhaps the Trump administration should focus on adding to its dismal list of accomplishments and turn the television off, for once.
