Nikki Haley rips Grammys over ‘Fire and Fury’ segment

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley isn’t happy about a segment during the Grammy Awards that featured Hillary Clinton and other celebrities reading excerpts from the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it,” Haley tweeted on Sunday night. “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”

Earlier, Haley had responded to another Twitter user by saying the segment had “ruined” the awards show.

 

 

 

 

Clinton joined a host of music industry figures, including Cardi B and Snoop Dogg, during a segment in which they pretended to be auditioning to read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s controversial tell-all about the Trump administration.

During her appearance, which drew applause from the audience, Clinton read an excerpt about the president’s habit of eating McDonald’s. 

“He had a longtime fear about being poisoned — one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s. No one knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made,” read Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

Following her reading, Grammys host James Corden entered the scene, exclaiming, “That’s it — that’s the one!”

“You think so?” Clinton said. “The Grammy’s in the bag?”
