In a surprise appearance during the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined a host of prominent music-industry figures to skewer President Trump in a blistering mock Grammys audition to narrate the best-selling book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
“He had a longtime fear of 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,” Clinton read.
Following her reading, Grammys host James Corden entered the scene, exclaiming, “That’s it — that’s the one!”
“You think so?” Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, replied with a smile. “The Grammy’s in the bag?” she said.
“Trump won’t read anything,” John Legend, a frequent Trump critic, said in the sketch. “He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored.”
“His combover: the color was a product called Just for Men,” Cher, another fierce Trump opponent, read. “The longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange/blond hair color.”
The “Gin and Juice” rapper paused before saying to the camera and said, “I definitely wasn’t there.”
Cardi B then read another passage from the New York Times best-seller: “If Trump is not having his 6:30 dinner with Steve Bannon then more to his liking he was in bed with a cheeseburger.”
Rapper Snoop Dogg offered his interpretation of another portion of the book, saying, “Trump did not enjoy his own inauguration. He started to get angry and hurt that stars were determined to embarrass him.”
The outspoken “Bodak Yellow” rapper then added, “Why am I even reading this s–t? I can’t believe this. This is how he lives his life?”
Trump has called the controversial tell-all about his administration “fiction” and its author, Michael Wolff, a “fraud.”
