The 2018 Grammy Awards were held in New York City on Sunday night and, as you may have expected, there were a handful of moments from the star-studded show that got political.
In one of the most talked about moments of the night, Cardi B, Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled and John Legend were among a group of celebrities who came together for a dramatic reading of the book “Fire and Fury,” which took a look inside of a chaotic first year for the Trump administration.
But what really set the troll job of Donald Trump over the edge was the special appearance at the end: none other than Hillary Clinton.
Clinton capped off the segment by reading her excerpt and the crowd went wild.

Of course, not everyone was pleased by the skit.
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, took to Twitter to voice her displeasure with the comedic routine.
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.

Donald Trump Jr. also chimed in, throwing around the “Fake News” tagline and saying that Hillary Clinton reading a book for a comedic skit somehow shows America made the right choice.
“Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency,” Trump Jr. wrote. “The more Hillary goes on television the more the American people realize how awesome it is to have @realDonaldTrump in office.”
While those close to Trump may not have been pleased, everyone else seemed to enjoy it, so we’ll have to say that it was a hit.
