Grammys skit poking fun at Donald Trump sparks backlash

New York – A Grammys drama poking fun at US President Donald Trump started a reaction on Twitter from Trump’s eldest child and the ambassador to the United Nations.

In carefree political discourse amid the music industry greatest award show on Sunday, host James Corden presented a video of well known names recounting from the questionable book, Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House.

Distributed early this month and composed by Michael Wolff, the moment hit paints Trump as separated, badly educated and unstable.

The video that was screened during The Grammy’s 2018 shows artists John Legend, Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, and DJ Khaled perusing short selections from the book, and now and then contributing their own remarks.

“I definitely wasn’t there,” Snoop Dogg said after reading a passage about Trump’s inauguration.

Cardi B quoted a line referring to Trump in bed with a cheeseburger.

“I can’t believe this,” she said.


Trump has called it a “Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author.”

The Grammy video ends with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic challenger who lost to Trump in the bitter 2016 election, quoting the book as saying Trump liked to eat at McDonald’s.

“The Grammy’s in the bag,” Clinton quips about her performance, which prompted Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr to respond on Twitter: “Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency.”


He added that the more Clinton appears on TV “the more the American people realise how awesome it is to have @realDonaldTrump in office.”


Trump’s UN ambassador, Nikki Haley, left Clinton alone but said the musicians had struck a sour note.

“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it,” she said on Twitter.

“Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
