Apparently everyone watches the Grammys, Trump and Nikki Haley are no exception.

The 60th Grammy Awards had its up and downs, with some fans even feeling that certain performances fell flat. Sting x Shaggy? They’ll probably be a meme for that soon enough. However, hosts James Corden’s Best Spoken Word Album skit apparently ruffled some feathers down in Washington, D.C. In the star studded sketch that ranged from Cardi B. and DJ Khaled to avid Trump criticizers such as Snoop Dogg.


Corden’s Sketch involved various celebrities reading Michael Wolff’s controversial book, “Fire and Fury” vying for the coveted chance to be the official voice on the narrative track. At first it seems like it would be the typical gaff that would be seen on his late night show with each celebrity putting their particular spin on reading the best seller. With John Legend being asked to stop for being too smooth, to DJ Khaled turning the experience into his trade drops with full on DJ horns and drops. Cardi B even got in on the action with a seemly candid moment asking (about the president), “is this how he lives his life?” The culmination of the skit ends with Hillary Clinton asking if if the Grammy is in the bag after her rendition, showing revenge is a dish best served cold.

The Full Sketch can be seen here:

However, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley wasn’t here for the jab at the presidency. In a tweeted clap back which is normal for this administration the, the current ambassador exclaimed how much she loves the grammys but politics shouldn’t be a part of it.

The ambassador tweeted, “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.”

President Trump’s son also weighed in, in a similar fashion about the Grammy sketch. Donald Trump Jr. fired off a tweet referring to the popular book as fake news. He also used the opportunity take a jab at Hillary Clinton and her presidential loss at the hands of his father..

Nonetheless, viewers on Twitter seemed seemed to back James Corden’s sketch with their own tweets commenting on the hilarious readings by Cher, John Legend, Cardi B, etc.
