Hillary Clinton is back in the spotlight, even if no one asked for her to be there.
The failed presidential candidate appeared on the Grammys Sunday night in a pre-taped sketch that read unflattering passages from the anti-Trump book.
The appearance was met with thunderous applause and cheers by the largely liberal audience.
Hillary Clinton’s surprise Trump-bashing cameo during the 60th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night caused at least a couple of viewers to switch channels, namely the president’s U.N. ambassador, and his oldest son.
Grammys host James Corden set up a pre-taped bit about who might take home next year’s spoken word gong.
“We know that our current president does love winning awards and the good news is he may just be the subject of next year’s winner [for Best Spoken Word Album],” Corden announced. “The question I’ve got is, who’ll be the narrator?”
Outspoken anti-Trump stars John Legend and Cher then auditioned to be the narrator for Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury” about Trump’s White House.
Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled and Cardi B also read excerpts from the book during the fake auditions.
Finally, Clinton read from the book and Corden declared, “That’s it! We’ve got it!”
Clinton said, “You think so? The Grammy’s in the bag?”
Corden replied, “In the bag!”
The segment resulted in wild applause from the star-studded crowd. But not all were pleased. United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the bit. However, the harshest words came from Donald Trump Jr.
