You didn’t think the Grammy’s would be broadcast without some sort of political drama, did you? CNN reports that Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance just to troll the President of the United States. (For those still unable to face reality, our President is Donald Trump… not Hillary.) Anyway, her little skit took aim at the President. Nothing like a sore loser, amirite?
The former presidential candidate, along with Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, John Legend and DJ Khaled were among those who read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” the hit book about Trump’s first year in the White House. The bit shows Grammy host James Corden holding auditions for the book reading in hopes of nabbing next year’s best spoken word album with famous musicians trying out for the coveted role.

These celebrities and their political preening… Will it ever end? I can’t even imagine what this did for the book sales of Fire and Fury… not that it needed any help:
“Fire and Fury” has sold 1.7 million copies, according to publisher Henry Holt & Co. The book has had remarkable staying power. It held onto the No. 1 spot on Amazon’s best selling books list for almost the entire month of January. Over the weekend, it slipped to No. 2 — but the Grammys may give it another shot of publicity.
I guess they’re really happy to give that book more press. Can you imagine them ever doing that for a conservative book?
