Donald Trump Jr., Nikki Haley rip into Hillary Clinton’s surprise Grammys appearance
They didn’t find the skit humorous.
Clinton joined other entertainers like Snoop Dogg and Cher in reading a line or two from the book. Specifically, Clinton read a line about Trump’s affinity for McDonald‘s because he has a long-standing fear of being poisoned.
While the joke surely drew some laughs, members of President Donald Trump’s administration and his family apparently didn’t appreciate the humorous skit.
I disagree. That part ruined the Grammys. Such a shame.— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) January 29, 2018
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.— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) January 29, 2018
But Haley wasn’t the only one within Trump’s orbit who thought the Fire & Fury skit wasn’t funny.
Donald Trump Jr. weighed in, declaring that reading a “#fakenews book excerpt” was a “great consolation prize for losing the presidency.”
Those two weren’t the only took issue; across the board, conservatives were bothered by the anti-Trump tone of the show.
These award shows are a perfect example of how out of touch the celebrity elite are with the average American. While they are mocking Donald Trump, he is busy working for the American people and winning for the AMERICAN people. #Grammys— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) January 29, 2018
Interesting how at the #GRAMMYs @HillaryClinton read out of the idiotic book #FireAndFury a title that was plagiarized by #MichaelWolff, I think it would be fair if @realDonaldTrump read some of the 30,000 deleted emails that was on her server at the #SOTU, what say you?— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) January 29, 2018
But both Trump. Jr and Haley have some specific not-so-pleasant feelings about Fire & Fury.
In the book former White House adviser Steve Bannon called Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in 2016 “treasonous” and said Special Counsel Robert Mueller would “crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” Bannon’s comments led to a very public falling out with the Trump administration.
As for Haley, the book has led to rumors that she was having an affair with Trump—something she called “highly offensive” and “disgusting” during a recent interview with Politico.
