Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Cher, Cardi B, and DJ Khaled read passages from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House during the 2018 Grammys Sunday night. The real star of the performance, however, was a surprise cameo from Hillary Clinton.

“Trump won’t read anything. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored,” John Legend read, kicking off the video.

During Cardi B’s portion of the performance, she couldn’t stay in character.

“Why am I reading this shit?” she asked. “Is this really how he lives his life?”

And DJ Khaled personalized his lines, dropping in “another one” as air horns played in the background.

“One reason why he liked to eat at McDonalds: Nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” Clinton read.

While some viewers on Twitter loved the joke, others felt it only perpetuated the fact that award shows have become more politically polarizing than ever.


Nikki Haley—United States Ambassador to the United Nations—tweeted that she did not approve of the Fire and Fury bit. That’s probably because she was accused of having an affair with President Donald Trump in the book.

“Is the Grammy in the bag?” Clinton asked when she finished reading.

We think so.
