Even the Grammys snuck in a dig at President Trump.
In a prerecorded video, host James Corden brought in celebrity guests to read from one of the biggest books of the year, Michael Wolff’s tell-all “Fire and Fury.”
“In fact, every year, the Recording Academy has honored the best spoken word album. And over the years, the award has gone to some of the world’s most inspiring voices. Bill Clinton has won a Grammy. Barack Obama has won a Grammy. Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Al gore all have Grammys,” Corden said.
“We know that our current President does love winning awards and the good news for him is he may just be the subject of next year’s winner. The question I’ve got is, who will be the narrator.”
John Legend, Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B and DJ Khaled took turns reading passages from “Fire and Fury” before Corden brought in a pro: former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned. One reason why he likes to eat at McDonald’s. Nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” Clinton read to the praise of Corden.
“That’s it. We’ve got it. That is the one,” he said.
“You think so?” she responded.
“Oh yeah. The Grammy is in the bag,” Corden said.

Nikki Haley, the ambassador to the United Nations, took to Twitter to express her disappointment in the gag.
“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the ‘Fire and Fury’ book killed it,” she tweeted. “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
Donald Trump Jr. also pushed back against the video.
“Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency,” he tweeted.
