The bit began by host James Corden predicting the bestselling look "Inside the Trump White House" would be next year's spoken word winner, and so he was auditioning narrators. Clinton was the last of the celebrity readers, after John Legend, Cardi B, DJ Khaled, Snoop Dogg and Cher, reading out a segment about Trump's alleged fast food habits and poison fears.
The president didn't respond Sunday night, but others in his administration did, with eldest son Don Jr. saying that Clinton's appearance "seems like a great consolation prize." Also responding was UN ambassador Nikki Haley, who tweeted that the moment "ruined the Grammys."
Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency. #GrammyAwards
President Trump has not tweeted since early Sunday morning, so his reaction may yet be forthcoming. In his stead, though, plenty of supporters on both sides of the political spectrum came out for and against Clinton's cameo appearance. As usual, the moment did nothing to ease tensions on either side, instead entrenching them deeper into their respective ideologies. Below are some of their loudest voices.
CBS made a major mistake allowing Hillary Clinton to bash President Trump during a skit on The Grammys. Satire is one thing, stark partisanship is another matter, a serious matter for a network that is supposed to broadcast fairly. No Spin analysis on https://t.co/fqUvO5EEW0.
Next time a liberal talks about Trump being "unpresidential" point to Hillary this last weekend, first with her "bitches supporting bitches" video, then her insults-for-yuks against the president at the Grammys. Stay classy, Hillary.
The balls on this witch. Hillary literally has an entire continent who wants her locked up and hanged for treason, and yet her and that other cringeworthy ilk can mock a sitting president on a music award show? What planet are we on⁉️😡
Can I just say I've never seen a sorer loser than Hillary Clinton? My God. This has been going on for OVER A YEAR now. OVER. A. YEAR. Knitting little things & vacationing w/the family aren't options? I mean... Ew. Just... EW. What a HORRIBLE example she's set for "the village."
Hillary Clinton reading a book at the Grammys really triggered Trump world!! Don Jr, Nikki Haley and Fox Friends were all so angry they lashed out. Awww, poor snowflakes!! Every time we piss off a Trump supporter an angel gets their wings!
Really, Paulo? HILLARY is embarrassing herself? What about the people who won the election and embarrass themselves and US on a daily basis? I don't see you speaking out against them. But by all means, go off on a private citizen who was having a bit of cheeky fun.
