Last night’s Bruno Mars Appreciation Ceremony, er, the Grammy Awards was chock full o’ boring ballads, but one part kind of brought out the funnies and it was a skit involving musicians reading Fire And Fury (the book by Michael Wolff about all the allegedly crazy and stupid shit going down in Trump’s house). Everyone from Cher to Cardi B took turns reading about Trump’s love for McDonald’s and maniacal ways, but the “surprise” reader at the end was Hillary Clinton. Trump’s supporters naturally lost their minds seeing their favorite punching bag take time away from Cardi B’s gift of sound effects.
The skit involved James Corden pretending to host auditions for who would narrate the audio book for Fire And Fury, sure to be a Grammy winner (Hillary herself nabbed a Grammy in 1997 for Best Spoken Word Album for reading her book, It Takes A Village). John Legend is canned for being too “smoothe” (sigh…I was told the same when I wasn’t allowed on a Bear Cruise last summer in P-Town). Cher mocks his use of hair dye, Snoop Dogg craps on his lackluster inauguration, Cardi wonders why she’s even reading that shit, DJ Khaled adds horns and certainty that his reading is the best, and then it was Hillary’s turn. She explained his rationale for preferring fast food:
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned — one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s. No one knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made.”
Trump must not realize what the sodium in those fries does, because bloating is poison! And I don’t know what kind of McDonald’s he goes to. At the ones on my side of the tracks, nothing looks like it is safely made.
Here’s a very clear and flawless HD video of the skit:
The skit may have been in good fun, but some dusted off the megaphones they hadn’t screamed into since the Dixie Chicks shit on Bush, and they blasted the Grammy Awards for being too political.
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.

Your father doesn’t exactly make the job of president look all that fun, boo boo! I’d rather make bird calls with Cardi B over having to entertain Mitch McConnell. Trump will likely pretend that he didn’t watch the thing, but one thing that will catch his eye is that Deadline is reporting it was one of the lowest-watched Grammys in recent years. He’ll blame Hillary and the politics of it all, but we all know the real reason is the Beyhive doesn’t bother turn the TV on if Beyonce isn’t there to do a part-performance/part-Anne Geddes photo shoot on stage.
