Hillary Clinton was in the spotlight during the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Clinton’s fun cameo intended to criticize Donald Trump. In the video, Clinton reads a passage of the controversial book “Fire and Fury.”
White House spokesman Raj Shah said Clinton’s cameo appearance had to be dismissed and that he doesn’t take it seriously when politicians unite forces with celebrities. Last night, during the Grammy Awards ceremony, many stars sent messages of criticism towards the new administration in the White House.
“When I see Hillary Clinton and other liberal politicians join forces with celebrities or try to show America how in touch they are, I don’t take it all that seriously,” said Shah. “You know, the left and the elite centers of America are frankly out of touch with what’s going on in this country and all the great work that this president is doing. And I wouldn’t take a whole lot of what you see on a Sunday night Grammy appearance by celebrities attacking president all that seriously.”
Trump was heavily criticized during the Grammy Awards
On Sunday, artists and celebrities made it clear – one more time – they are not fond of Mr. Donald Trump. The president and his rhetoric were criticized by many artists during their speeches. However, nobody imagined that Hillary Clinton would also join forces against Trump.
Grammy host James Corden said to the audience that everyone knew Donald Trump loves winning awards and ironically said that he might just win next year for “best-spoken word album.” However, he wondered who would be the narrator and some celebrities, including John Legend and Cher, appeared in a video audition to be the narrator for Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury.”
That is when Clinton appeared in a video also pretending to audition for the narrator role for the audiobook of Michel Wolff’s famous book, which became very controversial since it criticizes Donald Trump as a president. Trump said the book is all lies. Other artists such as Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled, and Cardi B read sections of the book too.
Hillary Clinton reads a section where Wolff writes that Trump prefers McDonald’s fast food because he has a longstanding fear of being poisoned.
The segment was a success among the attendees. However, it was not pleasant for all the people, especially for Trump and U.S representative to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
White House spokesman Raj Shah also said on Monday that he doesn’t know if the president watched the show, but that he wouldn’t take these comments from celebrities and politicians seriously. However, Trump did watch the show, and of course, he quickly responded to Hillary’s cameo on Twitter by saying:
“Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency”. He also twitted the following: “The more Hillary goes on television the more the American people realize how awesome it is to have @realDonaldTrump in office #GrammyAwards2018”
As well, Nikki Haley sarcastically made fun of Hillary Clinton by saying that she has “always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash.”
According to Grammy Executive Producer, Ken Ehrlich, getting Clinton to accept wasn’t that hard, though he credited Corden for closing the deal. Apparently, Clinton took a couple of days to say “yes” but she read the script, and she liked what they were up to.
Clinton recorded her part of the segment near her home on Friday. Ehrlich said they knew some would criticize the video but he stated that they all stand for what they did.
Camila Cabello send a message to the so-called ‘dreamers’
Besides Clinton’s appearance in the Grammy’s, one of the most remarkable moments of the ceremony occurred when singer Camila Cabello spoke in favor of the legal protection for the Dreamers. There are about 700.000 dreamers that could be deported because of Trump.
Cabello, who is a Cuban-Mexican immigrant brought to the United States as a child, said that the country was built by dreamers and for dreamers. She introduced the rock band U-2, who pre-recorded a performance of their song “Get Out of your own way” in the in the New York harbor with the Statue of Liberty in the back.
As well, Singer Janelle Monae addressed women’s rights during her introductory speech for Kesha’s performance of the song “Praying.” Kesha accused her former producer of sexual assault, and although the charges were dropped, Kesha’s song refers to her battle. During her performance, several women were singing in the background.
