Ambassador Haley Was Pretty Disgusted 'Fire and Fury' Excerpts Were Shared at the Grammys

In case you missed the Grammy awards last night, you didn't miss much music. When Bruno Mars wasn't accepting nearly every single award, artists were sharing their political views. Camilo Cabelo made an appeal for Dreamers, Jay-Z tore into the president, etc.

Hillary Clinton joined in the fun. In one pre-taped skit featuring several musical artists, the former 2016 Democratic presidential candidate read an excerpt from author Michael Wolff's controversial book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." She was auditioning to read the audiobook and James Corden gave her the job. 

"Fire and Fury" has been roundly dismissed (even by typical liberal outlets and anchors) as a tabloid rag full of unflattering, sensationalized tales about the president.  Wolff himself admits in the book he may have exaggerated a few things.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was extremely disappointed the awards show gave the book such a large platform.

Haley's response was very personal because Wolff has not only been targeting President Trump on his publicity tour. The author began another dangerous rumor last week during his appearance on Bill Maher’s Real Time on HBO, where he claimed that Haley had an affair with Trump. Like many of his other claims, it was unsubstantiated. 

Still, Clinton thought it'd be fun to give Wolff more attention by reading his book at the awards program.

Social media believed Haley had a right to be upset.

Clinton is also facing criticism for reports she helped shield a former campaign advisor who was accused of sexual assault.
