On the hunt for a spoken word GRAMMY Award, James Corden invites Cardi B, John Legend, DJ Khaled, Cher, Snoop Dogg, and Hillary Clinton to audition to narrate Michael Wolff’s best-selling account of President Donald Trump’s White House, “Fire and Fury.”
Controversy has raged for weeks in the wake of the publication of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
An all out war broke out between Trump and Breitbart News when a sneak peak of the book published by The Guardian revealed that then executive chairman of Breitbart Steve Bannon was quoted in the book.
As The Guardian reported at the time: “Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as ‘treasonous’ and ‘unpatriotic'” according to”Fire and Fury.” According to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian,
Bannon, who was chief executive of the Trump campaign in its final three months, then White House chief strategist for seven months before returning to the rightwing Breitbart News, is a central figure in the nasty, cutthroat drama, quoted extensively, often in salty language.
Trump punched back, releasing a statement accusing Bannon of leaking false information to the media about his influence and importance and accused him of trying to burn down his MAGA agenda.
“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind,” the statement began, adding: “Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look.”
Twitter exploded a few days later, after Trump threw a Twitter-Tantrum about the book’s release and boasted of his “very stable genius.”
"Very stable genius" is the new
"Total fucking moron."

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, found herself caught up in the controversy as well, when it was learned that she was quoted mocking Trump’s hair in “Fire and Fury.”
As the New York Post reported at the time: “Trump’s bizarre hairdo is the result of scalp-reduction surgery, careful styling held in place by strong hairspray — and too much cheap dye… Daughter Ivanka Trump often makes fun of her dad’s comb-over to friends and delights in explaining how the crazy coiffure comes together, according to ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.’”
Below is Wolff’s accounting from “Fire and Fury:”
She treated her father with some lightness, even irony, and in at least one television interview she made fun of [Trump’s] comb-over. She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray.
Continuing, Wolff recounts Ivanka’s explanation for the orange hue of his hair:
The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.
Hillary Clinton, Cardi B, & more audition for “Fire & Fury” at the 2018 Grammy Awards
NBC News reported that: “Bruno Mars beat Jay-Z for the top Grammy Awards on Sunday, but the surprise star of the night was former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton reading from Michael Wolff’s controversial book ‘Fire and Fury.'”
James Corden, the host of this year’s Grammy Awards show posted a copy of the spoof on his YouTube page along with the following text:

Appearing last in the clip, Hillary Clinton read a passage about Trump’s eating habits.
“One reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s: Nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made,” Clinton read.
Corden then appeared in the clip praising her, saying, “The Grammy is in the bag.”
