Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may already have a Grammy to her name, but on Sunday night she jokingly auditioned for the role of narrator to “Fire and Fury,” Michael Wolff’s insider account of drama in President Donald Trump’s White House.
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” the former Democratic presidential candidate read from the book, before Grammy host James Corden told her she had the award “in the bag.”
Along with Clinton, Corden’s bit of searching for the best narrator of Wolff’s book included Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, DJ Khaled and other stars.
“If Trump was not having his 6:30 dinner with Steve Bannon, then more to his liking he was in bed by that time with cheeseburger,” “Bodak Yellow” singer Cardi B read. “Whaa, why am I reading this sh–. I can’t believe this. I believe … really this is he how lives his life?”
“He reprimanded the housekeeping staff for picking up his shirt from the floor: “If my shirt is on the floor, it’s because I want it on the floor,” read DJ Khaled, before using his signature phrase “another one” and saying “this is the best spoken word album in the game” before adding a hip-hop air horn.
When Corden told the “All I Do is Win,” singer that the gig was not for him, DJ Khaled jokingly grew frustrated and protested by saying, “Everything I do works.”
