Hillary Clinton narrates Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. In a bit, host James Corden spoke about how there are multiple ways to win a Grammy such as through the spoken word category. Corden mentioned how Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Al Gore have won in this category. He then said Donald Trump liked winning awards and wondered who would narrate the book about him.
The book currently occupies the much-envied top spot on Amazon’s list of best-selling books. That mirrors overnight reports of some physical bookstores in the Washington, D.C., area having sold out of the book just minutes after it went on sale. Wolff’s book has an average review of 4.8 stars, with 89 percent of reviewers giving the book five stars.
While a number of musicians narrated some sentences from “Fire and Fury,” the surprising end to the comedy bit saw Trump’s opponent in the 2016 U.S. presidential election race read some passages from the book. Of course, the comedy bit received mixed reactions on social media depending on your political leanings.
