Amid talk surrounding who did and didn’t get snubbed, there’s one thing the majority of social media seems to agree on: that Fire and Fury skit was pretty damn funny. Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, didn’t think so, however. She took to Twitter shortly after the sketch aired to voice her disapproval.

“I have always loved the Grammys, but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it,” she said. “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”

Donald Trump Jr. wasn’t too thrilled either, writing, “Getting to read a #fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency.”

It’s worth nothing that Hillary Clinton made an appearance in the skit.

The two-minute clip finds James Corden—determined to win a Grammy award for “Best Spoken Word” Album—on the hunt for the best celebrity to read the spoken word version of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury. Featuring the likes of Snoop Dogg and Cardi B, the pre-taped sketch showcases big-name stars “auditioning” for the role by reading excerpts of 2018’s most-talked-about book.

“Why am I even reading this sh*t?” Cardi hilariously questions mid-read. “I can’t believe this! I can’t believe that he really—this how he lives his life?”

For Hillary’s audition, she reads an excerpt from the book detailing Trump’s affinity for the drive-thru.

“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned,” she reads with the book covering her face before revealing her identity. “One reason why he liked to eat at McDonalds: Nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made.”

Trump himself has yet to Tweet a response, though we have a feeling one is coming soon. Until that happens, you can watch the skit below.
