Hillary Clinton made an appearance in a pre-recorded skit at the Grammy Awards that mocked President Trump.

In the skit, the former Democratic presidential candidate read passages from Michael Wolff’s controversial book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” Music artists like Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, and DJ Khaled also read excerpts.

Among the many reacting to the segment on social media, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley was quick to criticise the “Fire and Fury” skit on Twitter.

“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it,” Haley wrote. She also wrote “that part ruined the Grammys. Such a shame.”

Last week, Haley shot down a rumour that she was having an affair with Trump that stemmed from Wolff’s book.

Wolff told HBO’s Bill Maher that in writing his book he was “absolutely sure” Trump was having an affair, and Politico readers zeroed in on a single sentence in the text that mentioned Trump “spending a notable amount of time with Haley on Air Force One.” Haley called the rumour “highly offensive” and “disgusting” in a Politico interview on Friday.
