Hillary Clinton appeared at the Grammys over the weekend. Unfortunately Ice Cube wasn’t there. Because someone needs to say it:
Madam Cankles didn’t show up to apologize for covering up sexual harassment (see Report Accuses Hillary Clinton of Covering Up Campaign Advisor’s Sexual Harassment and Hillary Clinton Responds to the NYT’s Sexual Harassment Story). She Who Got Beat By Trump was there to take part in this unfunny video. Reminding us all again why she got beat by Trump.
Sprinkle some celebrities and Trump bashing onto a dung heap, and voila! Modern comedy. Apparently the Grammys saw how the anti-Trump Emmy Awards tanked in the ratings and figured #MeToo.
Not everyone was amused. But Nikki Haley’s criticism particularly stands out.
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.

If you’re wondering why Nikki Haley, specifically, might be upset…
Hey #GRAMMYs Twitter…she's saying this because the author of F&F publicly accused her of screwing her way into a new job without presenting any proof supporting the claim…#MeToo #TimesUp ¯_(ツ)_/¯ https://t.co/fxsdXdKLur

Hillary Clinton just publicly endorsed a misogynist, discredited author who has no shame in spreading vicious rumors about one of the nation’s most prominent women (Ambassador Nikki Haley) sleeping her way to the top.

Less than a week after a story drops of Hillary shielding a sexual predator, and intimidating his victims with an NDA, she gets cheered from a room full of people claiming to be for victims. #Metoo has become a glamorized sham. #Grammys

I’m more offended by how criminally unfunny it was. Which isn’t shocking, because it involved James Corden. He should stick to singing other people’s songs in his car.
Also, was Ke$ha singing about #MeToo and Kendrick Lamar not political enough? The Grammys figured, “hey, let’s include a video about a thoroughly debunked book! Just because, rackle rackle not my president.”
This is the new normal for awards shows. Might as well just write a check to Trump 2020.
