Several celebrities appeared in a sketch at the Grammy Awards last night that directly criticized Donald Trump.

The sketch was ostensibly about host James Corden hoping to win next year’s Best Spoken Word Album award with a reading of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

The book, based on over 200 interviews with Trump and his associates, details Trump’s erratic behavior and concludes that “100% of the people around him” believe he is unfit for office. The Trump Administration contends that the book is inaccurate and the White House even sent cease-and-desist letters to Wolff and his publisher.

Cher, Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Cardi B, and DJ Khaled also participated in the sketch, which high-lighted some of the more bizarre passages in the book.

Grammy producers said that they have been talking with Clinton about the sketch for a few weeks, and they filmed it last week in New York City. She read one of the best-known passages about Trump’s love of fast food:

He had a longtime fear of being poisoned. One reason why he liked to eat at McDonalds. No one knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made.

The burn must have been sick, because on Twitter this morning, the tears were real.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley called the book as “trash.”

Donald Trump Jr. joked about how the sketch was Clinton’s “consolation prize,” which shows about how seriously the Trump family takes the job of president.

Fox News host Tomi Lahren said the sketch showed that musicians are “out of touch” with Americans. Except… 56% of Americans disapprove of Trump.

Bill O’Reilly, who was starkly political for years on a “fair and balanced” channel, boo-hooed about all the partisanship on the Grammys.

There are so many tears on Twitter right now. Most conservatives were just hurt that not everyone agrees with them.

Because conservatives never act like they think they’re better than others… like minorities, LGBTQ people, immigrants, the unemployed, the poor….

Bottom line: Clinton struck a nerve.
