Hillary Clinton made an embarrassing appearance at the Grammy’s Sunday night in a painfully unfunny video where she reads excerpts of Micheal Wolf’s Book, Fire and Fury.
In the sketch, host James Corden auditions celebrities for the spoken word version of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury.” Among those who “auditioned” were Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, John Legend, DJ Khaled, and of course, Hillary. In an attempt at a dramatic reveal, the video shows Hillary awkwardly covering her face with the book when she first appears. The problem is that she’s not only obviously covering her face, as opposed naturally holding the book that way, she also begins reading before she lowers it, making it even more obvious that its her. If her direction was to make it look forced and stupid, she nails it. On top of that, she delivers a final line that’s more terrifying than anything else. After Corden says, “That’s the one,” Hillary turns to him with the eyes of a homicidal maniac and says, “Grammy’s in the bag?”
It’s truly horrifying.
“Fire and Fury” has been shown to lack credibility by many in the media, including CNN’s Jake Tapper who’d love for it to be true. But you don’t need the media fact checkers to see that this one is bogus. All you have to do is look at the second page of the book’s Author’s Note to see that Wolf’s claims are subjective and unverifiable.
In the Author’s Note, which appears immediately after the table of contents, Wolf writes,
“I have, through consistency in accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true. Some of my sources spoke to me on so-called deep background, a convention of contemporary political books that allows for a disembodied description of events provided by an unnamed witness to them. I have also relied on off-the-record interviews, allowing a source to provide a direct quote with the understanding that it was not for attribution.”
In other words, there’s no way to verify anything written in the book. Yet, Hillary Clinton and a handful of celebrities read excerpts from it at the Grammy’s as though the book’s dubious claims are facts.
Propaganda has poisoned nearly every corner of the entertainment industry.
