James Corden Reveals How Hillary Clinton's Grammys Skit Almost Didn't Happen

"We had no idea whether Hillary would do it or not."

Hillary Clinton’s trolling of President Donald Trump at the 2018 Grammy Awards almost didn’t happen.

On Monday’s “Late Late Show,” host James Corden (who also hosted Sunday night’s ceremony) revealed how the idea of Clinton reciting an excerpt from Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff’s tell-all book about the Trump White House, came together (see video above). Needless to say, it involved telling lies to the other celebrities in the segment, and desperately hoping that Clinton’s people would agree to Corden’s request.
