James Corden Has No Time for Nikki Haley’s Complaints That the Grammys Were Too Political

Though there were a handful of outspoken political moments at this year’s Grammys to feign outrage over, the easiest was a sardonic reading of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury perfectly executed by Cardi B, Hillary Clinton (who apparently saved the bit at the 11th hour), and more. Upon seeing the sketch, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley vented her fire and fury on Twitter, saying, “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.” Now that host James Corden is back in L.A., and still a little frazzled from the whirlwind night and commute, he wanted to explain that he had no time for Haley’s complaints. On last night’s Late Late Show, he pointed out how the night was full of political subtext, from Kendrick Lamar to U2, and her anger was really pretty selective. His response: “Well, Nikki Haley, you can tell your boss, some of us love politics without the Twitter meltdowns thrown in.”
