MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle called out United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley on Monday for complaining that the Grammys had become too political.
In a tweet Sunday night, Haley expressed outrage that Hillary Clinton and others had participated in the Grammys by reading portions of Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House.
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.# p #3_9 # ad skipped = true #

“When I read Nikki Haley tweeting that it destroyed the Grammys that politics were brought into entertainment,” Ruhle said on Monday, “is she aware that the president himself went after Jay-Z this weekend? He goes after [Saturday Night Live]. He goes after average TV ratings. And let me remind you, he goes after the NFL.”
“So how does Nikki Haley say, ‘Grammys are ruined because politics are in the mix’?” the MSNBC host added. “The president has put politics in everything including our breakfast cereal.”
