NEW YORK, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance Sunday at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards during a reading of the best selling book "Fire and Fury" which details U.S. President Donald Trump's first year in office.
"He had a longtime fear of being poisoned -- one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald's. No one knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made," read Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Cheap Air Max 97 Womens , in a pre-taped segment for the Grammys awarding ceremony held at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Sunday evening.
Following her reading, Grammys host James Corden entered the scene, exclaiming "That's it -- that's the one!"
"You think so?" Clinton replied. "The Grammy's in the bag?"
"In the bag!" Corden said.
The star-studded crowd burst into loud applause following the segment.
American singer John Legend, record producer DJ Khaled and rapper Cardi B all took a turn at reading lines from Michael Wolff's controversial book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" released earlier this month.
However, the political moment at the music award ceremony was not appreciated by all. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a Republican Cheap Air Max 97 Mens , was among those who were not pleased with the comedy bit.
"I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it," Haley tweeted Sunday. "Don't ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it."
Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, also tweeted about the moment. "Getting to read a fakenews book excerpt at the Grammys seems like a great consolation prize for losing the presidency," he wrote.
He later added, "The more Hillary goes on television the more the American people realize how awesome it is to have realDonaldTrump (President Trump) in office."
Wolff's book has sold more than 1.7 million copies since its release some three weeks ago Cheap Air Max 97 , said its publisher. Trump has called the controversial tell-all about the his administration "fiction" and its author, Michael Wolff, a "fraud."

HOUSTON, Jan. 25 (Xinhua) -- U.S. energy giant Exxon Mobile said Monday that global energy demand will rise by 25 percent from 2014 to 2040, an increase equivalent to the total energy consumed now in the Americas.
In a report released Monday, the Texas-based company predicts that India and China will account for half of the increase.
Another 30 percent will come from other developing countries such as Brazil Cheap Nike VaporMax Womens , Mexico, South Africa, Nigeria, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia Cheap Nike VaporMax CS , Iran, Thailand and Indonesia, the report says.
Despite the current trend to develop and tap alternative fuel sources, Exxon does not foresee crude oil fall from its position as the top energy source due to increases in population and living standards.
Oil use will grow by 25 percent during this period and use of natural gas will jump by 56 percent, the report says.
Together, oil and gas will account for 57 percent of the world's energy Cheap Nike VaporMax Laceless , up from 56 percent in 2014, it says.
The report predicts coal use will drop to about 30 percent in 2040, from 40 percent in 2014, and that increased use of natural gas will place it in a dead heat with coal as a power generator.
The report also predicts that shale, oil sands mines and deepwater fields will increasingly be relied on for crude supplies and that oil sands' contribution to crude output will more than double in 24 years.
Exxon Mobile uses long-term forecasts for its business and strategic planning.
