Stephen Colbert sounded off on Sunday’s Grammy Awards during his show Monday night.
“It was a pretty political show last night. A lot of artists called out Trump’s immigration policies,” he told the audience in his opening monologue, specifically mentioning Camila Cabello, U2 and the rapper Logic, prompting Colbert to joke, “not the first time that Donald Trump and logic have been at odds.”
U2 performed an ode to immigrants in front of the Statue of Liberty during the Grammys. They were introduced by Cabello, who was born in Cuba, as she made an impassioned plea for immigration and DACA “dreamers.” For his part, Logic took a moment to rant about current issues including the #MeToo movement, immigration and Trump’s “shithole” comments after his performance.
One of the night’s biggest moments came when Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance as part of a sketch by host James Corden in which multiple celebrities read from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which Colbert also had something to say about.
“That must have made Trump so mad, to see Hillary showing off how she can read,” Colbert joked. He also made a shoutout to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, who tweeted, “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.”
In response, Colbert said, “She just wants to take us back to when music was less political. You know John Lennon, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, N.W.A. I for one love their song, ‘No Comment on the Police.'”
