On Sunday, the Grammy Awards featured a skit where various celebrities poked fun at President Trump by reading excerpts from the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." However, people were most outraged one person in the skit: Hillary Clinton.

Many people took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the awards show for turning so political. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley criticized the show for mixing music with politics.

James Corden, who hosted the Grammys and played a central role in the skit responded to Haley's criticism. During his opening monologue on CBS's "The Late Late Show" on Monday, he clapped back:

“She wrote, ‘Some of us love music without the politics thrown in,’” said Corden. “Well, Nikki Haley, you can tell your boss some of us love politics without the Twitter meltdowns thrown in,” Corden added.

Corden didn't stop there. He also took a shot at Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who had criticized the same Grammys skit in a Sunday tweet.

In his tweet, Donald Trump Jr. commented on the skit, calling Clinton's role in the skit a "consolation prize" for losing the presidency. Corden's response to the tweet went too far.

Corden said, “You’ve got to give him credit—if anyone knows anything about consolation prizes, it’s Donald Trump’s second-favorite child."

“At least you’re not Tiffany,” Corden added, referring to Trump’s youngest daughter.

Corden didn't stop attacking Trump's family. He finished his monologue by taking a shot at Trump's 34-year-old son: “Eric Trump would’ve responded, but he’s not allowed to stay up past 7:30.”
