Donald Trump and his supporters have blamed Hillary Clinton for a wide array of things and now, we can add Beyoncé lyrics to that list.
Trump supporter Betsy McCaughey told a baffled CNN panel Monday night that Clinton’s Beyoncé fandom made it hypocritical for her to denounce predatory comments about women that Trump made on a leaked tape.
McCaughey began her rant by denouncing rap music and it’s “bawdy” language and comparing it to the kind of language Trump used in a 2005 recording from an “Access Hollywood” taping that was published Friday.
Then, the real magic happened when McCaughey recited a line from Beyoncé’s “Formation.”
“I mentioned rap music because it’s full of the F word, the P word, the B word, the A word, the, all those—” McCaughey said.
“I don’t think anybody likes that, but those people are not running for president,” host Don Lemon countered.
“Yes, but I wanted to point something out,” McCaughey said. “And which is that Hillary Clinton expresses that she finds the language on that bus horrific, but in fact she likes language like this. Quote, ‘I came to slay bitch, when he F me good I take his ass to Red Lobster.'”
“(Clinton’s) favorite performer whom she says she idolizes and would like to imitate,” McCaughey said. “So you know what I’m saying to you? There’s a lot of hypocrisy in Hillary Clinton expressing such horror at the language on the bus.”
