A former New York politician is learning a hard lesson when it comes to talking sideways about Beyoncé.


Betsy McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York, appeared on CNN Monday evening and attempted to rationalize Donald Trump's comments on a 2005 videotape about grabbing women's vaginas. McCaughey also took issue with the fact that Hillary Clinton slammed Trump for his vulgar language and misogyny. But McCaughey had Beyoncé on the brain and tried to make a comparison between Trump's comments and the singer's music.

“She likes language like this: ‘I came to slay, bitch,'” McCaughey said on CNN Tonight with host Don Lemon.

Lemon could barely keep a straight face.

“When he f—k me good, I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay,” McCaughey continued.


“I abhor lewd body language, McCaughey said. “I don’t listen to rap music; I don’t like that kind of thing.

“It’s full of the f-word, the p-word, the b-word, the a-word,” she added.

Apparently, Beyoncé's words are just as bad as Trump's and Clinton shouldn't want any part of them, and if she does, she's a hypocrite.

And of course the Beyhive got into formation:

Not only are the former politician's mentions on Twitter in shambles, but so is her Facebook page.


McCaughey probably didn't get the part about Beyoncé's music being about her husband and consensual touching, and not about Trump's sexual assault rhetoric.
