What a time to be alive.
In case you're living under a rock (jealous), a recording of Donald Trump from 11-years ago bragging about forcing himself on women and doing what he pleases to married women has surfaced. Pussygate, as I like to call it. The New York Times swiftly published a story with quotes from women who detailed his piggish and abusive ways. The firestorm of controversy forced the Donald to address the matter in a video message, where he "apologized" by admitting he isn't proud of the recording before lambasting former President Bill Clinton.
This all lead up to the big debate on Sunday, where Trump attempted to throw Clinton off her A-game, but to no avail. Naturally, all of this political fodder is taking center stage on CNN. Former New York Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey is pro-Trump, and tries to defend the tax evader during a roundtable discussion by reading a lyric from Beyonce's "Formation" record because Clinton is an unapologetic member of the BeyHive.
"I abhor lewd and bawdy language," she says. "I don’t listen to rap music. I don’t like that kind of thing… It’s fully of the F-word, the P-word, the B-word, the A-word, all that stuff… I wanted to point something out, which is that Hillary Clinton expresses that she finds the language on that bus horrific, but, in fact, she likes language like this: 'I came to slay, bitch. When he F me good, I take his ass to Red Lobster.' That happens to be from Beyoncé, her favorite performer, whom she says she idolizes and would like to imitate. 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.
Here’s a call for Hillary Clinton to denounce Beyonce for singing about going to Red Lobster 👀 pic.twitter.com/aJkRgvxE7G
