Beyoncé Fans Are Straight Up Roasting A Trump-Supporting CNN Guest

Better call Betsy with the good hair.

This very weird election continued to get weirder Monday night, when a Trump-supporting CNN guest criticized Hillary Clinton by quoting lyrics from Beyoncé’s “Formation."

A Trump supporter criticized Hillary Clinton for loving Beyoncé and read 'Formation' lyrics on CNN. I'm DEAD. 😂😂😂

Betsy McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York, said that because Clinton is a fan of Beyoncé, who uses "bad language," her denouncement of Trump's "grab them by the pussy" comments is hypocritical.

“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,'" McCaughey said.

The pundit also expressed her distate for rap music “because it’s full of the f-word, the p-word, the b-word, the a-word."

Don Lemon replied that rappers are not “running for president.”

Naturally, Bey fans immediately got in formation and began roasting the heck out of McCaughey.

Confirmed: The BeyHive found the Facebook page of that crazy lady from CNN.

With bee, snake, and lemon emojis — the true mark of BeyHive vengeance.

And people had a LOT to say.

"But Beyonce said..." is a silly defense. Beyonce isn't running for president. That seems like an important distinction.

What Trump talked about wasn't consensual. What Beyoncé sang about was. The fact that some people don't see the distinction is frightening.

Now, her Twitter mentions are a freaking mess.

.@Betsy_McCaughey explain how @Beyonce singing about consensual sex (w/ her hubby) is the same as Trump laughing about sexual assault?
