Donald Trump supporter Betsy McCaughey quoted "Formation" by Beyoncé while trying to make a point about Hillary Clinton being a hypocrite during a CNN panel discussion Monday on Trump’s "locker room" talk.
"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 eff me good, I take his ass to Red Lobster,’" McCaughey said, referring to the recently surfaced Trump tape from 2005 before quoting Beyoncé.

Host Don Lemon asked if Clinton had actually said that.
"Oh, Beyoncé said that," CNN commentator Tara Setmeyer interjected.
Lemon reiterated that Beyoncé said those words, not Clinton.
McCaughley explained that even though Clinton did not say the line, the person who did is someone Clinton describes in the highest regard.
"You know what I’m saying to you?" she said. "There’s a lot of hypocrisy in Hillary Clinton expressing such horror at the language on the bus–"
"Okay, Betsy," Lemon interjected.
Setmeyer stepped in and said that this hypocrisy could be seen in the Republican Party with those who still support Trump.
"You could flip that around and say that’s hypocrisy on the part of Republicans who are now–who embrace, continue to embrace Donald Trump because we were supposed to be the party of values, of family values, and I know–I personally have spoken out against lyrics like that," she said. "I actually wrote something about it. I’ve done that for years. And so where–so, how do Republicans maintain that moral high ground if they’re saying, ‘I know you are, but what am I? They’re worse.’"
McCaughley said that she did not like such lyrics either, but she was questioning Clinton’s sincerity.
While Lemon tried to conclude the discussion, McCaughley was egged on to say the lyrics again.
"Oh my god," Setmeyer said.
"I came to slay bitch, when he eff me good, I take his ass to Red Lobster," she repeated.
Lemon then wrapped up the discussion.
"As much as I really liked hearing you say those–read those lyrics, Beyoncé’s lyrics, Hillary Clinton did not say that," he said.
Red Lobster reportedly saw an increase in revenue of 33 percent earlier this year because of Beyoncé’s song.
