The so-called BeyHive swarmed Tuesday afternoon around the social-media profiles of Trump surrogate Betsy McCaughey. The former New York lieutenant governor appeared on CNN the previous evening and quoted Beyoncé lyrics in an effort to absolve Trump of his crude words caught on leaked Access Hollywood audio tapes. “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, quoting Beyoncé’s hit song “Formation.” CNN host Don Lemon noted that despite this line of attack, musicians like Beyoncé are not currently running for president (also: the quoted lyrics are about consensual sex, while Trump’s hot mic words hinted at unsolicited sexual advances). Within hours, McCaughey felt the wrath of the pop star’s notoriously loyal fans, with her Facebook fan page becoming littered with bee emojis and jokes about Red Lobster.
