A political commentator used a Beyoncé lyric to take down Trump on CNN, and we bow before her greatness
You may remember Angela Rye — political commentator for the people — from the life-giving eye roll she gave on CNN earlier this week after some basic pro-Trump panelist started ranting about the “great things” Trump apparently does in his private time:
Some might say Rye has become an icon during the tumultuous political era which we currently inhabit, and rightfully so.
Now, Rye has once again spoken for us all on a CNN panel, with help from another life-giver, Beyoncé, and her song, “Sorry.”
Corey Lewandowski, fired Trump campaign manager and current CNN commentator, attempted to dig up the racist (and disproven) “birther” argument that has followed Obama throughout his presidency.
The birther movement was a futile attempt to “reveal” that our first black president couldn’t possibly be a U.S. citizen.
On-air, Rye stated:
“Donald Trump has been attacking the president long before he began campaigning for this important office. He is the one who was the spokesperson for the birther movement and was calling for transcripts and saying that the president was an affirmative action admittee of Harvard.”
Lewandowski responded, “Did he ever release his transcripts from Harvard?” — clearly grasping for anything that could possibly be used to support the falsehoods argued by birthers.
Rye ignored Lewandowski’s foolishness, responding instead with a question about the whereabouts of Donald Trump’s unreleased tax returns.
Lewandowski gets one more word in before Rye shuts the house down. He says, “Well you raised the issue… did he ever release his transcripts or his admission to Harvard University? You raised the issue, so just ‘yes,’ or ‘no.’”
AND THEN IT HAPPENED.
Angela Rye, Greatest Of All Time, uttered, “Corey? Just a moment… I’m going to Beyoncé you. Boy, bye.”
She continues, “You just so out of line right now, tell your candidate to release his tax returns.”
