Beyonce’s “Formation” lyrics are apparently just as vulgar as Donald Trump saying he likes to grab women by the “p***y,” according to Mother Jones. The Republican presidential candidate recently made headlines after a tape surfaced, where Trump is heard saying nasty sexist comments.
Last month, a video from an Access Hollywood bus leaked on the internet, where Trump is heard saying sexually explicit comments. But former New York Lieutenant Governor and a vocal supporter of Trump, Betsy McCaughey, thinks his presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, is just as vulgar for loving Beyonce.

During her interview with CNN, McCaughey insisted that it’s hypocritical of the Democratic candidate to slam Trump over his “f*** women” and “grab by the p***y” comments because she loves Beyonce, who sings about far worse things in her songs.
After the video surfaced, dozens of Republicans have withdrawn their support from Trump, while Clinton took to Twitter to say Trump’s sexually explicit comments in that tape were “horrific” and adding that the United States cannot allow him to become the next president.
This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president. https://t.co/RwhW7yeFI2

But Clinton is no angel either, McCaughey insists, arguing that the Democratic candidate “likes language like this” because she is a huge fan of Beyonce.
“Hillary Clinton expresses that she finds the language on that bus horrific, but in fact, she likes language like this. Quote, ‘I came to slay b*tch, when he F me good I take his a** to Red Lobster.'”

While the host of the interview was confused, McCaughey explained that it was a line from Beyonce’s hit single “Formation.” And Beyonce, according to Trump’s surrogate, is Clinton’s “favorite performer whom she says she idolizes and would like to imitate.”
In his sexist comments, which are apparently just as vulgar as Beyonce’s lyrics, on the Access Hollywood bus, Trump admitted to host Billy Bush that he actually tried to “f***” former Access Hollywood anchor Nancy O’Dell.
“I’ve moved on her actually. You know, she was down in Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f*** her. She was married.”

Trump then continued and called O’Dell a “b*tch” with “phony t*ts.” But Beyonce is no stranger to writing sexually explicit lyrics for her songs. In her single “Blow,” the 35-year-old singer sang, “Gimme that daddy-long stroke.”
In the tape, Trump is also heard admitting that because he is world-famous, women “let you do anything” to them. The presidential candidate added that it also includes grabbing them “by the p***y.”
But being compared to Trump in her vulgarism is not the only reason why Beyonce has made headlines recently, according to Billboard. The “Formation” singer and her sister, Solange Knowles, have just broken a new music record together.
Solange’s latest album, A Seat at the Table, has just peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, which means that she and Beyonce are now one of few siblings to have both hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart.

In fact, Beyonce is no stranger to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, as she has done it six times already. Her Lemonade album, released earlier this year, peaked at No. 1 as well. The sisters are now among few siblings who have achieved such success.
The list of those record-breaking siblings also includes Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson, as well as Master P and his brother, Silkk the Shocker. Interestingly, Michael Jackson has just as many number one hits as Beyonce, six, while his sister Janet has reigned the chart seven times.
