Donald Trump Bashes Beyonce, Jay Z as Profane, Pathetic
Donald Trump has really done it now.
Sure, you might think this ignorant, racist, anti-Semitic monster had ruined his chance to be elected President of the United States way back when he referred to Mexicans as “rapists.”
Or maybe you thought he doomed himself by picking a fight with a former beauty pageant winner… or telling Billy Bush that he just grabs the pussy of any woman he wants.
Or perhaps you believed his Presidential hopes were dashed when 12 women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct.
But Trump committed his worst offense of all on Saturday: he insulted Beyonce.
After Beyonce and Jay Z campaigned on behalf of Hillary Clinton this weekend, performing a bit prior to bringing the Democratic nominee on stage, Trump told supporters in Nevada that he was aghast of their lyrics.
“I’ve never said what [Jay Z] said in my life,” Trump said in his speech, never specifically referring to any of the rapper’s lyrics.
“He used every word in the book last night,” Trump continued. “He used language last night that was so bad and then Hillary said, ‘I did not like Donald Trump’s lewd language.’ My lewd language. I tell you what, I’ve never said what he said in my life.”
Trump is using a similar argument here that some of his defenders tried out back after the Bully Bush video went viral.
He’s claiming that Clinton and other critics of his are hypocritical because he may have used some “locker room” type of language on various occasions..
… but Clinton is friends with celebrities who have said much worse things in their professional or personal lives.
Here. Take a look at the video below to see a hilarious example of a Republican defending Trump via this same warped logic:
Jay Z performed a number of his hit songs Friday night, and, yes, some of the lyrics uttered were the N-word, F-word and motherf—–, although he did self-censor at certain points.
Let’s ignore the fact that footage exists of Trump himself dropping at least two of these words himself on the campaign trail.
And let’s focus on the fact that there’s a slight difference between Trump bragging about his own treatment of women – and an artist singing broadly about the opposite sex.
Must we really point that out?
Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, also accused Clinton of hypocrisy, referring Twitter followers to Clinton’s claim that “our children are listening” in her criticisms of the Republican nominee.
“Because our children are listening” right Hillary? Jay Z drops the n-word, f-bomb during concert for Hillary Clinton,” Conway wrote on social media yesterday, linking to a story about Jay Z’s use of profanity during the concert.
Elsewhere, Trump also noted during a rally in Reno that he didn’t bring any “so-called stars along” with him the trail.
“We didn’t need them,” he told the crowd at a rally in Reno on Saturday. “The reason Hillary has to do that is, nobody comes for her. She can’t fill a room.
“That’s almost like a form of cheating, right?”
Trump had Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr. speaking out for him at the Republican National Convention this summer.
It’s not cheating just because Clinton’s supporters are more famous.
If Trump wants to call up any of the stars featured above, we’re guessing they’d be happy to jump on the campaign trail with him.
