Angela Rye has two words for Corey Lewandowski: “Boy bye.”
Only a few days after the CNN political commentator made headlines for “the eye roll heard ’round the world,” Rye is back at it again with a Beyonce-inspired shutdown.
While involved in a heated discussion about President Barack Obama and Donald Trump on CNN with Trump’s former campaign manager and CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski, Rye used a lyric from Beyonce’s “Sorry” in an attempt to end the argument.
On Tuesday, President Obama delivered a denunciation of the GOP presidential nominee, calling him “unfit to serve” as president. The commentators were arguing about Obama’s comments and Trump’s call to see Obama’s college records.
“By the way, tell me about those tax returns, Corey, while you’re at it,” Rye says to Lewandowski.
He responds: “You raised the issue, I’m just asking: Did he ever release his transcripts or his admission to Harvard University?”
After several failed attempts to interrupt Lewandowski by saying his name name, Rye then said, “In this moment, I’m going to Beyonce you: Boy bye. You are so out of line right now. Tell your candidate to release his tax returns. Two words: Tax return.”
The lyrics in the singer’s famed breakup anthem from her Lemonade album go as follows: Middle fingers up, put them hands high/Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye/Tell him, boy, bye, boy, bye, middle fingers up/I ain’t thinking ’bout you.
