CNN panelist Angela Rye used Beyoncé’s latest album “Lemonade” to defend how Hillary Clinton handled her husband’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
On CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night, the panel was discussing whether or not Donald Trump’s latest tactic to label Clinton an “enabler” of her husband’s affair will work to win over voters.

Rye, a Democratic strategist, asked the panel how they would expect a woman to act toward the women “who’s been having an affair with her husband.”
“I find it out outrageous that human beings, regardless — I know this is a political panel, but let’s just be human for a second,” she said. “How would you expect for a women whose husband cheated on her to behave?”
“You know what, you don’t even have to go the Monica Lewinsky incident. You can go to Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade,'” she added. “Because she, I’m serious, she’s talking about infidelity for women all over the world who have experienced it, and they are the victims.”
“I don’t for life of me understand how we got to a place where this women who is running for president and did not cheat on her husband, is all of the sudden the predator,” she went on. “You are calling her an enabler. You are saying that she should be ashamed of herself for criticizing this women who is the source of the affair with her husband.”
