MSNBC’s Ari Melber Trolls Trump’s Border Wall By Quoting Destiny’s Child's ‘Bills Bills Bills’

The news host's deadpan reciting of the lyrics was a hit among viewers.

Published January 3rd

During Wednesday night's broadcast of The Beat with Ari Melber, the MSNBC host, who is known for often quoting rap and hip-hop lyrics in a segment, savagely trolled Donald Trump by quoting a Destiny's Child classic. 

Melber, who has never been afraid to confront the Trump administration, presented a segment on the government shutdown over funding for the border wall. During his candidacy, Trump promised to build a wall at the southern border and insisted Mexico would pay for it.

After Mexico repeatedly denied they would pay for the wall, Trump put pressure on congress to come up with the money for the wall, meaning it would be up to the taxpayers to foot the bill. 

  1. On his show, Ari Melber likened Donald Trump to the same scrubs that Beyonce sung about in the song 'bills, bills, bills'

    "We all know someone like this a 'scrub who runs up the tab and then when the bill comes, all of the sudden, they're acting dumb,'" Melber read.

    "Donald Trump didn't pay his bills in business," he added, "he's not paying the bill he promised Mexico would pay, and now he's passing the bill to the American taxpayers."

  2. People who watched the segment live were not ready for Melber's deadpan reading of the '90s hit
  3. Needless to say, some didn't know how to feel when the lyrics dropped
