Here Is How Twitter Reacted To Cardi B Voicing Political Opinions

 

So far throughout 2019, we’ve seen many big name celebrities jumping into internet feuds as controversial events and posts are made across social media platforms, like Instagram and Twitter for example. Lately, the internet has been largely dominated by President Donald Trump’s ongoing feud with congressional Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which many celebrities have commented on publicly, two of which are award-winning rapper Cardi B and Fox News commentator, Tomi Lahren who recently engaged in a Twitter feud on the topic, and Cardi B fans are here for it.

Cardi B, who’s real name is Belcalis Almanzar recently tweeted about the topic, saying “You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize [that] the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much,” She continued, saying “You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!”

After her latest response, a feud appeared to have broken out between the two women late last week when Lahren moved to mock Cardi B for her viral denunciation of Trump and the ongoing government shutdown. In a tweet, Lahren ridiculed Cardi B as “the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats.

Cardi B, of course quickly hit back, saying “Never one to mince words,” and to “Leave me alone,” she tweeted at the conservative news commentator. “I will dog walk you.”

 

 

But judging from the long list of people — including a number of political commentators and current and former lawmakers who have cheered Cardi B’s tweets and blunt summary of the shutdown, many likely wouldn’t agree with Lahren’s “moronic” label on the matter.

Additionally, many of Cardi B’s fans quickly chimed in to support the rapper. One fan in particular tweeted, “You are the political commentator I didn’t know I needed.”

 

In a video posted to her Instagram account recently, the famous rapper, Cardi B denounced the Trump administration for ordering thousands of furloughed federal employees to return to work without pay. Cardi stated, “Our country is in a hellhole right now,” she said. “All for a f‐‐‐ing wall and we really need to take this serious.” The rapper went on to urge action. “I feel like we need to take some action,” she said. “I don’t know what type of action … because this is not what I do. But b‐‐‐‐, I’m scared.” and stated that “This is crazy,” she concluded. “And I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to f‐‐‐ing work to not get motherf‐‐‐ing paid.”

 

 

Of course, this isn’t exactly the first time Cardi B has shown herself as a strong and opinionated woman thats interested in something of a political science aficionado. In profile published in GQ in April, the rapper also shared her impressive knowledge of U.S. presidents and government systems as well as a blossoming interest in current political events. Additionally, the rapper also told GQ she’s always paying attention to the news and gets annoyed when people assume her interest in politics and current events in an attempt to garner likes on social media.

“I hate when you talk about something that’s going on in the community, [and] people think, because you’re famous, you doing it for clout,” she told GQ. “But you concerned about it because you are a citizen of America; you are a citizen of the world.” she continued.
