Tomi Lahren And Cardi B’s Twitter Beef Over The Wall Brought In the Bardi Gang And It Was Lit

iamcardib / tomilahren / Instagram

Some people think celebrities shouldn’t have a place in political discord, and those people are out of line. Cardi B might be the most famous rapper of our time, but she’s still a person, who not too long ago was just getting by in the Bronx. With the longest government shutdown in history in full swing over a wall, Cardi has as much to say as anyone else.

The response? Conservative analyst Tomi Lahren immediately attacks Cardi B’s intelligence, and then the Bardi Gang roasted her and her supporters.

The House of Cardi B all started with an Instagram Live video…

Which immediately started getting played on FOX News to offer conservative analysts a free bone to go off on her. “Our country is in a hellhole right now. All for a wall. and we need to take this serious,” she said.

The Bardi Gang came out hard at the Women’s March.

Some people just straight quoted her from that one video. She said what we’re all thinking. “I feel like we need to take some action. I don’t know what kind of action, because that’s not what I do… But, I’m scared.” Vale.

Cardi was super honored to see all these signs turn out and kept the sentiments going.

She brought all our chonis into the mix.

“Now, I don’t want to hear all y’all talking about ‘oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days,’ Yeah, for healthcare! So ya grandma can check her blood pressure and you can get your pussy checked at the gynecologist without a problem.” 👏👏👏

People couldn’t get enough of Cardi B’s words.

This was how she promoted her twerk video, by sharing her feelings about the shutdown with this caption:

“I know a lot of ya do r watch the news so I’m letting ya know shit getting real …..I ain’t going to say nothing much tho I don’t want mofos to off me…..ANYWAYS TWERK VIDEO OUT NOW”

“Soo many people under my comments talking about I shouldn’t talk politics, I don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m dumb !”

She went off on Instagram:

“Well I know a little something something..I know 800,000 federal government workers won’t be getting paid till the shutdown is over and government assistants program are shutdown as well as in NO WELFARE , NO WIC, SECTION 8 .I know it’s a little boring to watch the news but it won’t kill ya to visit some IG pages of people that talk about what’s going on in our community like @shaunking @tamikadmallory and shiiieeett sometimes uncle snoop and Charlamgne be saying some shit that goes over ya heads. PAY ATTENTION !!! This can go on for months and it will affect our homes and Country .”

Ultimately, she’s feeling bad for all the people who are working without getting paid right now.

I bow to you, Cardi.

Of course, some big name conservative pundits had some things to say about Cardi.

For the record, Tomi Lahren was fired from The Blaze after telling The View that she believed women should have legal access to abortion, something the Supreme Court agreed with 46 years ago. She was too liberal for them, and far too conservative for Cardi.

But the Gang checked her.

To clarify, federal workers will get paid, but only once the shutdown is over. That means that they need to have the privilege of a nest egg to pay off rent, bills, and living expenses without getting a pay check in the meantime.

Not to be outdone, Cardi checked her.

Cardi’s not here for a brawl with anyone. She’s not a Congresswoman. She’s the Afro-Latina rapper. She doesn’t claim to be a political genius. She is just speaking her mind about current events, which Lahren has made a career on.

We all thought that would put an end to the match but Tomi came back for more.

CREDIT: @SELENAXPLICIT / Twitter

Apparently, search terms for ‘dog walk’ on Urban Dictionary trended. Hint: Cardi threatened to drag her, and she doesn’t play.

Lahren came back at Cardi calling her “rambling” about the shutdown “moronic.”

CREDIT: @tomilahren / Twitter

Let’s not forget that Lahren couldn’t debate on the merits of what Cardi said. Instead, she stooped low and started the name calling and hid behind #BuildthatWall.

The Gang referenced the Constitution in subsequent dragging.

It’s an oldie but a goodie. Tomi just came in hard at insulting someone’s character instead of addressing their political ideas. Classy.

Cardi had time that day to keep the conversation going.

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Twitter

Cardi’s rant caused a stir in the political world with Senators debating publicly on Twitter whether or not to share the video on social media. Clearly her take on the situation was enough to get the attention of those working in Washington.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even got in on the roast.

AOC has been making so many waves already in Congress that I kind of makes sense for her to get in on this debate. In fact, she is even teaching some of her colleagues on how to harness the power of Twitter for their own constituents and careers.

Most people following along just couldn’t handle the expert shade.

CREDIT: @mmpadellan / Twitter

Tomi Lahren’s response? On Facebook, she posted this statement:

“If I imply Cardi B is not a political genius, the Liberals say I’m mean and offensive. If Cardi B and followers threaten to beat me up, the Liberals laugh and encourage it. That’s Liberal Playbook 101.”

Meanwhile, Cardi continued to shut down haters one tweet at a time.

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Twitter

Literally, people with names like “White Bread” are trying to start something with Cardi? This woman is happily paying her taxes, which, yes, pay for your insurance.

Then, this Twitter user came through with a series of attacks, all worse than this one:

CREDIT: @TheRightMelissa / Twitter

It’s amazing how one little video by a rapper can cause such controversy on social media. That is the world we all live in today.

Cardi B is now having to school Post-Modern Feminism 101 via Twitter.

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Twitter

How is this even a topic? If you don’t want to perform sex work, fine. Nobody is calling you out for not empowering the full scope of the female body and mystique.

Cardi’s final message:

CREDIT: @iamcardib / Twitter

Take the blinders off. Look at the 800,000 people suffering instead of blindly focusing on one very orange man.

My hat’s off to you, Bardi Gang.

Some people are not about Cardi sharing her political views, but 👏this👏is👏what👏democracy👏looks👏like👏. Have a political opinion? Express it without insulting or reducing the personhood of the other person.

We first met Carmen Carrera on RuPaul’s Drag Race before she transitioned. She’s been admired since day one for her natural beauty and is a transgender activist first and foremost. She even called out RuPaul himself for his transphobic segments on the show, since removed after her public protests.

Gabriel Zamora

Born and raised in Houston, Zamora’s parents moved from Mexico to Texas to give their kids a better life. English wasn’t really permitted in the house. He told VivaLa about how his bond with his parents has helped him become who he is today: “I know I’m one of the luckiest people in this world to have the mother that I have because I knew many people who didn’t have accepting parents. My mother loves me unconditionally. There are no ifs, ands, or buts — she loves me.”

Follow @gabrielzamora for unabashed self-love.

“You just have to be yourself, and you have to embrace yourself and find out why you’re different and enjoy that. I think that’s what makes me me because I am Latino, I am a gay male, and I wear makeup. I embrace all those three things and I think my social media family loves that I do. Not because I am that, but because I, myself, embody that and they can hopefully see something in me that they can see in themselves — and they can hopefully like it,” he told VivaLA.

The truth is that Brown is the guru of many things. He started out as a model, became a social worker, and then jumped back into the entertainment industry. On Queer Eye and in life, he’s completely open about wearing makeup on the daily and guess what? Men wearing makeup no longer has to be a “statement.” It just is, and for all these people listed, we’re grateful.
