Cardi B Endorsed AOC For President And The Pair Revealed Possible New Meaning For ‘WAP’

The apparent sisterhood between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cardi B is giving me much needed life right now, as we’re in the middle of our six month of a global pandemic. To be honest, even if we weren’t, this relationship between a rising Progressive politician and one of the world’s most successful rappers would be all I needed.

Over the weekend, the love between the two became even more apparent as Cardi B basically endorsed the Congresswoman for the nation’s highest office. And just thinking about that possibility right now, in 2020, in the middle of a pandemic, just brings on the tears. Then AOC had to take it to the next level and basically reinvent the lyrics to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” and I don’t know how much more beauty I can take.

Cardi B has endorsed AOC for President in 2024 – and she didn’t say no.

Over the weekend, AOC was on Instagram sharing her dental care journey. Although very important, especially considering the shocking costs of dental care in this country, it wasn’t all that exciting – at least at first.

Explaining that she hadn’t had access to health insurance for years before her election, AOC noted that she was finally able to get (still-not-very-affordable) dental treatment thanks to her job. In other words, she “got a bag and fixed her teeth,” to quote Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow,” which plays in the background. “EXCEPT YOU SHOULDN’T NEED A BAG TO FIX YOUR TEETH, GET INSULIN, GET HEALTH CARE,” AOC added. Cardi B appears to agree.

On Saturday, the rapper and co-author of the summer’s horniest anthem (“WAP,” which stands for “Wet Ass Pussy,” a collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion) tweeted an excerpt from AOC’s Instagram stories.

Cardi B took note of AOC’s shout-out and gave her one of her own: “She better run for president when she turns 35,” she wrote on Twitter on Friday.

Does this mean we have hope for an AOC-Cardi campaign collab? I for one wouldn’t be mad at all if, in the future, America is a place where Cardi B provides the score to an AOC presidential campaign.

AOC then reinvented the meaning to this summer’s anthem “WAP” and it’s so good.

Although we still have to wait at least one more election cycle for AOC to even be legally old enough to run for the nation’s highest office, the freshman congresswoman didn’t say no. Instead, she tweeted back at Cardi, “Women Against Patriarchy (WAP) 2020,” an apparent reference to the rapper‘s chart-topping latest hit.

Although AOC hasn’t even expressed an interest in running for the presidency, she has been very involved in this year’s primary and election. She also won her primary in New York, basically securing her second term in Congress.

And just to touch on AOC’s initial point about dental care – it is expensive AF and she has a huge point.

In Ocasio-Cortez’s original Instagram Story, she went on to extol the virtues of Medicare For All, writing that “DENTAL HEALTHCARE IS HEALTHCARE.”

“If you are making fun of someone’s smile, you are likely making fun of the fact that they don’t have access to HEALTHCARE,” she wrote. “Don’t do that! It makes YOU ugly. Matter of fact don’t make fun of people’s bodies EVER – more often than not it’s tied to roots that are ableist, racist, colorist, classist, etc.”

“Know that if you’re in the same situation, and you are worried that your teeth are having a lil party, you are beautiful and I hope you soon get whatever healthcare YOU want and need,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “I had to wait years, and hopefully our future won’t be like this.”

Cardi B Is, Once Again, Fed Up With Trolls Trying to Body Shame Her With Edited Photos

Cardi B, once again, took to Instagram to combat the neverending stream of trolls who are trying to tear her down.

Earlier this month, some unflattering photos of Cardi made the rounds on the internet, prompting people to publicly bully her for her looks. The unflattering photos showed her makeup-free, her hoodie up, appearing to be shopping at her local Target.

Cardi was hone too pleased with the photos. In a now-deleted Instagram post, she shared a side-by-side photos of the viral picture next to the original one. The viral picture was noticeably photo-shopped to make her face look less attractive and her behind look more exaggerated.

In a lengthy Instagram caption, Cardi condemned the internet bullies, calling out people for sharing photoshopped pictures on their platforms for clicks and likes.

“It’s the fact that people try to photoshop my face and body to post on their platform so people can bash me and make me feel down on my appearance on purpose….and the fact this a paparazzi picture from months ago,” she wrote.

She also added a note in her comments calling out the hypocriy of some of the female bullies who otherwise claim to be all about “supporting women” and “female empowerment”.

“And the sad sh– is,” she said. “That the people that be doing these rumors and be trying to make people bash me about my looks are WOMEN!”

Ironically enough, the shopping session that Cardi was papped at was allegedly dedicated to her buying $5,000 worth of gifts for children in need in the upcoming holiday season. The photos were from December 2019.

This isn’t the first time Cardi has publicly clapped back at body-shamers and online haters. In June, she was also the target of internet harassers who were criticizing her for gaining weight during quarantine.

At the time, Cardi posted a response video to Instagram joking that she “gained a little weight” but had “lipo money”, so the haters didn’t bother her. And in the past, it seems that haters never have bothered her.

Cardi has always been transparent about her willingness to go under the knife in order to alter her appearance.

But she’s always expressed her frustration at the catch-22 that comes with plastic surgery. “I feel like women constantly body shame me. They wanna be like: your body’s mad fake. You got fake boobs, you got a fake ass,” she said in a 2017 interview with HOT 97.

“And it’s just like: if you love your body so much, then why are you mad that I have a fake body? Maybe I didn’t really like my body. Does it bother you that I didn’t like my prior body and I wanted to get it fixed? People is never happy.”

But as always, Cardi considers success the best form of revenge. She promised that the haters are going to be especially mad in the next months, seeing as she has a project in the works that will “make a sick soul nauseous”.

If her new project comes anything close to the success she’s had recently, we’re 100% here for it.

Cardi B Shared on Instagram The Heartfelt Gift That Lizzo Sent Her After News of Her Divorce Leaked

Cardi B may be newly single, but that doesn’t mean the chart-topping female MC isn’t living her best life.

On Tuesday, Cardi took to Instagram to show off a gorgeous bouquet of flowers that was sent to her by none other than Lizzo. “Flowers for a flower!” the note read. “Congrats on all your success this summer–know you are loved and are love. P.S – I’m sending you something good this week. Love, Lizzo!”

Cardi couldn’t help but gush over her fellow rapper and Hustlers co-star.

“Isn’t Lizzo like the nicest person in the world?” she asked her Instagram followers. “Look what she sent me! She is just a beautiful-ass person, I just love her so much. These are so pretty!”

Cardi, for her part, has long-expressed her admiration for Lizzo. Back in August, Cardi admitted that she had originally wanted Lizzo to appear in her WAP music video. 

In an interview with HOT 97, Cardi revealed that she “had a whole vision” about how Lizzo would appear in her now-legendary music video. Unfortunately, Lizzo was out of town and wasn’t able to make the shoot. 

Lizzo’s gift as well as the note was ostensibly in response to the recent bombshell news that Cardi B is divorcing her husband, Offset.

The news, which also broke on Tuesday, took fans by surprise. According to the paperwork which was filed at an Atlanta courthouse, the marriage is “irretrievably broken” with “no prospects for a reconciliation.” 

Of course, this wasn’t the first time Cardi’s fans have heard about her martial drama. Cardi and Offset’s three-year marriage had long been plagued by reports of infidelity as well as public break-ups and reconciliations.

In the past, Cardi has always spoken publicly about her decision to continue to take Offset back after his many cheating scandals. 

“When me and my husband got into our issues—you know, he cheated and everything—and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me,” Cardi explained in a tell-all interview with Vogue.

“But it’s real-life shit,” she continued. “If you love somebody and you stop being with them…you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. People that be in marriages for years, when they say till death do us part…that’s including everything.”

As of yet, neither Cardi nor Offset have publicly commented on the news of their divorce. The most recent post Offset has put on Instagram has been a picture of him leaning against a car looking disaffected. The caption reads: “Grind don’t stop”. The comments are, noticeably, turned off.
