Cardi B Claps Back At “Republicans And Conservatives” Who Want Her To Shut Up When It Comes To Politics

Cardi B isn’t known for keeping quiet. She’s not afraid to speak her mind and share her views. Even if it means pissing off a whole lot of people. It’s one of the things that people love most about her.

Though it’s also one of the things that seems to be sending a lot of people into an angry rage. Maybe because as a hugely popular entertainer, Cardi B has the power to shift some people’s votes…?

Since the “Press” singer came out and publicly supported Bernie Sanders for president, many people have been coming for the rapper saying she needs to keep quiet. Well you know Cardi, that just incensed her to speak out even more.

Cardi B shared a video on her Twitter clapping back at the hate she’s got for speaking her mind when it comes to politics.

In the video Cardi B says that a lot of “Republicans are Conservatives have been dragging her” but tat she hasn’t been saying anything terrible about “these people and their President.”

She also shared how her father is the one who has encouraged her to speak her mind and To use her platform before going full Cardi and saying that since she pays so much in taxes she’ll 100% use her voice just how she wants to.

But Cardi has never been a stranger to sharing her political views.

Cardi, no stranger to a viral moment online, hasn’t shied away from sounding off on politics, whether that means questioning how her tax money is being spent, discussing the repercussions of President Donald Trump’s government shutdown or showing support for Rep. Ilhan Omar in the face of racist attacks.

True Cardi fans (or Bardi gang as they refer to themselves), however, know that Cardi’s interest in politics has been longtime and spurred by a deep love of history, something that was confirmed by her high school history teacher, who noted on social media that not only did Cardi take her AP Government class, but that she was proud of her for using her platform to speak about issues that matter.

She was out there endorsing candidates even before the 2016 election.

Even back in 2016, “Daddy Bernie” had the rapper’s support.

And it seems like Bernie Sanders is totally on board with the support he’s gotten from Cardi.

In an interview with MSCNB, Bernie said he was grateful for her support and shared that they’ve actually had one on one chats to discuss important issues facing the country today.

He also praised Cardi B for her interest in politics and knowledge of American history.

Cardi B was also one of the first to come to the defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

After chants of “send her home” at a Trump rally, Cardi B was quick to take to Instagram to show her support for Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN). The congresswoman was the target of the racist chants and also one of the targets of Trump’s racist tweets. But Cardi B wasn’t having any of it.

Even ABC News has admitted that Cardi B’s voice carries a lot of weight.

Never underestimate the voice of a strong woman.

Although Cardi may be taking some heat from people upset about her sharing her views, she’s algo getting a lot of support on social media.

Most comments on social media say they’re not usually happy when celebs try and get involved in politics. But many were absolutely stanning for Cardi B – a strong willed, fierce, Afro-Latina woman sharing her views on politics and speaking her mind. And that is something I think we can all get behind.
