Tomi Lahren And Cardi B’s Twitter Beef Over The Wall Brought In the Bardi Gang And It Was Lit
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’s tweet 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…@JArm0220 / Twitter
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.@iamcardib / Twitter
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.@iamcardib / Twitter

She brought all our chonis into the mix.@iamcardib / Twitter
“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.@Just_Catia / Twitter
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 !”@iamcardib / Twitter
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.@iamcardib / Twitter

I bow to you, Cardi.
Of course, some big name conservative pundits had some things to say about Cardi.@TomiLahren / Twitter
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.@aboogiewitda1sie / Twitter
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.@iamcardib / Twitter
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.@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.”@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.@lysbird / Twitter
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.@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 / Twitter
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.@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.@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:@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.@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:@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.
