The internet’s most famous political commentator, Cardi B, did not hold back when it came to expressing her opinions of Tuesday night’s presidential debate.
The rapper, who is known almost as much for her political activism as she is for her music career, took to Instagram to give live commentary on the hectic debate (which was widely-regarded as a “sh*t show”)
Throughout the series of videos posted to her Instagram account, Cardi raged at the television, loudly refuting Trump’s lies and condemning his un-presidential behavior.
She also relayed a special message directed specifically at Joe Biden and his team, in which she told him he needed to get “spicy” to combat Trump’s bullying behavior.
“I’m letting y’all know right now: tell Joe to get aggressive. When [Trump] talks over Joe, he better start like, ‘Excuse me! I’m talking. I’m talking!'” she advised. “Don’t let this man pick on you. He just wanna do a show. So you gonna give him a show. Give him a show! This is your time to shine, Joe! Kamala Harris, she used to get spicy in the debates. You better get spicy!”
Cardi’s video series on the debate covered everything from the economy…
After Trump began to brag about how he “built the greatest economy in history,” Cardi quickly set the record straight. “This is the thing about when Obama became president: the economy was already down, so all those eight years, he was building it up,” she explained. “So when [Trump] became president, the sh–t was already good.”
To police reform…
She agreed with Biden’s assertion that “the vast majority of police officers are good, honorable, decent people.” “People are trying to make it seem like people hate cops,” she said. “Nobody hates cops. We just hate the bad cops. There’s gotta be something to fix the bad cops, like a law.”
Of course, Cardi was still very heated at the recent news that President Trump only paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016. She became infuriated when Trump claimed the report wasn’t true. “That’s the wrong answer!” she screamed. “You tell him that you paid $750 in taxes! I pay more than that!”
To climate change.
When asked what his stance was on climate change and environmentalism, Trump responded with a pie-in-the-sky answer saying: “I want crystal clean water and air. I want beautiful, clean air.” Cardi had none of that, responding, “So why did you cancel all those climate change plans?”
But of course, like millions of Americans, she was both frustrated and disgusted with how the debate seemed to quickly devolve into a circus.
The debate became hard to watch with Trump yelling over Biden and Wallace scrambling to keep any semblance of order. And of course, Trump ended up resorting to ad-hominem attacks and name-calling, insulting Biden’s intelligence and picking on his son, Hunter Biden, for previously struggling with drug addiction.
The latter insult especially ticked Cardi B off. “For Trump to [insult Biden for his son’s drug-use] was such a low-blow,” she said in a post-debate video. “Especially to people that have to turn to drugs for comfort. And a lot of his f—–g supporters turn to that s–t as well, so that was so unnecessary and gross.”
At the end of her Instagram tirade, Cardi posted an exhausted-sounding video saying: “I wish that Joe Biden would’ve spoken to me before that debate because I would’ve told him to roast [Trump’s] ass. And I got jokes under my belt.” Who knows? Maybe Biden will take her up on her offer for the next debate!
And of course, Cardi topped off the debate recap with an Instagram caption that we can all get behind: “PLEASE WE GOTTA GO VOTE!”
