Sure, when most people think of Cardi B, they think of a fierce female MC with deep roots in the Bronx who has multiple No.1 singles. But her die-hard fans know that she’s just as passionate about politics as she is about spitting bars.
Cardi B has been vocal about her passion for politics for as long as she’s been in the spotlight, but she’s especially made her voice heard in the most recent election. Whether its interviewing candidates or live-commenting on presidential debates, our girl is fully committed to practicing her civic duties.
Take a look at our round-up of all the times that Cardi B was politically active in this most recent election cycle!
Before the primary election really started to heat up in 2019, Cardi B was just a “regular shmegular” celebrity endorsing Democratic candidates for president.
That didn’t sit well with conservative commentator Tomi Lahren who took to Twitter to try and diss her.
Cardi hit back at Tomi Lahren with this legendary comment:
Suddenly being “dog walked” was a term that both CNN and Fox were having to describe to their middle-aged viewers. And the latest election cycle officially began!
Before the election was Biden versus Trump, it was all the democrats versus…all the democrats. In 2019, Cardi B endorsed “Daddy Bernie” for the democratic candidate.
She then interviewed Bernie Sanders in collaboration with his campaign:
Flash forward to 2020 and Cardi was making headlines for an innocent tweet she wrote that she was considering getting into politics.
Naturally, her fans were already printing “Cardi B for President” shirts.
Next, our two favorite Latinas from the Bronx–Cardi B and AOC–both bonded on social media over their shared love of WAP (women as president).
Let’s hope these two do more collabing soon.
Cardi B and Joe Biden had a Zoom interview where they discussed issues that were important to her and her fan base.
During the interview, her and Biden covered everything from Medicare for all, for free college education for all, to ending policy brutality and systemic racism.
And when conservatives tried to come at Cardi B for being “an illiterate rapper” who has no business interviewing Joe Biden, she shut them down:
“It’s not a secret I use my platform to encourage people to vote,” Cardi responded in a now-deleted Instagram video. “I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the Number One song in this country…Just like I can make millions of people pop their p—y, I can make millions of people go vote.”
And of course, Cardi B has been giving blow-by-blow commentary for every excruciating second of both the Presidential and Vice Presidential debates.
As one of Cardi’s Instagram commenters so astutely put it: “Cardi B for the next debate moderator!”. Here, here!
