Stripper-turned-rapper Cardi B seems a tad steamed over her favorite 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The 27-year-old entertainer from the Bronx, New York, raged against young voters, blaming them for failing the Democratic Socialist and for making it harder to prevent a second term of President Trump.
The rapper got on social media to berate her fans who didn’t listen to her and other hip music acts’ instructions to ignite the American socialist revolution. Really. though, how else was thing going to turn out?
Miss B, who endorsed the Sanders campaign in summer 2019, announced the news of Sanders dropping out on her Instagram account. She berated Bernie supporters and called them “liars.” “I'm really upset at everybody, because as you guys know... Bernie dropped out of the race. I see a lot of young people on the Internet always lying. Y'all motherfuckers, y'all young motherfuckers.” Yeah, there’s that stunning political charisma.
Cardi continued, saying that Bernie supporters have made her sick. “I'm getting sick of y'all. Like I'm getting sick of y'all. I'm about to start hanging out with my grandma's friends,” she said, referencing the fact that older folks are far and away the demographic that gets out to the polls the most.
“Y'all wasn't voting, y'all wasn't voting... what the fuck was up with that?” Cardi demanded to know. The fact that there was so much enthusiasm among young people for the Soviet-admiring candidate and they still didn’t vote just really reinforces that stereotype. Miss B lamented that free college will never happen because the people who want it don’t go to the polls.
“People that don't give a fuck about going to college. Those are the people that are voting. Those are the people that are voting and because of that, that means Bernie is out of the motherfucking race.” She then admitted that they all “gotta go for Biden,” whom she admitted she doesn’t know too much about, but she claimed she would start “researching him.”
Of course, despite knowing nothing about Biden, a Trump vote for Cardi would be impossible. She ranted like a Trump second term was the end of the world. “I do not want 45 [Trump] to be president again, now y'all this shit is very fucking serious," she said. "Right now? The state that America is in? We got no time to fucking play around.”
She then mentioned how it would be a nightmare if Trump was president during a recession: “You really got to think about yourself. Right now we're about to motherfucking go through another recession… And guess what? Do you really want 45 to be in charge of the recession?"
This is just a small taste of why Bernie could never win. Somehow a socialist is the right choice to man a recession over the guy who oversaw one of the greatest economic periods in history? No thanks, Cardi. Thank heavens the kiddos stayed home this time around.
