People keep being so shocked that Cardi B is political, but she’s been this way for a while now! In an earlier entry we’ve covered her incredible knowledge of the New Deal policies of FDR and love of Bernie Sanders (with her iconic quote, “Vote for Daddy Bernie, Bitch!”, which I believe would have made an incredible campaign slogan for the beloved leftist politician), but now the rapper and newly crowned twerk artist (Twerktist?) has made another splash in the political field with her Instagram video of her calling for an end to the government shutdown currently robbing thousands of government employees of their paychecks.
I mean, when you ignore the needs of Cardi B, then what else is there for us in this rotting husk of a putrid world?
The video has Cardi B saying: Hey, y’all. I just wanna remind you because it’s been a bit over three weeks, okay? It’s been a little bit over three weeks. Trump is now ordering, as in summonsing, federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid. Now I don’t wanna hear y’all motherfuckers talking about, “Oh, but Obama shut down the government for seventeen days.” Yeah, bitch! For health care! So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you bitches could go check y’all pussy at the gynecologist with no motherfucking problem. Now I know a lot of y’all don’t care because y’all don’t work for the government, or y’all probably don’t even have a job, but this shit is really fucking serious, bro. This shit is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now, all for a fucking wall. And we need to really take this serious—I feel like we need to take some action. I don’t know what type of action, bitch, because this is not what I do. But bitch, I’m scared. This is crazy. And I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to fucking work to not get motherfucking paid.
Cardi B is now the moral voice of the country, and the entire statement is peppered with her signature Cardi B humor. Fantastic.
As for the shut down, currently Mitch McConnell is blocking a vote in the Senate that would pass to reopen the government that, again, is currently being held hostage to force the democrats to spend untold money on a wall that no one really needs or wants. What a miracle and blessing this entire reality is.
