Cardi B could be headed to the White House one day — but first, she might try her hand at local government … or perhaps, something in the middle.
The rapper tweeted Sunday what seemed to be a pretty serious idea of hers … “I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Goverment [sic].”
She followed up with an explainer, saying … “No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American.”
Seems Cardi’s talking about the U.S.-Iran conflict here. She finished by saying there’s more she has to say on the subject and acknowledged she would have to do it later in a video. Unclear if that means Iran specifically, or politics in general. Stay tuned …
Either way, this isn’t coming out of the clear blue sky — CB’s had her head in politics for a good while now and has certainly been outspoken on certain issues … including social security, fighting the big drug companies, education and chiming in on POTUS candidates.
Notably, she’s been a big Bernie Sanders supporter and even interviewed him in a sit-down special where she covered some dense topics. Besides that, Bernie himself seems to be a fan of how interested and concerned she seems to be in the cause … he digs it.
Cardi has circled the idea of getting into politics, and now … it looks like she’s seriously considering taking that dive. The question now — would she have a real shot in City Hall, Capitol Hill or even, dare we say, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue??? Some think so.
