You know it is time to panic when your government is under a shutdown and you’ve got to get to work – and not get paid. On top of that, your president is the butt of a new meme early in the new year after buying 1000 ‘hamberders’ for a visiting football team. It is in times like these when you need popular figures stepping up and weighing in on the matter. In a viral video rant on Instagram, rapper Cardi B criticized the Donald Trump administration for the shutdown – all for a wall.
The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, lashed out at the government and added that she felt sorry for the federal workers who had to go to work and get no payment in return. Cardi B also pointed out to her followers to not use the 17-day shutdown during Barack Obama’s regime to defend Trump. She clarified that the shutdown during Obama’s term was because he was fighting for healthcare. “Yeah, b*tch – [that shutdown was] for healthcare,” she said. “So your grandma could go check her blood pressure.”
