Cardi B and Fox News' Tomi Lahren Feud on Twitter Over Government Shutdown
Tomi Lahren was not ready for Cardi B.'s smoke.
Outspoken rap star, Cardi B., was not in the mood for Tomi Lahren's antagonistic shenanigans. And she told her so via Twitter.
Cardi B has set political circles ablaze with her scorching criticism of President Trump and his part in the partial government shutdown. Her name is still falling from the mouths of politicians and now race-baiting "Fox Nation" "personality" Tomi Lahren. Apparently, Lahren gave her unsolicited two cents after Cardi's commentary went viral. She took to Twitter to sound off on the Grammy-winning rapper by sarcastically calling her a "genius."
That was not a good idea. Lahren, clearly, was unaware of Cardi's clapback game. The superstar stated five simple words: "I will dog walk you."
Urban Twitter went wild at Cardi's roasting of Lahren. Various news outlets and "in the know" progressives took to the Urban Dictionary to "tell the masses" what "dog walk" means. They were wrong. They incorrectly Columbused the definition to mean "to dominate over."
But in urban settings, "Dog walk" means "mollywhop" someone. To folks, who still may be at a loss, it means to fight her and win. Of course, violence isn't the answer when dealing with Lahren.
However, Lahren's constant insertion in places she doesn't belong has been well-tracked. And Cardi B. isn't one to back down.
Twitter had some hilarious commentary on the fabulously-delivered clapback.
Even Bronx-born, Yorktown-raised Newly elected congresswoman, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented:
It appears everybody had time for Lahren after her ill-fated tweet. It does lead one to wonder if she even knew who Cardi B. was before she opened her mouth. The likely guess would be no.
"I am the descendant of African slaves. I am the descendant of Indigenous people. I am the descendant of Spanish colonizers," explained Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in an MSNBC interview.
Conversations around race and ethnicity have been prominent in the media because of the onslaught of diverse newly elected public officials. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is one of them. In an interview on MSNBC, she addressed her heritage with respect to her race.
"The LGBTQ is a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan, without wearing hoods with their antics of hate," said West Virginia delegate Eric Porterfield.
The interaction between Gayle King and Ralph Northam should have led to a bigger discussion.
"I think that many times white people do not understand what blackface means," Sellers said.
The photo on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's medical school yearbook page of a man in blackface and another man dressed in a KKK costume is sparking a national conversation. The racist act of wearing blackface goes back to the mid-19th century. It's 2019 and Black people still have to explain why it's offensive.
Update: White Powder, A Witness, and Photos Have All Been Uncovered in the Jussie Smollett Attack Investigation
The perpetrators have yet to be identified but police are collecting information about individuals that were in the area at the time of the attack.
The FBI and Chicago PD are investigating the attack of Empire actor Jussie Smollett and have new leads.
Chicago police said an envelope with white powder and a threatening letter with magazine cut outs pasted on paper was received at Cinespace Studios, where Empire is filmed, on January 22.
HAZMAT responded, but the white substance turned out to be aspirin.
Police have released photos of two individuals wanted for questioning.
Video of Smollett walking into a hotel after the attack with a noose around his neck, along with the noose and his sweater have also been acquired to help try to identify more clues to find the attackers.
Smollett said he was on the phone with his manager when the attack happened.
Smollett family's statement said this was a "violent and unprovoked attack," and "a racial and homophobic hate crime."
A witness, who requested anonymity, described a "creepy" white man outside the building with a clothesline hanging from his pants, staring at another man near another entrance about 300 hundred feet away.
She told TMZ, "He looked out of place." He had scruff on his face, wearing a blue winter beanie, a blue zip-up sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans that were too short. He had "thick, grey hunting socks" with camel-colored dress shoes.
She talked to detectives when she found out there was an attack.
