Cardi B. Delivers a More Effective Speech About Trump’s Shutdown on Instagram Than Politicians

Rapper Cardi B. told her 39 million Instagram followers on Wednesday night what she really thought about President Trump’s partial government shutdown, his wall and about his absurd request to force people who aren’t getting paid to go back to work.

She didn’t
mince words (she uses explicit language in the video).

“Our country is in a hellhole right now,” she said. “All for a fing wall.”

Though filled with explicit language, it pretty much summed up what many are feeling scared. Almost 10 million people have viewed it.

She blamed Trump for backing himself into a corner with an unrealistic campaign promise:

“You promised these . . . racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible,” she said, according to the Hill.”But they voted for you and you promised them this . . . so now you have to do it.”

Before anyone could bring up Obama’s shutdown, she defended him saying the shutdown was for health care, so people could get their benefits.

Cardi B. is a self-professed news and political news junkie, and with good reason. She says she is concerned as a citizen of America.

In comparison, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s
rebuttal to Trump’s televised message last week was less direct. They spent little time on the fact that American people are hurting and more time fact-checking Trump’s lies.

Who were Pelosi and Schumer addressing or trying to motivate by fact checking We know Trump supporters are blindly following him, and the rest of the country opposes him.

Newsflash: We already know he’s a liar.

We also know that furloughed workers are suffering, and many of them are of lower economic status and people of color. But Pelosi and Schumer didn’t really expand on that.

Here are the only two instances where they talked about Americans who aren’t getting paid:

“The fact is: President Trump has chosen to hold hostage critical services for the health, safety and well-being of the American people and withhold the paychecks of 800,000 innocent workers across the nation many of them veterans,” said Pelosi.

“There is no excuse for hurting millions of Americans over a policy difference. Federal workers are about to miss a paycheck. Some families can’t get a mortgage to buy a new home. Farmers and small businesses won’t get loans they desperately need,” said Schumer.

Memes of Pelosi and Schumer exploded on the Internet, making fun of them for looking like chastising parents, a hint that many may not have taken either one of them seriously. Others called out the ineffectiveness:

Schumer and a few other politicians had an elementary school debate on whether to retweet Cardi B’s video because of her “colorful language.”

They ultimately decided it wasn’t “Senatorial.”

Meanwhile, others are praising Cardi’s comentary:

Some said on social media that Cardi B. Should run for president in 2020, as a joke, but if she did, at least we’d know we’d have someone who didn’t sugarcoat or dance around the truth and the issues. She’d go at the problem, head on.
