Cardi B wants to be a politician: ‘I can shake the table’
This isn’t the first time Cardi has been vocal about politics. She openly endorsed Bernie Sanders for presidency in July 2019.
Cardi B has her sights set for politics.
In a series of tweets spanning multiple days, the rapper has discussed running for office and how she would tackle issues like gun control.
“I think I want to be a politician.I really love government even tho (sic) I don’t agree with Goverment (sic),” she tweeted Sunday.
The following day, she got a bit more specific on her political aspirations.
“I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress. I (expletive) have sooo much ideas that make sense,” she tweeted. “I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”
She received some flack for her comments: Cardi responded to one woman who tweeted, “my cat is more qualified to run for Congress than Cardi B.”
Still, the rapper opened up the floor for “friendly debates” on Tuesday. One issue that was raised: gun control.
“Listen, I do believe we have the right to bare arms however I do believe in order to get a gun we should get mental check ups, proper training and a (sic) older age limit to own one,” she said. “If the proper age limit to drinking is 21 because these kids can’t handle their liquor how can they...Possibly get the responsibility to own a gun ? .....is that fair ?”
