Cardi B, leader of the free world, has weighed in on the government shutdown. The “Money” rapper took to Instagram on January 16th to share her political musings about the shutdown, which is well into its fourth week now. In the post, Cardi promotes her new video for her song “Twerk” with City Girls, but not before expressing her grievances with the Trump administration.
She continues, “This shit is serious, bro. This shit is crazy. Our country is in a hellhole right now, all for a fuckin’ wall. And we really need to take this seriously. I feel like we need to take some action…I’m scared. This is crazy. And I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to fuckin’ work to not get motherfuckin’ paid.”

The rapper is, of course, referencing the current federal government shutdown, which is the longest in U.S. history. The shutdown, which took effect on December 22nd, stemmed from disagreements over border wall funding. Experts are predicting that it could very well extend into February. As of today, Trump has signed a bill that ensures federal workers affected by the shutdown will receive proper pay.
We stan a politically woke queen.
