Cardi B has weighed in on the government shutdown in a furious, profanity-charged rant posted to her Instagram stories.
The rapper, 26, said the country was ‘in a hell hole’ Wednesday after learning the Trump administration had summoned federal employees to return to work without pay.
Cardi expressed compassion for the numerous federal employees impacted by the shutdown, which is now in it’s fourth week.
Hey y’all, I just want to remind you because it’s been a little bit over three weeks, okay!? It’s been a little bit over three weeks, Trump is now ordering… federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid!
Cardi found the reason behind the shutdown unacceptable, and said there was a big difference between the current shutdown and the one which occurred in 2013 during the Obama administration.
‘Now, I don’t want to hear y’all motherf**kers talking about, “Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days.” Yeah b**ch! For healthcare!
‘So your grandma can check her blood pressure, and you b*tches can go check your p*ssy at the gynecologist with no motherf**king problem!‘
Though she admitted she wasn’t qualified to lead a movement, she urged fans to ‘take some action’ in light of the current events.
She also expressed serious concerns about the state of the country, calling it ‘in a hell hole.’
