Cardi B knows how to host a quarantine Instagram live session properly. With her new blue hair, blue nails, and mango in hand, Cardi B had a lively chat with Sen. Bernie Sanders and talked about it all. The Bronx rapper who’s been a die-hard Sanders supporter told him that she was quite disappointed that he dropped out of the presidential race, but first, she made sure to compliment his nails.
“Uncle Bernie! Big Booty got uncle Bernie in my life!” Cardi said excitedly. “Uncle Bernie, how you doing?” Then Sen. Sanders asked Cardi. “I’m good Cardi, I want you to take a look at my nails. How are they looking?” She responded by saying, “I can tell you’ve been in quarantine quite a while now by your nails, but you know what, it’s okay.”
Then the two got really into politics. Cardi told Sen. Sanders she was sad he was out of the presidential race. “I don’t know if anybody told you, but the last time I got on Live, I had a fit because I was so hurt and upset that you dropped out of the race.” She added that she understood why he had to drop out and said, “I keep telling the youth, you guys really have to go and vote. Now we’re stuck between 45—we’re not going to name him over here—and Joe Biden.”
Cardi dropped some poignant words when she said, “One thing is, like the youth, they don’t really rock with Joe Biden because he’s conservative,” but Sen. Sanders said he would have supported any Democratic candidate, no matter what. “Donald Trump, in my mind, is the most dangerous president in the modern history of America,” Sen. Sanders said. “What I’m also trying to do right now cards is to work with Joe to see that he becomes a more progressive candidate.”
Sen. Sanders also added that he believes Biden will progress into a candidate that we can all get behind, saying, “I would go further in all of these areas than he goes, but he is moving in the right direction,” Sen. Sanders said. “He’s moving the right direction on immigration reform, and I think you’ll be pleased with what he has to stay. I think you’ll be hearing him make some pretty strong statements on criminal justice reform.”
