With the 2020 presidential election looming, rapper Cardi B had a candid conversation with Joe Biden about the stuff that matters.
In an interview in partnership with Elle Magazine, Cardi B took the opportunity to sit down with presidential candidate Joe Biden to discuss the stuff that matters: including COVID 19, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the importance of universal healthcare and education.
The rapper, who was a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary, was not shy in putting forward her requests to Biden – should he be elected.
The unlikely pair sat down for the conversation, taking place over Zoom, and appeared to be chums from the start.
Biden kicked off the discussion by ensuring the pair were on a first-name basis, introducing Cardi B to his daughter and congratulating the star on making the Elle cover.
Biden then asked Cardi B which issues matter most to her, to which she replied, “I have a whole list of things that I want and I wish and I desire for our next president to root for us.” She then added, “But first, I just want Trump out. His mouth gets us in trouble so much.”
The WAP star was not shy in listing these demands, including free college tuition, free Medicare, and “laws that are fair to Black citizens and that are fair for cops, too” – with which Biden was in agreeance.
In response, Biden described that there was “no reason why we can’t have all of that. Presidents have to take responsibility.”
The frank conversation also saw Biden vow to own up to any mistakes he might make should he be elected, in keeping with his promise of honesty in government; to which Cardi B responded: “I’d like to see that.”
Of course, some were not in support of the interview, including former congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine, who eluded to the singer’s past as a stripper.
However, others pointed out that Cardi B being a former stripper does not invalidate her opinions – of which, she has proved, she has plenty.
