When it comes to politics, Cardi B is well-versed and often sounds off via her social media about what the shenanigans of the American Government. Putting in her two cents about matters like health care and the government shutdown has earned her an invitation to the Iowa Caucus for the Democratic Party.
The “Be Careful” rapper received the invite via the The Polk County Democrats’ Twitter account.
“As the center of the IA Caucuses, we have been honored to host @TeamPelosi, @CecileRichards, @KamalaHarris, @SenGillibrand, @PramilaJayapal, @Grace4NY, and many powerful women leaders. It only makes sense to invite @iamcardib to a reception of her choice while she’s here in May,” read the tweet.
Bardi will be stopping in Des Moines, IA in May while on tour.
“We are definitely serious about this,” Sean Bagniewski, the Polk County Democrats chair told the Des Moines Register. “She speaks to the new activism in the Democratic Party,” he said. “It’s a long shot, but a little bit of her presence would go a long way.”
Cardi responded with a ponder on whether she should accept.
The Bronx spitter has been admired by politicians before. She was shouted out by 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders when she spoke out about Social Security benefits.
“Cardi B is right. If we are really going to make America great we need to strengthen Social Security so that seniors are able to retire with the dignity they deserve,” Sanders tweeted.
