It seems like everybody who is even remotely famous believes they would make a great politician.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says he wouldn’t rule out running for president seemingly during every press tour for a movie, which is several times a year. And Scarlett Johansson claimed last year she might run for Congress in the near future.
But a line must be drawn when Sen. Bernie Sanders claims to think this criminal rapper would make a great congresswoman.
These Democratic candidates for president have the most outlandish and grossly impractical ideas that we’ve ever seen in American history.
Two of the furthest left of the Democratic candidates, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, think you’re entitled to education and health care for free. And the furthest left candidate, Andrew Yang, wants to give everybody $1,000 a month even though it’s economically impossible.
But watching Sanders and Warren recently – both leaders of the Democratic Party and towards the top of the nominee for president list – quarrel with each other recently has been one of the funniest parts of this election season.
It’s reminiscent of the battle between Sen. Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton back in 2016 where supporters of each of these candidates’ supporters despised the other.
Last week, the two Democratic leaders greeted each other on stage before the debate and Warren flat-out called Sanders a liar. They are supposed to be allies and friends in the “fight” to unseat President Trump, right? It looks like bad blood and grudges between two old friends. And that’s the perfect metaphor for the state of the Democratic Party.
Even celebrities are divided amongst which candidate they want to go up against Trump. They’re bickering at each other over things they accuse Republicans of like sexism. It’s quite amusing.
However, when that happens, celebrities feel like they want to get involved beyond just voting for their candidate, fundraising, or charity work. They want to run for office, as is the case with prolific American rapper Cardi B.
The 27-year-old has earned three number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 in her short five-year career.
Cardi B tweeted recently, “I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Goverment [sic],”
She added, “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress. I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”
Cardi B has been adamant on running over the last couple of weeks and has posted videos on her social media about her ill-informed thoughts on taxes and the military.
And Vermont Sen. Sanders believes she should run too.
Sanders wrote in a statement, “Cardi B is deeply concerned about what’s happening in the country. She knows what it’s like to live in poverty and struggle, and it would be great for her to bring that experience to politics.”
But Cardi B isn’t a role model. The “Money” rapper admitted to drugging and then robbing men who wanted to have sex with her while she worked as a stripper before she became famous.
She admitted this on a three-year-old Instagram live video and when it resurfaced late last year, Cardi B said, “Whether or not they were poor choices at the time, I did what I had to do to survive. I never claimed to be perfect or come from a perfect world.”
A lot of people survive by getting jobs and if she was a stripper, a legal form of employment, then drugging and robbing men was just added income.
Also, Cardi B is currently facing legal issues where she allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders in Queens, New York.
In June, a jury indicted her on 14 charges, including two counts of felony assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. Her court case is still pending right now.
Basically, Sen. Sanders just endorsed a criminal to run for Congress and is using her race and gender to gain favoritism amongst women and minorities.
