Cardi B Quotes Used to Protest President Trump at 2019 Women’s March
The annual Women's March took place on Saturday (Jan. 19) in Washington D.C. and despite not going to the event, Cardi B was well represented.
Thousands of people flooded The District to march and peacefully protest for women's rights and show their opposition to President Trump's government shutdown. A number of people sported signs that featured quotes from the "I Like It" rapper's recent political rant, where she went off on Trump and the shutdown, and her song lyrics.
"This shit is fucking serious, bro," one sign read.
"Us bad bitches is a gift from gawd," another one noted.
"I can’t believe how many posters of me where made at Womensmarch In DC ! I wish I was there :’) I’m so honored," Cardi captioned pictures of people with signs with her words plastered on them. In 2017, protestors at the Women's March were spotted using signs with Khia lyrics.
Last week, Cardi sounded off on President Trump and the government shutdown that has left a percentage of the population working without pay.
"Trump is now ordering federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid," she said on Instagram. "I don't wanna hear y'all muthafuckas talking about, 'Oh, Obama shut down the government for 17 days,' yeah bitch, for federal healthcare. So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you bitches could go check your pussies at gynecologists with no muthafuckin' problem. Now, I know a lot of y'all don't care 'cause y'all don't work for the government or y'all don't have a job. But this shit is really fuckin' serious bro. This shit is crazy. Our country is in a hell hole right now. We really need to take this shit serious."
The video wound up catching the attention of U.S. senators who mulled over retweeting the message.
On Sunday morning (Jan. 20), Bardi exchanged jabs with Fox News political pundit Tomi Lahren. "You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much," Cardi tweeted. "You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!"
