Anti-Trump liberal hero Cardi B is under fire, rightfully so, after an old video resurfaced where the singer admitted to drugging and robbing men she met in her past life as a stripper.
“I made the choices that I did at the time because I had very limited options” and “I did what I had to do to survive,” she explained:
All I can do now is be a better me for myself my family and my future. pic.twitter.com/VlPJW20thN

Um, that’s not how it really works:
Cardi B needs to be arrested and tried for drugging and robbing men.
Same energy. Always.

So we are making excuses for Cardi B who admitted to luring men with sex, drugging them and robbing them? Amazing isn't it?

Imagine if a male singer said this?
Cardi B and Bill Cosby are equivalent and y’all letting it slide…

And by anti-Trump liberal hero, we mean that literally. Here she is telling Trump “clown” supporters to work for free during the government shutdown to show their support:

Recall that just a few months ago, Cardi B’s political commentary was a “bright spot” for the country:
Last 35 days were painful for many. But there were bright spots:
– @iamcardib’s political commentary
– Sens Schatz, Murphy & Schumer commenting re Cardi
– @chefjoseandres, @WCKitchen & friends coming to the rescue
– @SenatorBennet dragging Ted Cruz
– Trump & co looking like fools

Stephen Colbert even suggested she give the Dem response to the SOTU:
I am starting a petition for the Democrats to let @iamcardib give the rebuttal to the SOTU. Sign it by retweeting this!

Dem Senators tripped over themselves in praise of her blunt talk on Donald Trump:

Iowa Democrats wanted to meet her, too!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even compared herself to a combination of Cardi B and Bernie Sanders:
Bernie + Cardi = @Ocasio2018

And MSNBC’s Ari Melber declared she was “right” about the recent partial government shutdown:
