Democrats are celebrating their newest spokesperson — a former stripper-turned-rapper responsible for the highly controversial hit, “WAP.” Cardi B landed her Elle magazine interview with Joe Biden in August — an appearance that should have gone to the mainstream media instead, but I digress. The entertainer is not known for having a prolific political stance or any background in civics or government. And she’s certainly not an intellectual.
No, Cardi B represents the lowest common denominator of hood culture known only for her ginormous popularity among young people. Conservative firebrand and BLEXIT cofounder Candace Owens brought this fact to light during a recent social media sound off between the two women.
What ignited the fiery interaction was Owens’s interview with Ben Shapiro, as Owens shared the painful truth with Cardi B that the Democrat Party is only latched to her for her audience. When she heard about the interview, Cardi B lashed out to her Instagram followers to brag about her musical influence, platform, and reach — further reinforcing Owens’s point about the rapper’s lack of political intellect. In a rare Instagram stream, Owens opens up to expose Cardi’s weakest links, which were very clear for her millions of viewers to see.
Cardi has professed her desire to understand politics in previous videos, but it appears she hasn’t tried very hard to educate herself about the subject. Instead of meeting Owens’s commentary with humility and self-reflection, Cardi predictably doubled down on her ignorance, becoming emotional and angry.
This very scenario echoes the many interactions I’ve had with mobs of angry black progressives who have nothing to offer to the political arena but vulgar insults and ego-fueled responses. If I could open my email inbox for the world to see, you would see many of the same crude and disgusting words used by Cardi B — probably from her own fanbase.
Conservatives — armed with a compassionate message of Liberty and hope for our nation — are often met on the battlefield with forked tongues from leftists and radical progressives. Owens, who tried to explain to Cardi what she could brush up on, most certainly received backlash for being used by the “white man.” But yes, let us all forget that Biden chose to interview with Cardi B. We can be assured that it was for votes from her fanbase and not to actually hear what she had to say.
After all, why Cardi B? Why not interview Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms or even Stacey Abrams?
The fact that Biden has been hiding explains much, as his declining cognitive state won’t allow him to answer any deep, thought-provoking questions. So, what better way to rile up voters than to interview with a popular entertainer who is also too ignorant to ask the hard questions? Any serious voter should be concerned.
If Cardi B could rub two and two together, she’d probably understand what Owens is saying — that accepting the interview at all was a complete and utter insult to her and also her fanbase. The Biden interview was Exhibit A of how Democrats celebrate the lowest common denominator of American culture.
On the contrary, Diddy, another entertainer, tweeted something earlier this year that was quite politically sound. He stated, “THE BLACK VOTE WILL NOT BE FREE THIS YEAR,” urging black Americans to demand more from presidential candidates.
From Diddy’s video back in April: “The Black vote is not going to be for free. We’re going to have to see some promises. What are we getting in return for our vote? Nothing has changed for Black America. In order for us to vote for [Joe Biden], we can’t be taken for granted like we always are because we’re supposed to be Democrats or because people are afraid of Trump.”
THE BLACK VOTE WILL NOT BE FREE THIS YEAR.

Anyone who knows about Diddy knows he has been invested in the political scene for years with his “Vote or Die” campaign. And while I’m not a fan of his music, he is knowledgeable and on top of the subject matter, holding forums, town halls, and debates regularly among prolific members of black entertainment. Perhaps Biden could have interviewed with Diddy instead. Or am I dreaming?
