Cardi B considers politics

Cardi B is a woman who wears many hats - rapper, actor, TV personality, fashion icon (for some people at least), entrepreneur, wife, and mom are just a few of the titles she can lay claim to. Now, she's apparently got her sights set on something else: Congresswoman.

The 27-year-old artist recently tweeted about her political aspirations, stating that she felt she could really "shake the table."

iamcardib @iamcardib I think I want to be a politician.I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Goverment

iamcardib @iamcardib Like I was watching War http://documentaries.No matter how many weapons a country have you need people ! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American.

 iamcardib @iamcardib 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 .

While this is the first time that Cardi has publicly put out any desire to become a politician herself, she's certainly never shied away from political discussion in the past. She famously endorsed and campaigned for Sen. Bernie Sanders during the 2016 election, referring to him as "Daddy Bernie."

Cardi is also supporting Sanders' 2020 Presidential bid, and even interviewed him personally:

 iamcardib ✔ @iamcardib I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I’m really sad how we let him down in 2016 This man been fighting for equal rights,HUMAN rights for such along time.Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign.

Sanders even gave her a shoutout during his rounds on the late-night TV circuit:


She's also previously called out President Donald Trump over a number of issues, most notably the government shutdown:

According to Cardi, her favorite subject in school was history and she was even in the advanced placement classes before she ended up dropping out. 

Still, there were obviously plenty of users on Twitter who's responses to Cardi's desire to run basically amounted to "Please don't."

 Steph - Text TRUMP to 88022 @steph93065 Replying to  @iamcardib I’m sure you can work that out in Nigeria. Good luck

 6 inches is enough @ExtendoBans Replying to  @iamcardib

Hilariously, one of the criticisms many conservatives hurled at her was that her poor spelling and grammar were potentially disqualifying:

Replying to  @iamcardib You can’t even form a correct sentence or spell “Government” right, but you think you know better than everyone else? ‍♀️

Considering these are the same folks who will cheer any 3:00 am tweet by President Best Words, I'd probably take that particular critique with a grain of salt.

Of course, there were also plenty of folks who were more than enthusiastic about Congresswoman Cardi:

QUE PERRA LA CARDI ‼️ fan account @iamcardie Replying to  @iamcardib WASHPOPPIN AMERICA

Love it or hate it, there's definitely at least one thing we can all agree on when it comes to this issue:
