Cardi B and Bernie Sanders just sat down for another one-on-one interview on Instagram Live. The rapper tackled pressing topics from Covid-19, to the youth vote and the candidacy of Joe Biden, and fans are loving her for it.
On Tuesday, Cardi and Sanders tuned in to Instagram Live from their respective quarantines during the coronavirus. Cardi prefaced the interview by saying, “I hope that all the viewers have a better understanding of what’s going on.” She then asked, “A lot of people like the youth, they don’t rock with Joe Biden, because he’s conservative. I want you to explain to my platform, why are you endorsing him?”
Bernie spoke to Biden’s merits over Trump and vowed to “work with Joe” to make him more progressive, taking on the challenge of raising the minimum wage to at least $15 per house, canceling student debt, and moving him in the “right direction” on immigration and criminal justice reform.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper got emotional speaking of Trump’s poor handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. “They put capitalism, money, trading, goods, before our health,” she said holding back tears. The 78-year-old politician agreed that more needs to be done to support all the laid-off workers. “Congress has got to be bold and stand up for those workers.”
The pair also shared a few light-hearted moments, like when Cardi joked about the state of Bernie’s nails in quarantine. “I can tell you’ve been in quarantine for a while now, with those nails. It’s okay, Uncle Bernie.” Fans are loving their dynamic and have shared gushing reactions to the live-streamed interview. Scroll down to see what people are saying.
