Cardi B over the few days has made two things definitely clear: she’ll never back down from telling it as it is and do not come looking for her trouble.

Right after the release of the Twerk music video by the City Girls which she is featured on, the I Like It rapper took to her Instagram page to voice her displeasure with the ongoing government shutdown and how it’s affecting thousands of federal workers who haven’t been paid for several weeks and called for the problem to be solved.

Take a look at what she had to to say below: 

Conservative and Fox News host Tomi Lahren took issue with the rapper exercising her freedom of speech and called her out in a rather condescending manner via a tweet.

“Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys!” she tweeted.

The Bronx native clapped back with a very epic reply:

“Leave me alone I will dog walk you. Cardi replied.

Tomi refused to back down:

“I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic.” she countered.

Cardi then proceeded to tell Tomi her piece of mind:

“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. You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!”

Clearly at the losing end, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came into the picture throwing some well-deserved shade at Tomi:

“Why do people think they can mess with Bronx women without getting roasted?” she tweeted. “They act as though our borough hasn’t been perfecting the clapback game since the Sugarhill Gang (laughing emoji) y’all just found it on Twitter (sic).”

Tomi then started playing victim claiming Cardi was violent but no one was having it because she started it:

“Aren’t you the same girl who whines about Trump inciting violence? Now you applaud it because it’s against a female conservative you disagree with politically? Convenient. P.S. I do fully acknowledge @iamcardib is smarter than YOU.”

Just on Tuesday, while minding her business, another conservative columnist, Stephanie Hamill, called her out. Her issue; the Twerk video sexually objectfifies women:

“In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib, feel free to chime in.”

As usual, Cardi clapped back:

“It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do (whatever) I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks (sic).” she replied.

Conceding defeat, Hamill, out of nowhere, concurred with her and replied rather hypocritically:

“I agree, No means NO, NO MATTER what!” she wrote. “But this video, & others like this sexually objectify women. I think this hurts all women & the cause. We’re not sex OBJECTS! Clearly we see things differently, (maybe I’m just a hater because I can’t Twerk) Come on my show, debate me! (sic).”

In a following Tweet, Cardi B spoke about her recent “Twitter run-ins” with conservatives and how their president’s behaviour is having a negative impact on the country.

“All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days. Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is f*ckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens. (sic)” she tweeted.

From the look of things, Tomi, Hamill and probably other Trump fans won’t come looking for Cardi’s trouble anytime soon.
