Feeling the Bern

Cardi B backs Bernie Sanders

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is making money moves, and they aren't even subject to his often touted wealth taxes.

In a Tuesday tweet, rapper Cardi B said she's been "reading about Bernie Sanders" and felt that "we let him down in 2016." After all, Sanders has "been fighting for equal rights, human rights for such a long time," Cardi continued. And well, she likes it like that.

A Twitter user responded to Cardi B's endorsement to point out she's complained about paying taxes in the past, seeing as Sanders' policies would likely lead to more of them. But Cardi noted she only has an issue with having no idea where her tax dollars end up.

The several conservatives who praised Cardi B's supposedly conservative tax stances may want to reconsider their support, especially after Sanders gratefully accepted Cardi's. Kathryn Krawczyk
