The dynamic duo teamed up Tuesday night for an Instagram Live interview that was as bizarre as it was strategic. But, mostly, it was a vehicle for Cardi to vent to her beloved “Uncle Bernie.”
The interview started with Bernie — who in January encouraged Cardi to jump into politics — asking Cardi how his nails look. The rapper quickly shot back with her trademark wit, saying she can tell he’s been in quarantine. Hilarious.
But, then things got downright serious … Cardi teed off on 45 — she refused to mention Trump by name — saying 45 doesn’t need any help from Democrats to make himself look bad cause he makes himself look bad. Ouch.
Cardi — an ardent Bernie supporter — also took the opportunity to ask why uncle Bernie endorsed Joe Biden for president. Or … as she framed it, “A lot of people like the youth, they don’t rock with Joe Biden. I want you to explain to my platform, why are you endorsing him?”
And, there’s the answer to why Bernie hopped on IG Live with Cardi, who has nearly 63M followers — she provided a platform where Bernie can plea to his supporters to back Biden.
One day I’ll tell my grandchildren about the time I gaffe taped Bernie Sanders’ iPad to a cushion so he could talk with his hands while live streaming with Cardi B. pic.twitter.com/ggbqNBW7BM
