Cardi B Takes a Stand: No More Political Endorsements



Cardi B, MusicXclusives

In a candid Instagram Live session on Sunday, Cardi B made a bold announcement: she will no longer endorse any presidential candidates. The renowned musician expressed her frustration with current political leadership, targeting New York Mayor Eric Adams and President Biden for their budget decisions.

Cardi’s fiery critique focused on Mayor Adams’ proposed budget cuts and President Biden’s allocation of funds to military endeavors. Displeased with the prioritization of war funding in Ukraine and Israel, she emphatically stated:

“I don’t give a f**k… I’m not endorsing no f**king presidents no more,”

The rapper questioned the government’s financial priorities, particularly Biden’s willingness to fund wars while claiming budget constraints.

“Joe Biden’s talking about, ‘Yeah, we can fund two wars. We can fund two wars.’ Motherfkers talkin’ about, ‘We don’t got it, but we got it. We’re the greatest nation.’ No, the fk we’re not! We’re going through some s**t right now.” Cardi asserted.

Cardi’s change in stance is notable, considering her 2020 interview with then-candidate Biden for ELLE, where she expressed strong opposition to Donald Trump. Trump is currently facing legal challenges, with four indictments on 91 felony charges related to alleged election interference and bookkeeping fraud.


Beyond national politics, Cardi also delved into local issues, addressing Mayor Adams’ budget cuts in New York. She highlighted concerns about the impact on schools, libraries, and sanitation, noting a $120 million cut for education and a $5 million cut for sanitation. Expressing worry about the consequences, she said:

“There’s gonna be a $120 million budget cuts, with schools, with libraries and the cops… And a $5 million budget cut in sanitation. B**ch, we are gonna be drowning in f**king rats.”

The rapper, known for her outspoken personality, expressed concern for those less fortunate, emphasizing the potential hardships for her family and friends living in the hood.

“I’m whatever the f**k, but what’s going to happen to my nieces? What’s going to happen to nephews? What’s going to happen to my cousins, my aunts, my friends that’s livin’ in the hood… B**ch, New York is already f**king super dirty.”

On the musical front, Cardi hasn’t let her activism overshadow her artistry. She dropped her latest single, “Bongos,” in September, and her performance of the Megan Thee Stallion-assisted collaboration at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards garnered attention. Fans can also anticipate another project from Cardi before the year concludes, as she recently hinted at new music on the horizon.
