“B****, I’m scared”: Cardi B weighs in on the government shutdown
Rich Fury/Getty Images for Fashion NovaCount Cardi B as one of the millions of Americans who thinks something needs to be done about the ongoing government shutdown. She’s just not quite sure what that is.
“This s*** is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now, all for a f****** wall,” Cardi declares in a video posted to her Instagram Wednesday night.
“We really need to take this serious,” Cardi goes on. “I feel like we need to take some action. I don’t know what type of action, b****, because this not what I do, but b****, I’m scared.”
Cardi begins the video by noting how Trump has ordered certain government workers to return to work “without getting paid.”
“I know a lot of y’all don’t care because y’all don’t work for the government or y’all probably don’t have a job, but this s*** is really f****** serious, bro,” Cardi says, adding later, “And I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to f****** work to not get mother****** paid.”
Thousands of workers for the IRS, FAA and FDA were among those ordered back to work Tuesday.
The government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history, entered its 26th day Thursday.
