Cardi B Fears Being 'Blackballed' for Her Political Stance, Blasts Biden and Trump

The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker has had enough of the U.S. political leadership, putting the current Commander-in-chief Joe Biden and the former one Donald Trump on blast ahead of the Presidential election.

AceShowbiz - Cardi B is no stranger to controversy, but her recent political critiques spotlight a growing sense of disillusionment among Americans, including notable celebrities, regarding the current political leadership. Speaking candidly, the rapper has expressed severe disappointment in both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

Cardi B, a vocal supporter of progressive policies, initially supported Biden in the 2020 election after Bernie Sanders exited the race. She was clear about her motivations back then, saying she couldn't "see the next step of America being ran by number 45." Fast forward to today, and the Grammy-winning artist feels betrayed by the very leaders she hoped would bring change.

"I feel like people got betrayed," she candidly remarked, pointing to high living costs and flawed domestic and foreign policies as sources of "layers and layers of disappointment." She blasted both Democrat and Republican parties for neglecting domestic issues by opting to send taxpayers' millions of dollars to other countries instead of spending them on their own people.

One of Cardi B's major contentions is America's handling of international conflicts. She's particularly critical of the U.S.'s selective engagement, emphasizing how certain countries with ongoing crises remain ignored by American foreign policy because they don't offer strategic benefits.

"There's countries [where] kids are getting killed every single day," she lamented in an interview with Rolling Stone, "but because the [U.S.] won't benefit from that country, they won't help."

The artist also voiced concerns about potentially being "blackballed" for speaking out about the Israel-Palestine conflict. This aligns with a broader sentiment among some celebrities who disapprove of Biden's foreign policy. For instance, actress Cynthia Nixon is taking part in a hunger strike demanding that the president cease funding actions that lead to civilian casualties in Palestine.

Economic issues also weigh heavily on Cardi B's disillusionment. Recently, she criticized Biden for supporting overseas conflicts while simultaneously allowing budget cuts that affect essential services in New York City. She highlighted the $120 million budget cut impacting schools, libraries, and the police force.

"I'm not endorsing no f****** president no more," she declared, reflecting a sentiment increasingly shared by former Biden supporters.

Cardi B's discontent is mirrored by other notable figures such as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who have also expressed frustration with Biden's presidency. Musician Michael Rapaport even hinted he might consider voting for Trump, a statement underscoring the deep divisions and dissatisfaction prevalent today.

Cardi B's outspoken critiques may invite varied reactions, but they resonate with a significant portion of the American populace. According to Pew Research data, one in four Americans currently disapprove of both Biden and Trump. As 2024 approaches, this widespread discontent signals a potentially turbulent election, with independent candidates possibly gaining unprecedented traction.
