Democratic lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez then jumped in and sided with the increasingly political and controversial singer
Rapper Cardi B (shown above left) has grown increasingly political in recent weeks — but it appears she doesn’t much like others criticizing her opinions.
The 26-year-old entertainer recently attacked President Donald Trump for the partial government shutdown and for serving fast food during the Clemson Tigers’ White House visit. Her language did not lack in vulgarity, either.
“You promised these f***ing racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible,” she said in a video directed at Trump that she posted to social media.
She also praised former President Barack Obama — and defended the partial shutdown that occurred under his presidency.
Conservative commentator and Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren (above right) took to Twitter to react to Cardi B’s video in humorous fashion.
“Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys!” she wrote.
Cardi B was not too happy with that response — and seemed to say she did not want to be involved in a political debate.
Her way of saying this happened to be threatening to “dog walk” Lahren.
“Leave me alone or I will dog walk you,” the rapper wrote on Twitter.

“Dog walk” is a way of saying you are going to assault someone, according to Urban Dictionary.
The two then engaged in a fiery verbal debate in which Cardi B said Lahren is racist.
“I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic,” Lahren responded to the rapper’s “dog walk” comment.
Cardi B responded, “You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much … You are a perfect example [of] no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) then weighed in and let people know she sided with Cardi B.
“Why do people think they can mess with Bronx women without getting roasted?” the lawmaker wrote.
“They act as though our borough hasn’t been perfecting the clapback game since the Sugarhill Gang y’all just found it on Twitter,” added the Democratic socialist.

Lahren hit back at Cortez for celebrating Cardi B threatening violence on a woman.
“Aren’t you the same girl who whines about Trump inciting violence? Now you applaud it because it’s against a female conservative you disagree with politically? Convenient. P.S. I do fully acknowledge @iamcardib is smarter than YOU,” Lahren wrote.

To recap, Cardi B, an anti-Trump liberal, went on a vulgar rant and labeled millions of people “redneck racists” and Lahren responded, which is part of her job as a commentator.
The rapper then hit back by threatening to assault Lahren for daring to disagree with her broad, vulgar opinions.
Then a newly elected congresswoman applauded the threat of violence and helped gang up on Lahren.
Welcome to political discourse in 2019. It’s exactly like 2018, but even nastier.
