Cardi B is well known for her rigor in political science, her fandom of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and her keen interest in current events. She is also known for not suffering fools and, over the last couple of days, has had to educate some unfortunate people who have come for her regarding her political cognizance. Poor babies.
It started last week, when Cardi released an Instagram video that made such salient points about the government shutdown several Democratic Senators had public Twitter conversations about whether to share it. (They ultimately declined because of her cursing, but implicitly endorsed it nonetheless.) After insistent rap fan Tomi Lahren tweeted sarcastically that Cardi was the “latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats” despite knowing that she probably gets her life to Cardi’s music, on Sunday Cardi retorted in kind:
WORLDSTAR!!!! Lahren came back for more, calling Cardi “moronic,” which led, sadly, to Lahren getting burnt yet again:
Still, Cardi felt it necessary to explain on an Instagram Live Sunday night that she is genuinely interested in history and politics, subjects in which she was Advanced Placement in high school. “It wasn’t studying to me, it was like a passion because I love to read about American history,” she said. “I like to know about politicians, I like to know how everything is getting ran... I went to college for this shit. It really gets me upset when people be like, oh, you’re dumb. I’m not dumb at this shit!” She then explained that in her free time, she researches and reads about world political history; most recently she learned about North Korea, and already seems to know exponentially more than the pork roll currently running the country.
So just know that if you come for her regarding her political knowhow, she knows what she’s talking about, and will probably dunk on your ass.
Scheana from Vanderpump froze her eggs, Instagramming her hospital bed at the Southern California Reproductive Center. “Bye bye eggs!,” she wrote cheerily, before detailing that it is HER journey, preemptively anticipating “negative comments on this post” which, can relate! Shout out to Scheana’s eggs!

- Someone called the cops on Blac Chyna, alleging that she was drunk and couldn’t take care of her daughter, but she was not and maybe the call was related to a fight she had with her glam team. The fuck! [TMZ]
