Rapper Cardi B and Democratic Socialist New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez both decided to attack conservative commentator Tomi Lahren over the weekend. Big mistake
. Lahren, who appears on Fox News, got into a Twitter catfight this weekend concerning politics with Cardi B. After Cardi B was less than civil to President Trump on the partial government shutdown and building a wall on our southern border, Lahren decided to take her on.
This was after Cardi B referred to Trump supporters as “racist a** rednecks.”
The rapper was threatening and racist in her attacks on Tomi Lahren. Nothing new there. “Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020,” Lahren wrote. That’s pretty spot on in my estimation.
Cardi B replied: “Im paying about 4 million in taxes this year so most likely I am Paying for your insurance ….That’s if your favorite president don’t take my tax money for his wall Mr white bread.” Cardi added in another tweet:
“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 on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!” Says the leftist sheep herself.
And that was when Ocasio-Cortez jumped into the fray. Cardi B is from the Bronx and Ocasio-Cortez likes to pretend she is too. “Why do people think they can mess with Bronx women without getting roasted? They act as though our borough hasn’t been perfecting the clapback game since the Sugarhill Gang y’all just found it on Twitter,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Ocasio doesn’t know history and has an awful habit of getting virtually every fact wrong. This time was no different. What amazes me is the media supports Ocasio-Cortez’s lies and historical revisionism. And she just won’t stop: “Absolutely, I do,” she said when asked if she believed more people like Cardi B should speak out against Trump. “I mean, Bronx girls are going to reopen the government, OK?” Except she isn’t from the Bronx.
Tomi Lahren can hold her own. She wiped the floor with both of these opportunists and they deserve it. And every time they attack her like this, she will make them regret it. This is the state of politics in America today where lies go viral so some rapper or leftist mouthpiece can get publicity and bask in the limelight. The shame of it all is that some people will believe them.
