Cardi B has been more politically active than ever lately, and on Tuesday (Aug. 26), the rapper got into a social media spat with a Republican politician over Melania Trump.
The drama started when DeAnna Lorraine — a former Republican congressional candidate who unsuccessfully ran against Nancy Pelosi earlier this year — made an unflattering comparison between Cardi and the First Lady during the latter’s speech at the Republican National Convention.
“America needs far more women like Melania Trump and far less like Cardi B,” the politician tweeted, leading the superstar to fire back, “Didn’t she used to sell that Wap?”
Next, Cardi took things a step further, posting a dated nude photo from the First Lady’s days as a Slovenian model with the caption, “This pic giving me ‘yea you fuckin wit some wet ass pussy’ vibes …just sayin.”
Lorraine then doubled down in the early hours of Wednesday (Aug. 27), slamming Cardi B in a follow-up tweet by claiming the rapper “drugged & robbed men during her time as a ‘stripper’,” “raps songs about her genitalia, corrupting our youth” and “told the youth of America that it’s okay to stay with a cheating man” by staying with husband Offset after his infidelity.
“..And Joe Biden & Kamala Harris campaign with her!” Lorraine concluded.
While Cardi has yet to respond to the last dig, she’s currently riding high on the record-breaking success of her latest No. 1 single “WAP,” a collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, and recently interviewed Biden in a video for Elle.
Lorraine, meanwhile, was knocked out of the election for California’s 12th Congressional district back in March after capturing only 1.8 percent of the primary vote.
