Rapper Cardi B decided to speak out about politics in an explicit rant about the border wall and government shutdown.
The entertainer went on Instagram live to share her frustrations with the shutdown and insulted people who voted for President Donald Trump and who support the border wall.
“You wanna build a wall because you promised these mother f***ers something that you know you couldn’t do,” said the rapper. “You promised these f***ing racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible. But they voted for you and you promised them this s**t, so now you have to do it.”
While the wall could potentially help border patrol safely monitor who travels across the border, Cardi B instead pointed to the people that would still risk illegally immigrating.
“Even if motherf***ers build the wall, that’s still not going to f***ing prevent people coming into this country,” said the rapper.

She also claimed that Trump only supported the wall to get attention, ignoring the backing he has received.
“Trump is like a clout-chaser,” Cardi B said. “He’s like these new rap artists; they do the most for clout. And Trump wants that. Some people can have money, all the power in the world, but they really want that fame. And some people really wanna be seen as that. His legacy — he wants to go down as that bad person.”
She also posted another video addressing former President Barack Obama’s similar government shutdown strategy.
“I don’t wanna hear you motherf***ers saying Obama shut down the government for 17 days,” she said. “That was for healthcare; so your grandmother could check her blood pressure and you b****es could check your p**** at the gynecologist.”
