(AllHipHop News) Last month, a video of Cardi B ranting about taxes went viral, and conservative pundits praised her for questioning how the government is using the public's money. Now the "I Like It" star has earned applause from progressives for her stance on social security and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
"[FDR] helped us get over the Depression, all while he was in a wheelchair," Cardi told GQ. "Like, this man was suffering from polio at the time of his presidency, and yet all he was worried about was trying to make America great—make America great again for real. He's the real 'Make America Great Again,' because if it wasn't for him, old people wouldn't even get Social Security."
In response to those comments, former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders gave the 25-year-old entertainer a shout out on Twitter. The Vermont senator tweeted, "Cardi B is right. If we are really going to make America great we need to strengthen Social Security so that seniors are able to retire with the dignity they deserve."
