The Bronx-bred rapper has U.S. politicians reacting to her social media posts.

(AllHipHop News) Love her or hate her, it cannot be denied that Cardi B has established herself as a global superstar. The "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker can make news with one tweet or one Instagram post.

Time recognized Cardi's ability to generate attention and action on the world wide web. The magazine included the entertainer born Belcalis Almánzar in its article about the "25 Most Influential People on the Internet."

"In January, Cardi made headlines for posting a video criticizing President Trump for not funding the government, 'all for a f-cking wall.' The video went viral, and even came to the attention of Sen. Chris Murphy and Sen. Brian Schatz, who publicly debated whether they should retweet the video," wrote Mahita Gajanan for Time. "In the end, the lawmakers chose not to, but the video still racked up 20 million views on Instagram."

The 26-year-old Grammy-winning recording artist further delved into American politics this week. First, Cardi showed support for Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Representative Jahana Hayes, Representative Ilhan Omar, and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard on her Instagram Story. Then she tweeted about presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders on Tuesday.

"I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I’m really sad how we let him down in 2016," posted Cardi. "This man been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such [a long] time. Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign."

Cardi B was joined on Time's "Most Influential People on the Internet" list by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, "Old Town Road" performer Lil Nas X, President Donald Trump, Pop singer Ariana Grande, YouTuber/media personality Liza Koshy, Red Table Talk host Jada Pinkett Smith, and others.
