Bernie Sanders joined a chat with Cardi B on Instagram Live last night, comparing manicures and telling the rapper he wants to see Joe Biden become “a more progressive candidate.”
Cardi B ranted about Sanders dropping out of the presidential race.
She said, “I had a fit because I was so hurt and upset that you dropped out of the race and everything. I keep telling my people and my supporters that you guys really need to go and vote.Now we’re between 45 [President Trump], we ain’t going to name him over here, and Joe Biden.
“And you know me, since I’ve been so on you and so focused on you I haven’t done my research on Joe Biden.”
The rapper, who then said she WILL vote for Biden, asks Sanders why he endorsed the presumptive Democratic nominee.
Cardi said, “One thing is, like the youth, they don’t really rock with Joe Biden because he’s conservative."She continued, saying that she was “excited” that both President Obama and Sanders endorsed the former veep.
Sanders answered that he always intended to endorse whatever Democrat won the nomination, adding: “Donald Trump, in my mind, is the most dangerous president in the modern history of America."
Sanders then slams “bad news guy” Trump for thinking “he is above the law.” He then said,“What I’m also trying to do right now cards is to work with Joe to see that he becomes a more progressive candidate."
Sanders wants Biden to stand for, “which he will,” a minimum wage of at least $15 an hour and canceling student debt.
“I would go further in all of these areas than he goes, but he is moving in the right direction. He’s moving the right direction on immigration reform, and I think you’ll be pleased with what he has to stay. I think you’ll be hearing him make some pretty strong statements on criminal justice reform.”
