Why is Tomi Lahren Feuding With Cardi B?
Since the 2016 election, Americans have been divided over politics in a way that hasn’t been seen in the past several decades. The election of Donald Trump to the White House has only elevated animosity, suspicion, and flat-out hatred. Issues like immigration, women’s rights, and everything in between has spurred arguments in families, at work, and even between celebrities in Hollywood. The latest celebrity feud between Cardi B and Tomi Lahren comes as a result of the longest-ever government shutdown over Trump’s $5.7 billion demand for a border wall. This is why the hip-hop mogul and the political commentator are at each other’s throats.
What did Cardi B say about Donald Trump and the government shutdown?
As the government shut down has dragged on, it has left desperate people and hungry children across all political spectrums and races around the country. Cardi B took to her Instagram page to speak out against it. She slammed President Donald Trump for forcing government workers like those who work for TSA to continue working without pay. In her video she said, “Now, I know a lot of y’all don’t care because y’all don’t work for the government or y’all probably don’t even have a job, but this sh*t is really fu*king serious bro, this sh*t is crazy. Our country is in a hellhole right now.”
Cardi B tells Trump supporters to work for free
Later she went on to suggest that Trump supports who are so desperate for their wall should work for free. She wrote, “All you Trump supporters should work for free while the government is shut down to show your support…”
Why is Tomi Lahren feuding with Cardi B?
Controversial Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren was not pleased with the Bronx-born rapper’s rant, so she tweeted, “Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020”
All Americans –especially those paying the amount of taxes that Cardi B does at her income level have a right to weigh in on the government shutdown, so we’re not sure why Lahren thought it was wise to clap back at the “Money” rapper–especially since we all know Cardi doesn’t back down from a fight.
Cardi B was quick to clap back at Lahren for attempting to mock her. She said, “Leave me alone I will dog walk you.”

What does “dog walk” mean?
For those of you who aren’t quite sure, “dog walking” is a slang term for beating someone one up –and judging from the lyrics on Cardi B’s debut album Invasion of Privacy, we doubt the “Bodack Yellow” rapper will even have to touch Lahren to really hurt her feelings.
Tomi Lahren’s response to Cardi B
Unfortunately, Lahren hasn’t learned when she’s lost an argument, because she tried to come back at Cardi by tweeting, “I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic. #BuildthatWall”

However, as many people pointed out, Cardi wasn’t going on a “political ramble” at all. She was talking about the 800,000 federal workers whose lives and livelihoods have been significantly affected by the shutdown and the millions of underprivileged people who will not have government assistance as this shut down persists.
