Cardi B is always up for a party... unless the people getting down are not properly following COVID-19 protocols and especially if they support Pres. Trump. She proved her point on Tuesday morning (Aug. 18) when she tweeted out a video from a Trump-supporting Instagram feed featuring MAGA hatters flying their flags on a TrumpTilla and rocking out on their boats to Cardi's No. 1 hit "WAP."

"Wasn't republican conservative throwing a little fit about this song?" she wrote with a side-eye emoji in reference to conservative political commentator Ben Shaprio's stiff-backed, line-by-line recitation of the salty lyrics from her collab with Megan Thee Stallion, which became a facepalm moment last week.

"Anyways this makes my ass itchy," Cardi continued. "I'm callin the fbi on this festivity. They are not quarantining." Videos of Trump supporters taking to the waters in boat flotillas from New York to Florida have become a common sight recently. And while it's unlikely that the feds will take Cardi's call seriously, the rapper has something to crow about this week when "WAP" officially debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 on Monday as it broke the record for the most streams in the U.S. the week after its release, smashing the previous record with a huge 93 million.

And, in case you forgot, after supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primaries earlier this year, Cardi has gone all-in on presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, interviewing him for the new issue of ELLE magazine, to break down her thoughts on COVID-19, police brutality and Trump's "dangerous" prejudice.
