Can Cardi B just run for President in 2020?

The rapper took to Instagram to vent about tax season and the fact that she has a 40% tax rate. In her rant, she raised a very good question that many Americans are dying to know--where do all her dollars earned from those chart topping hits go? "Uncle Sam, I want to know what you’re doing with my f---ing tax money," she said. "You know what I’m saying? When you donate to a kid from a foreign country, they give you updates on what they doing with your donation." 

She then specified how nothing seems to get done in her hometown of New York City: "The streets are always dirty, New York one of the dirtiest cities in America. What is y’all doin’? There’s rats on the damn trains. I know you ain’t spending it in no damn prison because y’all be givin’ n----s two underwears, one jumpsuit for like five months."

 

I want to fucking know WHAT YA DOING WITH MY FUCKING MONEY !!!!!------

Her video got so much traction that it ended up on a local Los Angeles news station, which she posted a clip of on social media. She ranted more in the caption, writing, "A lot of people responded to this video like they spend our tax money in welfare ,SSI ,military but how do you know tho?where is the prove? My neighborhood still look like s---!"

"Don’t mind me thoo I’m just a ex stripper with bad grammar and heavy accent," she joked, proving once again that you don't need to be a politician or a college grad to try to dissect the country's issues.  Watch below.
