Cardi posted the message, "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,” and in doing so, ignited a political debate with her own fans.
The musician has since sat down with the veteran politician for a big picture chat, proof of which Cardi shared on social media. She definitely feels the Bern.
“Not me, US. Thank you Senator Bernie Sanders for sitting with me and sharing your plans on how you will change this country,” she wrote.
“A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you had the opportunity to have a question answered by a democratic candidate what would it be? I got a lot of submission and selected the most popular questions to get answered," Cardi continued. "Stay tuned to see how he will fight for economic, racial, and social justice for all. Together, let’s build a movement of young people to transform this country. LETS LEARN OUR CANDIDATES!”
According to CNN, the pair chatted about student debt, climate change and the minimum wage for a campaign video that has yet to air.
Just last week, Sanders spoke enthusiastically about Cardi during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and admitted they'd spoken on the phone. "She is really smart and she is deeply concerned about what is happening in this country. That's the truth, she comes from a humble background... she wants to make sure that we can improve life for working people in this country," he said.
