Lahren, who was hired by Fox News in 2017 and more recently deployed as a host on fledgling streaming service Fox Nation, is a vocal proponent of the border wall insisted on by President Donald Trump. Accordingly, she ridiculed Cardi B’s support for the Democratic lawmakers refusing to fund Trump’s wall plan. The rapper is “the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats,” Lahren tweeted. “HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA 2020.”
Early this morning, Cardi B responded cooly and sans punctuation, “Leave me alone I will dog walk you.”
In a less-than-inspired, I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I rejoinder, Lahren replied, “I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic.”
Cardi B then railed, “You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much. You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!”
The spat detoured into tax reform and universal health care when Cardi decided to put on blast a Twitter user who goes by the name “White Bread.” After he asked her, “You gonna pay for my insurance? And do I get to pick my doctor and my own plan?” she retorted, “I’m paying about 4 million in taxes this year so most likely I am Paying for your insurance … That’s if your favorite president don’t take my tax money for his wall Mr white bread …”
He then thanked Cardi for getting him past 100 followers (108 and counting).
Lahren also piled on (see her reply below). We will update the tit-for-tat as events warrant.
