How does Cardi B For President sound? Apparently people like late night talk show host Stephen Colbert think the Grammy-nominated raptress could actually pull it off. Cardi has been flexing her political muscle since the controversy of the federal shut down has taken effect. She warned her followers to get informed about how the government shutdown affects them.

And she politely informed conservatives that she is more than capable of being politically savvy while twerking.

Well, Stephen Colbert acknowledged Cardi’s influence. He started a petition to have Cardi B address Donald Trump‘s State of the Union speech. Stephen tweeted:

“I am starting a petition for the Democrats to let @iamcardib give the rebuttal to the SOTU. Sign it by retweeting this!”

It’s since been retweeted over 42,000 times, and counting! Cardi feels confident in her ability to address the country. She replied to Stephen with this tweet:

“why not…I get straight to the point .Government shutdown over”

Would you put our country’s future in Cardi B’s hands? Let us know in the comments.
