Bernie Sanders Is Still Cardi B’s Pick For President After His Heart Attack ‘People Are Trying To Paint Bernie As This Little Scrawny Man, Which Is Crazy!’
Cardi B’s support for Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is unwavering.
The rapper said she’s still backing Sanders for President, despite his health scare earlier this month.
“Before this election, back in 2016, I did some of my research and he’s been fighting for [us] all, you know. He’s very passionate about people. Some people are natural humanitarians and they just want to take care of the world. They want to save the planet. They want to see equal rights. And he’s been doing that for a long time.”
“It’s a little tricky, now that he’s had the heart attack. I feel like people are trying to paint Bernie as this little scrawny little man, which is crazy! He’s pretty strong and very tall, you know? He’s 6’1″! I don’t feel like, just because he has a heart attack, [that it] is a problem, right? I have asthma. Does that mean I’m not going to perform any more?”
She added that her own past paired with Sanders’ main platforms serve as the reasons why she’s so supportive of Sanders.
“Well, [it’s] because of my background, but it’s also, like, common sense. He wants free health insurance. And he wants free education,” she continued. “I have a cousin and she has a degree. And she was telling me she was so miserable because her credit can’t get up, she can’t really get the apartment that she wants. And her credit is down because she owes for her student loans. How does that encourage people to want to go to school?”
Cardi hasn’t been shy about expressing her support for Sanders. The two actually had a sit-down recently where she asked him questions that many voters wanted to know.
It was previously reported that Sanders had to undergo surgery after what was later confirmed to be a heart attack. His campaign first announced the news.
Sanders has since spoken out and said he hoped to get back on the campaign trail soon.
