The conversation, filmed at a Detroit nail salon, sees the Bronx rapper quiz the White House hopeful on a number of key issues.
In a tweet, Sanders succinctly explained, “Cardi B’s nails are juuuust a little different than mine. Our views on the issues are pretty similar.”
In the video, the rapper makes clear that she wants her fans to understand the issues:
We have this bully as a president and the only way to take him out is somebody winning. I want to tell my millions of followers: We’re here to educate you guys.
I don’t want people thinking that we’re trying to attack the police. Because let me tell you something, there was this one time that I started to feel like I hate the police, they’re pigs. But there’s a lot of cops that go in their jobs and they want to protect their people. We need police departments that look like the communities that they serve — we get rid of a lot of this militarization of the police department, which is a form of intimidating people.
Topics covered include Medicare for All, tuition-free college and combatting student debt. The video is well worth watching in its entirety.
