The second night of the Republican National Convention went down last night (Aug. 25) as we inch closer to the November presidential election.
Among those to take the stage during Tuesday evening’s lineup of speakers was First Lady Melania Trump, who spoke about her husband, President Donald Trump, and why he should be reelected. During her speech, Melanie also expressed sympathy for the communities that have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and called for people to come together during these times of racial unrest.
Naturally, Melania’s speech was heavily talked about across social media by both sides of the aisle. Amid the discourse, DeAnna Lorraine, the former Republican Congressional candidate who lost in a run against Nancy Pelosi, took to Twitter to share her admiration for Melania’s words. She tweeted, “America needs far more women like Melania Trump and far less like Cardi B.”
This did not go unnoticed by Cardi B. While the Bronx rap star didn’t comment on Melania's speech, she did not hold back in her response to Lorraine.
“Didn’t she used to sell that Wap?” the rapper tweeted out, referencing her hit single. She followed that up by sharing an old, nude photo of Melania, writing, This pic is me ‘yea you f**kin’ wit some wet a** p***y vibes...jus sayin.’”
Since its release, there have been complaints that Cardi B’s new single with Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP” is overly explicit. The Grammy-winning rapper recently interviewed with an Australian radio show, The Kyle and Jackie O Show, where she addressed claims that the song was too provocative
“The people that the song bothers are usually conservatives or really religious people, but my thing is I grew up listening to this type of music,” Cardi explained. “Other people might think it's strange and vulgar, but to me, it's almost like really normal, you know what I'm saying?”
No, of course, I don't want my child to listen to this song and everything,” she added. “But, it's for adults.”
“You wanna know something? It’s what people want to hear,” Cardi said. “If people didn't wanna hear it, if they were so afraid to hear it, it wouldn't be doing as good.”
