Cardi B has announced her intention to move into politics. Although, unlike every other celebrity who has this idea (current US president included), she reckons she needs to formally study the field before making the career change.
“I think I want to be a politician”, she tweeted last night. “I really love government even though I don’t agree with government”.
I’m not sure if, by that, she means she doesn’t agree with the policies of the current American government or that she doesn’t agree with the process of being governed at all. I guess it’s harder to love something you don’t think should exist, so let’s go with the former.
What of her own policies though? Well, here’s her first: “Like, I was watching war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country [has] you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American”.
Yeah, OK, it lacks a certain nuance perhaps. But that’s fine. She’s not yet a politician, so she’s free to make claims about a lack of patriotism in a country which, many of those on the outside reckon, tends to border on unfeasibly high levels of patriotism.
Anyway, like I say, she’s just starting out, and she recognises that she might need more training – more even than the grounding in politics that you get by watching war documentaries – before she gets into all this properly.
“I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress”, she tweeted this morning. “I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table”.
Alright, she basically believes she already has all the ideas and that she only needs a minimal education to become completely au fait with the inner workings of government. Still, like I said, better than most celebrities who try to get into politics.
