The rapper Cardi B of “WAP” fame has officially turned on President Joe Biden after it was announced that there will be a 5 percent budget cut to public services in her hometown of New York City.
New York City Budget Cuts
Newsweek reported that though Cardi B campaigned for Biden before the 2020 presidential election, she has since turned her back on him in a blistering live session on Instagram in response to the New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) announcing the 5 percent budget cuts last Thursday.
“For months, we have warned New Yorkers about the challenging fiscal situation our city faces,” Adams said. “To balance the budget as the law requires, every city agency dug into their own budget to find savings, with minimal disruption to services.
“And while we pulled it off this time, make no mistake: Migrant costs are going up, tax revenue growth is slowing, and COVID stimulus funding is drying up,” he continued. “No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will be only the beginning.”

Cardi B Fires Back – Turns On Biden
This didn’t sit well with Cardi B, who took to Instagram over the weekend to let her feelings on the budget cut be known.
“I’m an angry b**** right now… I need y’all to spread this video, and if something happens to me, it’s because I’m speaking the truth,” she began. “In New York, there is a $120 million budget cut in New York that’s going to affect schools, public libraries, and the police department… And a $5 million budget cut in sanitation. B****, we are going to be drowning in f****** rats.”
This was a clear reference to the money the U.S. government has been sending to Ukraine and Israel to help with their respective wars against Israel and Hamas.

Though Cardi B admits that she’s “lucky” and “blessed” to be wealthy, she couldn’t help but wonder, “What’s going to happen to my nieces? What’s going to happen to nephews? What’s going to happen to my cousins, aunts, and my friends that’s living in the hood.”
