“Cardi B for Congress” Has Conservative Twitter PRESSED!

mm

Published

Cardi B is contemplating a run for office according to a series of tweets published this past Sunday, January 12. Unsurprisingly enough, she is already battling hate from all across the aisle. 

“I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Government (sic),” the New York rapper said in a series of tweets. “Like I was watching war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country have 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 the LOVE being American.”

 

The rapper then went on to say she will have to explain more at a later date, possibly in a video. After publicly endorsing Vermont Senator and progressive Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2019, Cardi was lauded for showing us the “woke” side of her image. 

On Tuesday, the rapper found herself in numerous Twitter spats, especially with right-wing accounts. Mindy Robinson, a conservative political pundit, commented on Cardi’s post with several drawn-in grammatical corrections. Despite Cardi admitting on Sunday that she would need more schooling before she could seriously enter politics, Robinson ended her tweet with “you need more than that.” In a later comment, she declared that her “cat is more qualified to run for Congress than Cardi B.”

 

Cardi, whose given name is Belacalis Almánzar, is no stranger to Twitter beef and quickly had an answer for Robinson. “Leave me alone. I didn’t insulted your party or your believes so please don’t try me and let’s keep sweet OK….don’t want to dog walk you,” she replied before unleashing a savage string of jabs toward the internet personality. 

 

While a dog walk sounds like a peaceful way to spend quality time with your beloved pooch, for Cardi, it is a serious threat – one we’ve heard before. You will recall in January of 2019 she warned Tomi Lahren, another conservative pundit, to leave her alone, lest she gets dog walked. Just as in the feud with Robinson, Cardi was minding her own business on social media Tomi Lahren attacked her for her views. Her comments lit a fire in the rapper and the two engaged in a back and forth lasting several hours. 

 

Obviously Robinson did not get the message a year ago that Cardi B has the time to argue with internet trolls because she found herself in the same predicament as Lahren did – potentially discovering what it’s like to “dog walk” with Cardi. 

 

Check out the best of both feuds below and let us know what you think.

Kanye West Isn’t Your Father

Disclaimer: This is the opinion of one young writer, and does not reflect the views and opinions of KingOfReads.com or its proprietor.

I’ve spent a lot of time with Kanye West’s music. I was born in 1994, so Kanye arrived on the scene at a time when I was a developing Queer boy. I had so many feelings, these uncontrollable hormonal emotions, that Kanye’s music really spoke to in some ways. That said, he was trash. Like most of our heroes, he was trash. But we ate it up, didn’t we? Now, some of us have outgrown him. Some of us need to grow up.

Kanye has, yet again, let his ego do the talking. Whether you believe he is serious or not, he wants us to believe that he is running for president. He also wants you to believe he loves Black people. It’s dangerous for you to believe either. Kanye has a non-Black wife, whom he has allowed to scold and threaten the Black people running the foundation named after his Black mother. Kanye was (is?) an ardent supporter of Donald Trump. Kanye implied that slavery was a choice. Kanye’s given you every indication that his interests lie with his current state of mind and y’all (spelled: Black cishet men) ignore the fact that said interests consistently cause harm. That makes you complicit. So let’s talk about it.

Kanye Sunday Service

As JustLatasha once said, “I’m sorry your fathers never came home.” Kanye is not your long-lost Daddy. Neither is Nas, Jay-Z, J. Cole, or Robert Kelly. These men are businessmen. Their allegiance is to the money they make. Don’t get me wrong. I’m anti-capitalist, but I understand that Black people need money to survive, and in order to leverage capital for progress against oppressive systems. All these men have enough money to survive for several hundred years. Yet, instead of redistributing it or supporting the work of people who have been fighting toward Black liberation for decades, they sprinkle a few tax-deductible dollars into organizations that may or may not actually appropriate these funds correctly, or give you a soundbite that makes you think they’re on your side. Then, they turn around and say things like “we’ve moved past kneeling” and “400 years?! That sounds like a choice.” They spew rhetoric, not backed by facts or even well-thought-out opinion, that undermines people who have done the reading, who have done the research required to participate in the discussion. The problem is, at every turn, Black cishet men want to believe that they’re “playing chess not checkers” when it’s clear they aren’t even on the board.

Y’all have this faith in these men, as if they somehow are providing something substantive in your life. Let’s take a look at a few of the “chess” moves Kanye performed today. He told you vaccines were “the mark of the beast”. He said one of the police officers who aided in the murder of George Floyd didn’t deserve to be in jail. He implied that God was punishing us with COVID-19 and that prayer was all that was needed to stop it. But when he was asked about taxes, this man who’s worth more than some small countries said “I haven’t done enough research on that yet. I will research that with the strongest experts that serve God and come back with the best solution.” And the worst part is that he doesn’t have to answer for any of this. You’ll all do it for him. You’ll defend him until the day he dies because you see him as a patriarch, a father-figure, here to guide you through life in the way your father never could. Guess what, Tiger, daddy isn’t really out for a pack of smokes. He’s in Wyoming with his White wife and a whole lot of money he doesn’t want your dirty little fingers to touch.

Do you feel attacked? You should. Toyin is dead. Tony McDade is dead. Trans women are dying at such a rapid pace, I have lost track. George Floyd’s gasping death is still playing in my mind, and Breonna Taylor’s killers are still not answering for their crimes. These are our chess pieces. You, not Kanye, should be moving them, but your fingers are too preoccupied defending a man who doesn’t know you exist and never wanted to.

Floyd Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions May Not Be Doing So Well

Published

on

Serial woman-beater, boxer, and founder of Mayweather Promotions, Floyd Mayweather, may be in financial troubles right now according to many sources close to the athlete.

It was revealed Tuesday that Mayweather Promotions, the boxing promotional company named after and started by “Money Mayweather,” was among the many thousands of small businesses nationwide that applied for financial assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program. 

Let’s quickly recap: the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a federal loan program spawned from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the country. Essentially, businesses of a certain size are eligible for a 100% forgivable loan if they continue to pay all their employees. Protecting the paycheck, right?

Whose paycheck?

It is estimated that Floyd Mayweather made over $300 million in 2019 alone and over $915 million from 2010 – 2017. For the 2010’s, he was the highest paid athlete in the world, so why did his company ask for between $350k and $1 million in economic aid? Why is he charging $999 for personalized shoutouts? 

Via Instagram, Floyd joined the website, Cameo (think: “OnlyFans” for celebrities), and is charging folks the almost-$1k fee for custom messages. Pretty surprising for a guy who nicknamed himself “Money,” has been unabashedly vocal about his money, and frequently posts obscene pictures of himself posing with unbelievable amounts of cash.

During the coronavirus pandemic, more than 40 million Americans have applied for unemployment benefits with most receiving $600 or less per week. While many have worried where their next meal will come from, where their rent money will come from, Floyd has made business moves. Check out his recent posts to see what we mean.

While many Americans have been irrevocably f*cked by our good sis ‘Rona, Mayweather posted his closet.

But his company, Mayweather Promotions, can ask for federal assistance? FAFSA, but for businesses?

Eat the rich.

Kanye West Rambles Through an Interview About His Presidential Run

mm

Published

on

Kanye West’s Twitter announcement on Independence day confused a lot of people. There was no record of him registering to run, his only two endorsements seemed to be Kim Kardashian and Elon Musk, and… well… it’s July. It all just seemed like him trolling the masses again. Well, I guess Forbes’ Randall Lane wasn’t content to wait on further information, because they went ahead and called him up to ask him what’s tea. The results were a mixed, babbling bag.

The actual interview was 4-hours long and Forbes picked as much out as I’m sure their poor servers could handle, but the picture is still one of a man who is only clear that he is a Christian man. He claims that God is the one who chooses the president, that God needs to be let back into schools, and implies that COVID-19 is the result of us making God mad. “We pray. We pray for the freedom,” he said, “It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”

He also seems rather paranoid, and even that is threaded through his religious views. On vaccines, seemingly as preventative care against coronavirus, he said “[t]hat’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”

There’s a lot to process here, but the gist is that Kanye is portraying himself as serious, but seems unable to give much in the way of answers that don’t relate back to God. We’ll let y’all know when he starts making sense.
