Cardi B took a new shot at Tomi Lahren in their on-going feud on Monday after the Fox Nation host shared an article that appeared to celebrate the arrest and possible deportation of rapper 21 Savage.
“Don’t make me get my leash,” the rapper said in a tweet which — although sent late Sunday night — still managed to rack up tens of thousands of retweets by Monday morning.
The tweet from Cardi B is a call back to an earlier shot she took at to Lahren last month when the rapper warned that she would “dog walk” the Fox News personality. That post had nearly 200,000 retweets and the rapper was even offered a job with National Spokesperson for Media Matters for America — a left-wing media watchdog group which mostly targets Fox News.
The two have traded jabs on Twitter in the past — with Lahren dismissing Cardi as a lightweight whose political views did not merit being taken seriously.
“Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020,” Lahren said in the tweet which immediately precipitated the dog walking incident.
A rep for Lahren’s at Fox News did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap on the latest escalation, but Lahren did address her feud with Cardi B on “Fox & Friends” in January.
“Viewers can look up on Urban Dictionary what dog walking someone means but to put it simply, it’s to severely beat somebody up. So we go from a political disagreement to I want to hurt you,” she said.
And while Lahren may not be a fan of what Cardi thinks — one person who is, is the rapper’s old history teacher, Joan Hill, who said in a recent Facebook post that her former student could pack a punch.
“For those of you on my feed who are trashing Cardi B for representing a political voice a) she probably scored higher than you on the US History regents exam and was in my AP govt class b) you’re not nearly as busy as her, and what have you done to advance political discourse in this country? c) She has a national platform and is using it to speak about things that are important… why can’t we respect that? d) STFU and take a seat,” Hill said in the post.
Cardi B has a long history of making her political opinions known and in past interviews has said her favorite president was Franklin D. Roosevelt.
“He helped us get over the Depression, all while he was in a wheelchair. Like, this man was suffering from polio at the time of his presidency, and yet all he was worried about was trying to make America great-make America great again for real,” she told GQ last April. “He’s the real ‘Make America Great Again,’ because if it wasn’t for him, old people wouldn’t even get Social Security.”
