She's called Cardi B because her family nickname, Bacardi, couldn't get past the trademark defensebots on Instagram!
Sanders and Cardi B talk minimum wage, unionization, jobs, and economics, drawing on questions from Cardi B's social media followers. The video was vertical.
It's the second time the pair have teamed up to discuss the 2020 elections and Sanders's candidacy: the last time around, they covered student debt and climate change as well as raising the minimum wage.
Sanders told Jimmy Kimmel that he often talks with Cardi B and considers her "really smart...deeply concerned about what's happening in this country. She wants to make sure we improve life for working people in this country, and I'm delighted that she is a supporter." Sanders has not ruled out a Cardi B performance at his inauguration.

"Like, for example me, as a New Yorker, not now, but you know, when I was not famous, I just felt like no matter how many jobs I get, I wasn't able to make ends meet," she said. "Like, I wasn't able to pay my rent, get transportation and eat."
Sanders said that's an issue in America, adding tens of millions are living on what he described as starvation wages.
"Can you imagine somebody today earning $9 an hour?" he asked. "How do you pay your rent? How do you pay for food? How do you pay for transportation?"
Sanders said unions are crucial in helping negotiate fair wages. "What we also have to do is make it easier for workers to join unions so they can sit down and engage in collective bargaining and earn a decent living," he added.

In 2011, someone sold their Bode 7702 vocoder on ebay. They made this excellent video to show off its sound and features. I’m sure the buyer was very pleased with their purchase, but I’m here for the remixes.

Unless you’re doing a lot better than most of us these days, having a personal masseuse on call isn’t really financially doable. And of course, how many masseurs are still doing house calls or accepting visitors during all this time of medical uncertainty? With skilled human hands mostly out of play right now, it falls […]
It’s almost shocking to say…but there’s actually an incredible amount of manhood wrapped up in how well you cook a steak. Of course, no one would argue your grilling abilities are THAT important. Or that how well you sear a prime slab of beef should have any bearing on your social standing or feeling of […]
The notion of two people sleeping in the same bed always inspires romantic visions of love and intimacy. However, most quickly realize that the romance of sleeping together is often quickly replaced by the realities of the act. One partner snores. The other talks in their sleep. One grinds their teeth.
