Cardi B's Instagram rant, pinning the bulk of the blame for the government shutdown on President Donald Trump, rubbed conservatives like Tomi Lahren the wrong way.
Over an MLK weekend where a horde of bigoted "Make America Great Again" hat wearing teens harassed protesters, Lahren and the "Bodak Yellow" artist traded barbs on Twitter. Cardi B made waves earlier in the week for calling out Trump's insistence on $5.7 billion for border wall spending.
Her unedited and raw commentary captured the Left's sentiments over the month-long federal government shutdown. Nearly 800,000 people have been furloughed or forced to work without pay.
But the "Be Careful" rapper did not sit idly by and allow the conservative firebrand attempt to shut her up. "Leave me alone I will dog walk you," Cardi warned the blonde spitfire.

Then, Lahren fired back calling Cardi B's statements "moronic." This retort was seen as an elitist slight against Cardi. So, she laid it all out there.
"You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much," she wrote referencing the Trump administration's failings. "You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!"

According to NPR, Trump's approval rating has dropped significantly since the shutdown began on December 22. The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll shows 39 percent approve, 53 percent disapprove. Just a month ago, he stood at 42 percent approve, 49 percent disapprove.
