While people across the country sought their own method of coping with the stress of election night, Cardi B released tension in a fur coat as she smoked three cigarettes and all we have to say is: same.
The Grammy-winning artist, who is known to be vocal on social media, didn't have much to stay during the suspenseful moments, but she posted a brief clip of her cigarettes possibly bringing some relief.
"How these elections got me watching these states turn red," Cardi B wrote in the post.
The artist's low tolerance for President Donald Trump and his supporters has been well-documented throughout the years. Earlier this week, Cardi B went to Instagram to encourage her fans to go vote and make sure the President is gone for good.
“Tomorrow is the day ! I’m not going to front. I’m so nervous of the outcome, but I know we can make a change. LETS GO! #BIGBIDEN,” she wrote in the caption of her video post.
As she has done on multiple occasions, the outspoken musician clearly stated that she "is tired of this bulls**t."
"I'm tired of getting upset every single time I see this man talk. It's like, are you f**king serious?” she said.
Cardi B then emphasized the power of every, single vote.
“Your little one vote, your little one vote could change things," she said. "You could make a change, I could make a change. You don’t gotta be special, you don’t gotta be rich, you don’t gotta be famous, you don’t gotta be beautiful. You just gotta be you with your one vote, so let's all go vote tomorrow, b***h.”
In September, the rapper reiterated why she'll continue to speak out against Trump, Billboard reported.
"It's not a secret that I use my platform for people to vote. I love politics. I endorse the Democratic party. Everybody knows I don't f**k with Trump like that," the 28-year-old said on Instagram Live.
She also discussed the confrontations she has been having with Trump supporters.
"They be degrading me," the "WAP" rapper said. "They be making fun of me. I ignore them. I don't give a f**k. Let me tell you something. S**t gets so intense that a Trump supporter posted my address and encouraged people to dox my home, to put my house on fire. I literally hired a private investigator, and serve them with a warrant and arrest this boy. This boy was a f**king teenager. His parents were f**king shook."
Cardi B's tension alleviating clip on election night embodies the mood around America as voters continue to anxiously await the results of 2020 presidential race. According to a survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of the American Psychological Association, 68% of American adults said the 2020 U.S. presidential election is a significant source of stress in their life — a 12% increase from 2016.
"The current culture and climate, anxiety is so elevated for everybody right now," Dr. Allison Chase, Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center Regional Clinical Director, told KXAN. "We’ve got a pandemic going on, we’ve got some economic unrest unsettling for some, we’ve got parents that are serving not only multiple roles, they’re teachers as well. There are a number of sort of underlying pieces I think increasing everything, and then we have this election."
