VP Debate 2020: Cardi B calls Susan Page 'b***h' and tells Pence to stop talking, fans want her as next moderator
Cardi B kept a close watch on today's Vice Presidential debate. She posted multiple videos on her official Instagram handle that showed her watching the debate with a group of friends. But the thing that caught the attention of her fans was how enraged Cardi was at debate moderator Susan Page. The debate between incumbent VP Mike Pence and Democratic nominee Kamala Harris was held at University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
In a series of posts made by Cardi, she can be heard yelling and screaming in frustration at her television screen. In the first post, which she captioned, "Working but WATCHING!!!" the 'WAP' rapper is heard yelling "Shut up! Shut the f**k up!" while alluding to Page, saying, "I know you got hired by them people." In the next post, Cardi is clearly angry as she captioned it: "Yoooo he violating I don’t like him. I DONT LIKE THIS MEDIATOR B***H GOT MY BLOOD PRESSURE HIGH!!!"
In this clip, Cardi can be heard playing the moderator herself and furiously saying, "Thank you Vice President, can you stop talking now?" She then goes on to say, "This s**t make me mad!" while someone in the background yells, "White privilege." Then, speaking in favor of Harris, Cardi says, "Now you gotta give Kamala Harris two minutes and thirty seconds cause he (Mike Pence) spoke for two minutes and thirty second." The clip ends with Cardi angrily saying, "The mediator, you b***h."
She then posted a third clip with the caption, "I’m hawt now!!!!!" In this video, Cardi is hitting her television screen while saying, "No, you can't do that! You gotta turn him down!" followed by, "She letting him break the rules, that's not fair." She finally ends the clip right before yelling at Pence saying, "Time to stop talking!" In the final clip posted by Cardi, which is captioned, "I wish I was there," she yells at Pence once again saying, "Why are talking about Osama Bin Laden? You're not answering the question! You is not f***ing answering the questions right!" She then accuses Pence of "eating into Harris' time".
