'LHHNY' Star Cardi B Wants to Vote Bernie Sanders for President, Calls Hillary Clinton "Fake"
TV Personality Cardi B is just as outspoken off-screen as she is onscreen. The Love & Hip Hop: New York reality star stopped by Power 105.1's morning show, The Breakfast Club, on Tuesday (March 8) to discuss everything from her sexuality to her political views. During the interview, Cardi announced her plans to vote for 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and explains why she thinks Hillary Clinton is "fake."
LHHNY recently wrapped up its drama-filled sixth season and some of the cast members are proving they've been hard at work since filming the popular VH1 series. Cardi B, who's real name is Belcalis Almanzar, was full of surprises when she stopped by the morning show.
The 23-year-old Bronx native revealed she's a real history buff. Cardi is passionate about studying past war facts and events that took place during the Holocaust. She's been following the 2016 presidential hopefuls looking to replace President Barack Obama and despite voicing her concern for each candidate, Cardi proudly endorsed Sanders.

"I do want to vote for Bernie, however but there are certain things that you just can't stop that, its unbelievable," Cardi told The Breakfast Club. "Like for example he wants to stop racism. It's like that's not going to happen! There's certain things you just can't do. What are you going to do? Go burn a bunch of Confederate flags in Virginia Beach and got damn Mississippi? You can't change racism, like it is what it is."
She doesn't view all of his goals as feasible, but Cardi is still "feeling the Bern." Cardi revealed she had no interest in controversial candidate Donald Trump, calling his campaign "ridiculous."
Cardi, who recently dropped her debut mixtape Gangsta B**** Music Vol. 1, admits she would love to help elect the first female president, but doesn't believe everything Clinton says is authentic. Using dance moves popular in the black community to generate votes, did not rub the aspiring rapper the right way.
"I do like Hillary just because she a woman and I feel like she's a strong woman, however I do feel like she's a little fake," Cardi said. "Like you gotta hit the dab to get a few votes? Like girl shut up you don't care about the Blacks, you don't care about the minorities."
