Cardi B has criticized Joe Biden over inflation, saying grocery prices have INCREASED and a head of lettuce now costs $7 – as she called on the President to ‘put this thing down’

Cardi B has slammed President Biden for soaring inflation that has, she says, seen grocery prices triple and a lettuce rise to $7.

While the wealthy rapper does not specifically name the President, she angrily demands ‘anybody that is responsible’ to bring prices down immediately.

The rapper, 30, revealed on Wednesday that she budgets every week to avoid going broke despite her $62 million net worth.
She urged officials to address the crisis, especially for the middle and lower class who might not be able to afford the soaring prices.

‘When I go to the f***** supermarket… I’m seeing that everything tripled up – that like lettuce was like $2 a couple of months ago and now it’s like f****** $7,’ the rapper said in a video posted to Twitter.

‘And I have a big platform, so I do want anybody that is responsible for these f****** prices to put that s*** the f*** down.’
Cardi acknowledged that she could either keep silent or speak up while arguing the price to buy groceries is more than eating out.

‘Of course I’m going to say something. The f****. Because if I think that s*** is crazy, I can only imagine what middle class people or people in the hood is m***** f***** thinking, so yes I’m going to say something.’

Some people argued that the rapper shouldn’t be complaining about inflation since she is a millionaire.

But the Grammy winner who is no stranger to indulging in the finer things in life, including $10,000 Hermès handbags, quickly addressed the contentious comments and claimed that managing money helps to ensure the longevity of wealth.

‘Let me tell you something, when I be complaining about food and all y’all m***** f***** be like “ain’t you rich why you complaining about lettuce? Why you complaining about this?” That just goes to show me when you become successful – when you have money – you’re going to f***** go broke soon because y’all not budgeting.

Cardi furiously opened up about her own money management techniques and how she needs to know exactly what it is being spent on.

‘I got a summary of the money that is being spent in my home every week, so when I’m starting to see that like groceries is like tripling up, it’s like “ay yo, what the f*** is going on.’ I want to see for myself what the f*** s*** is being spent on.’

The rapper owns a luxurious 22,000-square-foot mansion in Atlanta, Georiga with her husband Offset. The two share two children, Wave Set, one, and Kulture, four.

Offset is also father to sons Jordan, 12, and Kody, seven, and daughter Kalea Marie, seven, from prior relationships.

Their $5.8 million dream home has 5 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms and 4 half bathrooms. The property is completed with an underground shooting range and wine cellar.

Back in September, Cardi shared her outrage over the ‘unbearable’ cost of living and the hot housing market.

She admitted that she has to financially help her family and friends and questioned how others survive.

Voicing her thoughts, she exclaimed: ‘There’s no m************ inventory when it comes to homes. Nobody’s gonna try to sell their f****** homes.

‘I was looking at some areas. The way that the prices soar up… like how are people surviving? I want to know.

‘My family and my friends, they’re so grateful to have me, but it’s just like, what happens to people who don’t have a me?’

The rapper appears to enjoy the finer items in life, especially luxury handbags. But it appears she doesn’t let her wealth get in the way of speaking out for other people.

Cardi has a history of commenting on politics, famously getting into an online war of words with Candace Owens back in 2020, after the conservative commentator called the Grammy-winning rapper ‘illiterate’ and an ‘embarrassment’ to black people.

The feud began when Owens shared a clip of her appearance on The Ben Shapiro Show, in which she slammed then-Democratic nominee Joe Biden for taking part in an interview with Cardi for Elle.

Owens said it was ‘one of the biggest insults’ to black voters that Biden decided to do the interview with an ‘illiterate rapper’, rather than someone who could ask the ‘tough questions’.

The Republican went on to say that Biden thinks ‘black people are stupid’ and likened his interview with Cardi B to Donald Trump being interviewed by Justin Bieber.

Cardi caught wind of Owens’ comments and hit back at her in a video on Instagram, in which she insisted Biden decided to sit down with her because of her wide-ranging influence.

‘It’s not a secret I use my platform to encourage people to vote,’ Cardi, who previously endorsed Bernie Sanders said during the video.

‘I have millions of followers. I pay millions in taxes. I have the Number One song in this country, I have the Number One song in the United Kingdom, I have the Number One song in Australia, I have the Number One song in New Zealand.

‘Just like I can make millions of people pop their p****y,’ she said of her hit-single WAP, ‘I can make millions of people go out and vote.’

The last reported statistics from the Bureau of Labor showed that grocery prices are significantly up since November 2021

Cardi previously said she used to talk more openly about politics but halted when she was continuously ‘attacked’ by conservatives, according to Billboard.

One person on Twitter questioned why she stopped being vocal in 2021.

‘I was tired of getting bullied by the republicans and also getting bashed by the same people I was standing up for,’ she wrote in response.

Cardi continues to voice her opinion and previously spoke out about Russia and Ukraine before they officially went to war in February.

At the time, she was asked on Twitter what she ‘thinks about the whole Russia thing.’

Insisting her phone wasn’t hacked, Cardi told fans ‘I feel like if I don’t say the right things I might get killed’ before urging world leaders to ‘stop tripping on power.’

The rapper shared a tweet in response to the fan question about Russia, writing: ‘Wish these world leaders stop tripping about power and really think about whose really getting affected (citizens) besides the whole world is in a crisis. War, sanctions, invasions should be the last thing these leaders should worry about.’

After another fan wrote ‘okay, pass Cardi her phone back now,’ she jumped on a video to insist her ‘phone is not hacked, it’s really me.’

‘I actually wanna say a lot of things but I’m just gonna mind my business because sometimes I feel like I have such a big platform that if I don’t say the right things I might get killed,’ she explained.

‘But I’m really not on Nato’s side, I’m not on Russia’s side, I’m actually on the citizens side because at the end of the day the world is having a crisis right now,’ Cardi continued.

‘There’s inflation not only in America but everywhere in the world. It’s really hard to get the economy back up. There is so much shipments backed up.’

While inflation came down slightly in the later months of 2022, the U.S. saw record-high rates earlier in the year.

In November, inflation in the US came in at 7.1 percent. The number, still high, marked the fifth-straight month of shrinking annual increases.

The Wall Street Journal survey of 23 primary dealers, the large financial firms that do business directly with the Federal Reserve, found a majority expect a recession in the coming year.

It follows the Fed’s rapid rate hikes designed to battle soaring inflation last year, which saw the benchmark rate rise from near zero in March to a range of 4.25 percent to 4.5 percent by the end of the year.

The central bank forecasts that will reach a range of 5 percent to 5.25 percent by the end of 2023. Its forecast doesn’t call for a rate cut before 2024.

The Fed policy rate is now at its highest level since prior to the 2008 recession, as the central bank attempts to bring inflation down without triggering an economic downturn.

By the Fed’s preferred measure, inflation is still running nearly three times its 2 percent goal, having risen earlier in 2022 at its fastest pace in 40 years.

Biden signed the $430 billion Inflation Reduction Act in August to combat rising prices.

But Republicans argued the legislation would lead to higher energy prices, higher taxes for the middle class, and, potentially, more audits from the Internal Revenue Service.

The act includes incentives for the clean energy industry, permits Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices for the elderly, seeks to ensure corporations and wealthy people pay their taxes through enhanced IRS resources, and aims to combat inflation by reducing the federal deficit.

Biden argued he and the Democrats have helped steer the economy back to more solid ground.

The president originally wanted to pass his trillion-dollar social welfare bill known as ‘Build Back Better.’ But it died a legislative death when moderate Democratic Senator Joe Manchin refused to support it, citing concerns it would raise the deficit.

Manchin signed onto the Inflation Reduction Act after months of negotiations.
