Sen. Bernie Sanders Backs Cardi B Call To Strengthen Social Security

"Cardi B is right", Sanders tweeted Wednesday.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) found himself agreeing with a rather unexpected ally on Wednesday when he tweeted that he agrees with Rapper Cardi B's stance on Social Security.

Cardi B just received a co-sign from Bernie Sanders! This was after Cardi noted that Franklin D. Roosevelt played a vital role in starting Social Security during his presidency, calling the late president "the real Make America Great Again President".

In the post, Cardi B says FDR was "the real "Make America Great Again" president because if it wasn't for him, older Americans wouldn't even get Social Security".

The initial Social Security Act was passed in 1935 during Roosevelt's time in office as a way of providing welfare for old-aged and unemployed American citizens.

It was only a matter of time before a politician hopped on the Cardi B bandwagon.

Sanders details his ideas for a new Social Security program on his website, on which he suggests raising the Social Security tax rate for those with a yearly income of more than $250,000.

Cardi B went on to discuss Roosevelt at length in her interview with GQ, stating that the 32nd president changed the country for the better while wheelchair bound.

Sanders has tweeted about popular artists in the past when it came to politics.

Yup, in one of the weirdest hip-hop/politics cross-overs since Kid Rock pretended to run for Senate in MI a year ago, former democratic presidential candidate and notoriously lovable crank Vermont Sen.
