It’s tax season, and Cardi B has an important message for the government on behalf of all of us: She didn’t make all of these damn money moves to not know where 40 percent of her income is going.


In an Instagram video posted Thursday night, Cardi went off about the government’s lack of transparency and accountability when it comes to taxes.

“You know the government is taking 40 percent of my taxes,” Cardi began—which, bless her, because if I found out Donald Trump’s government was taking a 40 percent cut of my bread, I’d be setting things on fire indiscriminately. Probably my cash, just so Trump’s tiny, wall-building hands couldn’t get to it, because I’m a Scorpio and I’m extremely spiteful in that way. But I digress.

“Uncle Sam, I want to know what you’re doing with my fucking tax money,” Cardi said (this would be a theme).

Cardi then noted that when you sponsor children in need through charities, you typically get an update on how they’re doing.


“They give you updates on what they’re doing with your donation. I want to know what you’re doing with my fucking tax money, because I’m from New York and the streets are always dirty,” Cardi continued. “There’s still rats on the damn trains. I know you’re not spending it on no damn prisons cuz y’all be giving niggas like two underwears, one jumpsuit for like five months.

“What is y’all doing with my fucking money? I want to know. I want receipts.”


I’m @-ing New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Aubrey O’Day, Whoever Trump Fired This Week, Whoever Trump Hired This Week, the bushes in the Rose Garden, Ben Carson’s wife, Sarah Huckabee’s eyebrows, Paul Ryan’s lips (wait, never mind), the White House staff member who has to run across the West Wing to change the channel on Trump’s TV for him, and Kim Jong Un for good measure, and sending them all this video.


The people need to know.
