Only days after Cardi B threw shots at President Trump for his role in the government shutdown, her estranged husband, Offset, came to his baby mama’s defense like every man should. Speaking to Esquire for an interview that was published yesterday (Jan. 22), Offset made it clear that he also doesn’t agree with the President’s methods of leadership, likening the current circumstances to a historic lack of justice and humanity.
In reference to the shutdown, Offset said: “Seeing people talk about how they can’t pay their bills but they have to work. That’s some slave s***. I don’t really get into politics because I’m usually on the other side of it. There’s Black mothers with jobs, and now you take their jobs away. And then the president, I don’t really want to speak on him, but he’s rich. Make a n**** respect you, because a n**** don’t respect you. He’s rich and has these folks struggling.”
Elsewhere in the interview, he says “We’re going through a f***** up time, both sides, Black and the White. You know why? The government shutdown. Black people aren’t working, White folks aren’t working. It’s everybody.”
In other Offset news, it’s still expected that his debut solo album is supposed to be released sometime in the near future, after it was delayed back in December due to what many suspect was related to his public breakup from Cardi B.
