Cardi B And Bernie Sanders Sit Down To Discuss Police Brutality & More

Cardi B made good on her promise and sat down with Vermont senator, Bernie Sanders, to discuss issues such as police brutality and wages. As previously reported, Cardi took to social media to include her fans in her conversation with Sanders by asking them to send her questions that she could ask the senator. 

In a new video, which Sanders’ camp released on Thursday (August 15th), Cardi and Sanders sat down at TEN Nail Bar in Detroit, Cardi question if the senator fears upsetting the big wigs who run drug companies. She said, [“Don't you ever feel scared that these people who run drug companies, and these schools, you know it's all a business, are you scared that you'll get so many powerful people upset? Sanders: Cardi, that's what I've been doing my whole life.”] SOUNDCUE (:21 OC . . . my whole life)

The also spoke on police brutality, with Cardi saying, [“That is discouraging our people, it's discouraging us to fight. It makes us feel like we're worthless. We constantly see our men getting killed every day. And it seems like nobody cares, nobody's sympathizing, nobody's talking about it.”] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC . . . talking about it)

Sanders replied, “If a police officer kills somebody, that killing must be investigated by the United States Department of Justice. We at the federal level must make sure we do everything we can to make sure that police departments look like the communities that they serve, not like an oppressive army.”

A promo video of their 12-minute-long conversation was released earlier this week, where the two spoke on raising minimum wage — which was a question asked by Cardi’s fans. She asked, “What are we going to do about wages in America? Like, for example me, as a New Yorker, not now, but you know, when I was not famous, I just felt like no matter how many jobs I get, I wasn't able to make ends meet. Like, I wasn't able to pay my rent, get transportation, and eat.” 

Sanders said, “Right now we have tens of millions of people who are earning what I consider to be starvation wages. Can you imagine somebody today earning $9 an hour?” 

Sanders drove his point home and closed out the conversation with Cardi, saying, “Cardi, can I just say one thing before we get off? A lot of people moan and groan, right? They don’t like Donald Trump, they don’t like the low wages, they don’t like spending 50 percent of their income on housing, they don’t like student debt, they don’t like the fact they can’t go to college. But all of that moaning and groaning and complaining doesn’t mean anything unless we change the system, okay.” 

He added, “Young people have got to get involved in the political process. Register to vote. It is not hard. It takes you five minutes. Register to vote. Trump does not want people of color to be participating in the political process. Participate in the political process. And then think about who the candidate is that is speaking the issues that are important to you, and then vote. If we have young people voting in large numbers, you know what, I have zero doubt that Donald Trump would be defeated.”

Ed Sheeran Gets Power-Lifted By The Mountain From 'Game Of Thrones'

Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who played Ser Gregor Clegane (a.k.a. The Mountain) on the Emmy-winning HBO series, met up with Ed Sheeran over the weekend and showed off his impressive strength.

Sheeran caught up with his old castmate when he played a pair of shows at Laugardalsvöllur stadium in Iceland.

In a short video posted on Instagram, Sheeran is hanging with Björnsson, who won the 2018 World's Strongest Man competition, champ grabs the singer by the waist and hauls him up over his head and then presses him up to the ceiling.

"He asked for it. Luckily I didn't drop him," Björnsson captioned the clip. "He has to work tonight!!" The lift drew cheers and clapping from the crowd in the room as Sheeran – who had a cameo as a singing Lanister soldier in season seven of the iconic HBO series – laughs and gives the big guy a hug.

Another GoT star, Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) wrote on The Mountain's post: "You did this to me at that wrap party in Spain remember? LOL."
