Tomi Lahren and Cardi B is the 2019 feud we didn’t even know we needed.
The pair got into it over Twitter again after political commentator and Ann Coulter 2.0, Lahren, tweeted a snarky comment about rapper 21 Savage’s arrest.
I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to deport ya. https://t.co/tivP1Ljj8V— Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren) February 3, 2019
In response, rapper Cardi B tweeted, “Don’t make me get my leash.”

The leash comment is, in case you missed it, a reference to their earlier Twitter exchange. In January, Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, posted a video of herself weighing in on the government shutdown and criticizing Trump for letting workers go unpaid.
Lahren responded to Cardi’s video by throwing shade on Twitter, writing “Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020.”
But Lahren clearly didn’t know who she was messing with. Cardi wrote back, “Leave me alone I will dog walk you,” which quickly became everyone’s new favorite threat.

Because Lahren is stupid she didn’t just let it go, tweeting at Cardi B again. She wrote, “I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic.”
Then Cardi took Lahren down with some serious truth.
You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much .You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP! https://t.co/khRpoOt16B— iamcardib (@iamcardib) January 20, 2019
“You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much. You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!,” Cardi wrote.
At that point, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) chimed in, tweeting, “Why do people think they can mess with Bronx women without getting roasted? They act as though our borough hasn’t been perfecting the clapback game since the Sugarhill Gang y’all just found it on Twitter.”

Just like her other tweets, Cardi’s “Don’t make me get my leash” tweet got a lot of attention on Twitter.
Waiting for Tammy Lasorda to read this and clutch her pearls and go “IVE BEEN ATTACKED!”.

One person wrote that he wondered what would happen if Lahren and Cardi B ever actually ran into each other.
