The Republican National Convention has been underway all week as the 2020 presidential election inches closer.
Shortly after Melania Trump delivered her RNC speech on Tuesday night (August 25), conservative political commentator and author DeAnna Lorraine — who unsuccessfully ran against Nancy Pelosi for Congress earlier this year — tweeted, “America needs far more women like Melania Trump and far less like Cardi B.”
Cardi immediately threw a rebuttal back in Lorriane’s face with, “Didn’t she used to sell that Wap?”

Cardi then doubled down and shared a nude photo from Mrs. Trump’s days as a Slovenian model, writing, “This pic giving me ‘yea you fuckin wit some wet ass pussy’ vibes …just sayin.”
Undeterred, Lorraine fired back, “Cardi B: -drugged & robbed men during her time as a ‘stripper.’ raps songs about her genitalia, corrupting our youth. her husband cheated on her and she told the youth of America that it’s okay to stay with a cheating man…and Joe Biden & Kamala Harris campaign with her!”

Online chatter about Mrs. Trump’s past has been circulating for years. During her time as a model, she used to strip down to pose for magazines such as GQ and now-defunct French magazine Max and allegedly worked as an escort, something she’s denied.
In 2017, she sued The Daily Mail and Mail Online for libel and won after they ran an article suggesting she offered services beyond modeling, according to The Guardian.
The lawsuit argued the publication made “false and defamatory claims about [Mrs Trump] which questioned the nature of her work as a professional model and republished allegations that she provided services beyond simply modeling.”
While Cardi may be a chart-topping rapper these days, Cardi’s salacious past is also riddled with controversy. Before she found notoriety on Love & Hip Hop: New York, she was a stripper and has admitted to drugging and robbing men for money.
