Out rapper Cardi B had some words for a Republican member of Congress that claimed she is contributing to “the moral decline of America.”

“This is why people gotta vote, elect better people cause you got these dum asses representing states,” she tweeted.

Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), who just received downward marks in ratings from the American Conservative Union, might have sought a comeback with a prepared speech condemning the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the “moral decline” they’re allowing.

He specifically focused on Cardi B and her performance at the 2021 Grammy Awards ceremony in March, where she performed her controversial hit “W.A.P.” with Megan Thee Stallion.

“I’ve received some complaints in my office, and rightfully so, about Cardi B and the Grammys,” Grothman commented on the floor of the House. “They wonder why we are paying the FCC if they feel this should be in living rooms across the nation.”

He then name-dropped Vice President Kamala Harris (D). He describes the country’s second-highest elected official as someone who has “fame” and uses it to “promote” Cardi B.

“I realize that Kamala Harris has used her fame to promote this performer, but I assure the FCC that millions of Americans will view her performance as inconsistent with basic decency.”

“Wake up, FCC, and begin to do your job. The moral decline of America is partly due to your utter complacency,” he claimed.

This is far from Grothman’s first time complaining of “moral decline,” particularly toward LGBTQ people. He has a notable anti-LGBTQ history and a consistent anti-LGBTQ voting record, with a zero rating from the Human Rights Campaign Congressional Scoreboard.

Before making it to the House, he attacked opponents of Uganda’s anti-gay law, warning that people like then-Secretary of State John Kerry will bring about God’s judgment on America for his criticisms of Uganda.

“What we have is the Secretary of State going to Africa and educating Ugandans or saying he is going to send American scientists to Uganda to explain how normal homosexuality is. Think about that. I mean, what must God think of our country?” he said at the time.

In 2010, he opposed a law that would have allowed educators to combat anti-LGBTQ bias and discrimination, claiming it furthered the “agenda.”

“Part of that agenda which is left unsaid is that some of those who throw it out as an option would like it if more kids became homosexuals,” he said.

He’s also suggested that having transgender people being in the military was a “goal” of Hillary Clinton and other Democrats to further the “moral decline” of America, because he saw a character in the TV show M*A*S*H* try to cross-dress as a way to attempt getting out of the military.

Just last month, he said that Black Lives Matter and their supporters were “a group that doesn’t like the old-fashioned family” and claimed a bill that would include a tax for single people was “a marriage penalty.”

In response to video of Grothman’s latest comments, Cardi wrote in a tweet, “Smh! THERES PEOPLE DYING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

She continued, “this gets me so mad ya don’t even know! I think we all been on the edge this week since we seen police brutality back to back including watching one of the biggest case in history go down DUE to police brutality…

“…but wait ! This is wat [a] state representative decide to talk about.”

She tweeted again, adding that in Grothman’s state, Jacob Blake can’t get “proper justice” or a “word” from the likes of Grothman. “This is part of the reason why !!!!! They giving seats to FUCKIN IDIOTS!!”

Cardi concluded, “this is why people gotta vote, elect better people cause you got these dum asses representing states.”

She also liked a tweet that said, “Out of all the stuff that’s going on in the world you talk about Cardi B, not police brutality or the capitol storm[ing] but Cardi B.”

Cardi came out in 2018 after featuring on the anthem “Girls” with out singer Rita Ora, in addition to Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX. “Girls” received criticism from LGBTQ people about its lyrics that presented bisexuality as a way to titillate straight men.
