Tomi Lahren On Cardi B's 'Dog-Walking' Threat: 'I Would Never Get Away With That'

Ok, Tammy.

Tomi Lahren paid a visit to Fox & Friends, where she discussed her Twitter feud with Cardi B. Last week after the "I Like It" rapper posted a video discussing the partial government shutdown, the right-wing pundit took to Twitter to write out her views on Cardi's comments.

"Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020," she wrote, which prompted Cardi to write that she will "dog walk" her.

“I just like to point out the left’s hypocrisy because can you imagine if I would threaten to dog walk Cardi B — or anyone else for that matter — as a conservative, as a Trump supporter?” Lahren said during her appearance on the show. “I would never get away with that but they’re able to do it, and the left applauds it... you can see that there are leftists with verified accounts who are not only laughing at the fact of me being ‘dog walked’ — they’re tweeting out memes showing me in a leash and a collar with Cardi B walking me. Beyond that, they are actually saying, ‘Yeah, she would hurt you, she would beat you up — I wish we could start a GoFundMe page so we can watch your teeth get knocked out.’"

She also criticized U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't underestimate people from The Bronx (where she and Cardi hail from).

“Well, I’m not surprised at anything Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, but again, I’m also impressed the way the left does the mental gymnastics to justify it,” she said. “...these are elected representatives who are endorsing and saying the same thing. So, you know, it’s really puzzling and troubling.”

Friendly reminder: after over a month, the government is still shut down.

Mary J. Blige Joined By Lil Kim, Method Man For Medley At BET Awards 2019

Mary J. Blige has been known as the Queen of Hip Hop Soul, and is currently celebrating 30 years since beginning her career with signing to Uptown Records in 1989. After accepting her BET Lifetime Achievement Award, the legendary songstress gave a performance of a lifetime at the 2019 BET Awards.

Blige's performance began with a prerecorded intro from longtime friend and collaborator Sean "Diddy" Combs, and she proceeded to join a live band and take viewers on a trip down memory lane with a string of hits from her three-decade run. "My Life," "No More Drama," "I'm Goin' Down," "Be Happy," "Just Fine," and "Family Affair" were all among the smashes that she ran through, wearing multiple all-white ensembles and joining a crew of dancers for choreographed moves.

But she also flexed her star power, bringing out other legends alongside her. The Queen Bee Lil Kim joined Mary for a performance of their iconic song "I Can Love You," before Method Man took the stage to accompany Mary for their hit "You're All I Need To Get By."
