Alicia Keys References Trump Impeachment, Cardi B in Grammy Performance

The singer Alicia Keys referenced Donald Trump‘s impeachment, tells President to “get out” of the White House and called for the rapper Cardi B to enter politics as she opened the Grammys on Sunday night in Los Angeles, The Hill reports.

The singer and Grammy host performed a song at the 62nd annual music event, referencing various events that unfolded over the past year, including the impeachment proceedings “tonight we must unite, despite of all the news that we’re seeing,” she said. Keys then urged rapper Cardi B to get involved, singing: “Commander in chief impeached/Ya’ll get out/Let’s bring Cardi B.

She added: “Cardi, can you please show these people what to do?”

Cardi B, 27, an outspoken Trump critic, who endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination last year, announced that she was considering becoming a politician.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper, who was born Belcalis Almánzar, tweeted earlier this month: “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress.I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense.I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”

In her Grammys tune on Sunday, Keys sang to loud applause from the audience: “It’s just too many lies/Too much hate, too much spin/It’s when good people do nothing, that the bad guys win.”
