Cardi B's latest video collaborator? It's Bernie Sanders

Debate rap, anyone?

In the latest edition of politics makes strange bedfellows, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is teaming up with music superstar Cardi B on a video aimed at attracting the support of young voters.

The Vermont U.S. senator, who will take part in a Democratic debate Tuesday, and the New York rapper, who Sunday criticized Republicans for aligning with President Donald Trump, filmed the video Monday, according to CNN.

"We (are) working on a way to involve more young people in the political process," Sanders told CNN before filming the video. "The future of America depends on young people. They are voting in large numbers, but not large enough numbers."

The video collaboration comes less than two weeks after Cardi praised Sanders in a tweet: "I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I'm really sad how we let him down in 2016. This man been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such along time. Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign."

It looks as if it's a mutual admiration society, as Sanders praised Cardi last week during an interview with ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

Sanders, who has spoken to Cardi B several times, expressed gratitude for her support and told Kimmel (starting at 8:12) that she "is really smart. And she is deeply concerned about what's happening in this country. … She comes from a humble background, she knows what it’s like to live in poverty, to struggle, and she wants to make sure we can improve life for working people in this country and I'm delighted that she’s a supporter."

At the end of a "Pod Save America" podcast last week, Sanders was asked whether Cardi B would perform at his inauguration, should he be elected: "We're putting together a committee to take a look at that."
