The two exchanged small talk before Cardi expressed her disappointment in Sanders dropping out. “I had a fit because I was so hurt and upset that you dropped out of the race,” she said. “I keep telling my people and my supporters that you guys really need to go and vote. Now we’re between 45, we ain’t going to name him over here, and Joe Biden.”

Sanders responded that he always intended to endorse the eventual Democratic nominee. He continued to say he wants Biden to push for a $15 minimum wage and cancellation of student loan debt.
