Nicki Minaj Now in Tussle With White House Over Offer to Visit

It’s definitely been fun watching singer Nicki Minaj respond to leftist attacks after asking questions and saying that people should not be bullied into the vaccine.

She made it clear that she was not opposed to the vaccine and would probably be getting it, but rather was against people being forced into it against their will.

That was too much for some folks like MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who attacked her for raising questions. But Minaj was not shy about responding back, noting how Reid had raised questions about a vaccine under President Donald Trump and bringing up her old blog scandal about homophobic posts.

Then the left really flipped out when Minaj tweeted Tucker Carlson’s comments about her tweets. Carlson said what they were really upset about was Minaj telling people not to be bullied into it. Minaj posted a video clip of the comments with a “bulls-eye” target on it.

Now Minaj is taking on the White House. She said that the Biden Administration invited her to the White House to talk about the vaccine with Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and Dr. Anthony Fauci. She said her manager and publicist were on the call when the White House made the offer. She told them she would rather not travel and proposed a video visit on social media. But she said she hadn’t foreclosed the possibility of an in-person visit.

Minaj tweeted, joking, that she was going to go dressed in pink like Elle Woods from “Legally Blonde.” But that she was going to hold them accountable and “ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human” — a reference to her being attacked to raising questions.

She then made it clear she would be putting real questions to them and showing her followers.

But then she said the White House called her up and didn’t like that she put out that tweet; that they “weren’t too happy” about her talking about a visit.

The White House then suggested to the public that they’d only offered her a call. “As we have with others, we offered a call with Nicki Minaj and one of our doctors to answer questions she has about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine,” the official told Fox News.

That didn’t make Minaj happy, because it sounded like they were claiming she hadn’t been telling the truth about the offer.

Warning for graphic language:

“Do y’all think I would go on the internet and lie about being invited to the f—ing White House? Like what? Do you guys see what is happening right now?” Minaj said in a video post on Instagram. In the video, she also claimed that the Democratic Party and other liberals were trying to “assassinate” her character (although she specifically said she wasn’t referring to the caller from the White House).

It’s pretty clear that Minaj isn’t going to be played around with or stopped from speaking her mind. It sounds like the White House thought they could convince her privately but when she spoke about it and indicated she would make it very public with real questions, they immediately wanted to create some distance. It remains to be seen if they will go through with a phone call/virtual meeting but it sounds like this didn’t go off the way the White House had hoped and only served to red pill Minaj all the more.
