Cardi, 29, then suggested that Americans are not sufficiently informed about important historical events.
She said: “I wish I could talk more about the history and the one-sided history that this school gives us. In addition to all this ‘Latin lesson’ that I am giving you, I have learned so much that if I ‘talk about it, I feel like the government is going to TURN me OFF. I’m just going to talk about it to myself. (sic) “
