After being dubbed one of their “Most Influential People,” Nicki Minaj took to the stage during the TIME magazine TIME 100 gala to perform her hit, “Anaconda.”

As one who has claimed to be “very political,” Ms. Minaj decided to dedicate her performance to both Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden. We think in addition to being political, she’s also comical, as she literally said:

“Who do you think likes the biggest butts? Donald Trump or Joe Biden? Trump?”

The rapper made waves as the first black female rapper to grace the cover of the issue series since Lauryn Hill. Some more cool points about Nicki’s profile in the mag included the fact that Lil Wayne penned her intro, and that her views on living unapologetically sent claps and snaps throughout social media.
