Nicki Minaj cannot get over Donald Trump’s use of the phrase “bad hombres” during the final presidential debate Wednesday night. In a lengthy Instagram post, Minaj critiqued Trump’s choice of words, compared him to a Will Ferrell movie, and proposed a presidential run for Michelle Obama.

“Yo I’m cryin. Like this man really said ‘bad hombres’ at a crucial debate while running for President of the USA!!!!” she starts, later adding, “It’s as tho he really doesn’t know it’s bad.” She joked about Trump’s pronunciation saying, “Pronounced it as hambre like he hungry.”

The artist compares the Republican presidential nominee to a character Ferrell played in the 2012 comedy The Campaign. At one point, Ferrell’s character says, “My hair could lift a car off a baby if it had to.” Sound familiar? “Donald is Will Ferrell in that movie,” Minaj says and explains that in the movie, “the craziest s–t they do, keeps inadvertently moving them up in the polls.”

Minaj has hopes for the future though, urging the first lady to run for the Oval Office: “I think Michelle should absolutely run in 8 years.”
