(PresidentialWire.com)- Last week, Paramount+ announced that Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi will be appearing on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars” drag show next month.
According to The Hill, Pelosi briefly appeared in a promo for the show where she burped out RuPaul’s go-to line, “Can I get an amen?”
The May 20 guest appearance isn’t San Fran Nan’s first appearance on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” She also turned up on the show in 2018. Pelosi told The Hollywood Reporter after her 2018 appearance that she was “so excited” and “couldn’t resist” appearing on the drag show because people taking pride in themselves and being themselves “is not just a lesson for politicians, but for everyone in the country.”
During her 2018 appearance, Pelosi told the drag queens that they were inspirational because “you really know your power.” Pelosi told the men that putting on a wig, slapping on make-up and a dress is “about taking pride” in themselves.
If they took pride in themselves, they probably wouldn’t need to get up like girls.
It probably isn’t a galloping shock that San Francisco’s congresswoman would be a big draw for a drag show. Pelosi, like Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland, is considered a “gay icon” in the City by the Bay. Besides, like the drag queens, Nancy is an expert at drawing on overly-exaggerated eyebrows that give her face that perpetually-surprised look.
Pelosi isn’t the first politician to land a guest appearance on a TV show.
Last month, Georgia loser Stacey Abrams had a walk-on appearance during the season finale of “Star Trek: Discovery” where she played the President of United Earth.
The late Senator John McCain had an uncredited, non-speaking walk-on role during an episode of the hit show “24.”
And former Virginia Governor (and 2021 loser) Terry McAuliffe also had a non-speaking cameo in Season 7 of the Showtime series “Homeland.”
