Nancy Pelosi Claims Drag Queens Can Help Politicians Be More Authentic
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said politicians can learn a lesson in “authenticity” from drag queens Thursday after appearing on VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.”
Pelosi sat down with The Hollywood Reporter and said everyone in the county could take a cue from cross dressers and start being themselves.
“Authenticity. Taking pride in who you are. Knowing your power — that’s what I talk about on my brief segment on the show,” Pelosi told the outlet. “This idea of people believing in themselves, being themselves, taking pride in themselves, is not just a lesson for politicians but for everyone in the country. And that’s why I was so excited and couldn’t resist being on the show.

Pelsoi also took the time to bash President Donald Trump in the interview, when she was asked what song she would use to challenge Trump to a lip sync battle.
“You know what? Donald Trump’s policies, the respect I think his administration should have for the LGBTQ community, that’s more important than the fun we might have about his hair or any song he might lip sync,” Pelosi said. “Though I do think he’s lip syncing some of his policies, because when you talk to him, he says, ‘I really am with you on this.’ And then his policy goes and does something else.”
