Trixie Mattel and ‘Drag Race’ queens take down George Santos

Republican Rep. George Santos has thrown shade at the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winner days after the New York congressman denied he was ever a drag queen in Brazil.

I tweet in the post on Monday evening, Santos ignored late-night TV’s recent attempts to ridicule him and the many inaccuracies surrounding his personal and professional accomplishments.

On the January 20 episode of “The Tonight Show,” the comedian Jon Lovitz recited Santos, who downplayed his lies as “decorated.” Over the weekend, “Saturday Night Live” star Bowen Yang portrayed the politician and his alleged alter ego, named Kitara Ravache.

Santos was not a fan.

“I’m now covered in late night TV history with all these impersonations, but they’ve all been terrible so far,” he tweeted. “Jon Lovitz is supposed to be one of the greatest comedians of all time and it was a shame – for him, not me! These comedians need to up their game.”

But Santos hit his game in some of the drag superstars. “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Season 3 winner and musician Trixie Mattel was not in love with Santos’ criticism and let the embattled politician know.

“Maybe the source material was weak,” the “Trixie Motel” star. replied Santos’ tweet.

Santos continued the Twitter beef, recalling one of Trixie’s less famous moments on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.”

In 2018, Trixie embodied RuPaul for “The Snatch Game,” the show’s impersonation and improvisation challenge. Her performance, in front of the Drag Mother herself, fell flat and she landed at the bottom of that episode.

“Obviously you know all about @trixiemattel’s lagging skills,” Santos clap backaccompanying a GIF of Mattel in that infamous moment.

Follow the back and forth. Mattel went back using Santos’ explanation for the recently resurfaced picture of him in a wig, lipstick, jewelry and dress. According to CNN, Santos told reporters that he had never smoked and that he was “young and having fun at a festival.”

“I’m not an actor! I was young and I had fun at a festival,” said the “UNHhhh” co-host, echoing Santos’ line.

Santos replied with more shade, “It’s good! I also won my race against your fan favorite,” referring to Mattel’s “All Stars 3” win over fellow finalists Shangela and Kennedy Davenport.

Mattel and Santos’ Twitter spat came after several “Drag Race” performers shared their thoughts on the Republican representative’s alleged drag life.

Jan Sport, who competed on Season 12 of the series, recreate Santos’ drag look in its entirety on Twitter, from the crystal collar necklace to the edgy smoky eye. “Kitara, I want a word,” Sport captioned a side-by-side photo comparison.

When Santos first denied the draw queen claims on January 19th — “This won’t bother me or scare me,” he promised — “Season 14 contestant Kornbread “The Snack” joked about Jeté that she was close to Santos’ drag persona.

“Nah you lie! We did tip spots together when we started! Cuz remember when you played Christina that one time for the Last Brunch number and I got mad cuz you originally wanted to play Lil Kim but I said I fit better in Lady Marmalade?” she replied.

In another tweetKornbread joked that Santos was taken on loan and “my Got2B” never returned [hairspray] and my nail glue.”

“Drag Race: All Stars” Season 4 co-winner Trinity the Tuck also weighed in, tweeting that Santos is a “busted drag queen and a busted politician”.

The drag performers aren’t the only ones taking shots at Santos. On Monday, Lovitz celebrated the New York politician’s criticism.

“At the end!!! You’re honest about something!!!,” Lovitz tweeted.

Lovitz followed in another tweet: “Thank you [for] the review and advice! You’re right! I need to step up my game! My pathological liar character can’t hold a candle to you!”
