RuPaul lets loose on loving Hillary Clinton and American politics

RuPaul has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality Program

Drag queen and fairy godmother RuPaul has got his wits about him in a recent interview, gabbing on about the state of diversity in Hollywood and Hillary Clinton.

In the interview with Vulture, RuPaul was asked what he thought about the Democrats.

‘I fucking love them. I have always loved them.

‘And let me just say this: If you’re a politician — not just in Washington but in business and industry, you have to be a politician — there are a lot of things that you have to do that you’re not proud of.

‘There are a lot of compromises you have to make because it means that you can get this other thing over here.

‘If you think that you can go to fucking Washington and be rainbows and butterflies the whole time, you’re living in a fucking fantasy world.

‘So now, having said that, think about what a female has to do with that: All of those compromises, all of that shit, double it by ten. And you get to understand who this woman is and how powerful, persuasive, brilliant, and resilient she is.

‘Any female executive, anybody who has been put to the side — women, blacks, gays — for them to succeed in a white-male-dominated culture is an act of brilliance. Of resilience, of grit, of everything you can imagine.

‘So, what do I think of Hillary? I think she’s fucking awesome.’

If that wasn’t enough, he shares his striking view on Clinton’s often critized record on fundraising and ties to finance bigwigs.

‘Is she in bed with Wall Street? Goddammit, I should hope so!

‘You’ve got to dance with the devil. So which of the horrible people do you want?

‘That’s more of the question.’

The rest of the interview covers RuPaul’s recent Emmy nomination (for Outstanding Host for a Reality Program).

The legendary host quips: ‘It’s an image thing… What I’m trying to say is that people put on this face because it makes them look good, but underneath lurking in the subconscious is this other face that you’re thinking, “Ooh, that’s fucking gross!” And most people act from that subconscious, gross place.

‘Will I attend? Yes, because I have to.’

A lady who loves to mince, but doesn’t mince her words.
