RuPaul, actor, drag queen and host of Emmy-nominated show RuPaul’s Drag Race, has some thoughts about the presidential election.

When asked about his feelings on the Democrats and Hillary Clinton by Vulture, RuPaul shared:

“I f***ing 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 you can get this other thing over here. And if you think that you can go to f***ing Washington and be rainbows and butterflies the whole time, you’re living in a f***ing fantasy world.”

“So now, having said that, think about what a female has to do with that: All of those compromises, all of that sh*t, 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 out to the side – women, blacks, gays – for them to succeed in a white-male-dominated culture is an act of brilliance.”

RuPaul went on to share that he thinks Clinton is “f***ing awesome” and he hopes that she is “in bed with Wall Street.”

He also posed a “question” which seemed more like an endorsement than anything else: “So which of the horrible people do you want? That’s more of the question. Do you want a pompous braggart who doesn’t know anything about diplomacy? Or do you want a bada** b**ch who knows how to get sh*t done? That’s really the question.”

Clinton has made LGBTQ rights a regular focus in her run for the White House having stated that she would make a LGBTQ Equality Act a “top priority.” She’s also spoken out against gay “cure” therapies.

On the flip side, Clinton’s political rival Donald Trump has claimed he would “strongly consider” overturning same-sex marriage in the United States and has voiced his support for North Carolina’s anti-trans law.

When RuPaul was asked about Trump, he suggested that the GOP nominee represents our culture making a “violent change from caterpillar to butterfly.”

“When you break it down, this is about mankind moving forward and the people who are resisting that forward movement. When a butterfly makes a metamorphosis from being a caterpillar, there’s a violent exchange between caterpillar and butterfly.”

“And what we’re witnessing is this violent exchange and a rejection of the movement forward. It’s so uncanny, and it’s so clear that that’s what’s happening, even as it relates to what’s happening around the world, with these horrible tragedies. These are people who are rejecting the forward motion of mankind,” he added.
