Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has beclowned himself and degraded the dignity of his high office by making an appearance on a show about drag queens.
The left-wing Canadian politician’s appearance on the program, which has not yet been released, has been teased in a trailer for “Canada’s Drag Race: Canada vs the World” and in a tweet that appears to feature a photo of Trudeau on the program.

“We’re making herstory!” the tweet exclaims. “We’re honoured to welcome the Prime Minister of Canada @JustinTrudeau to #CanadasDragRace, becoming the first world leader to appear on the Drag Race franchise!”
In the U.S., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, has previously appeared on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.”
“Your freedom of expression of yourselves in drag is what America is all about,” Pelosi said on an episode of the show that was released earlier this year. She had previously been on the program several years earlier as well.
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York appeared “RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 12. In a clip promoting the drag queen-related program, she said, “I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and I pledge allegiance to the drag.” In a tweet, the lawmaker described being on the show as “absolutely, 100% a peak experience.” While talking to drag queens on “Untucked: RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Ocasio-Cortez called them “patriots.”
Ocasio-Cortez and Pelosi both cruised to victory this week in their respective 2022 election contests. Pelosi’s husband Paul was assaulted in the couple’s San Francisco home last month, though the congresswoman was not in the city at the time of the incident.
Earlier this year, Trudeau said that he understood people’s frustration with COVID-19-related mandates but claimed that “mandates are the way to avoid further restrictions.”
