Explanation of the fight on Twitter between George Santos and Trixie Mattel

Even if you haven’t been following the news closely, you’re probably more than aware of George Santos, the first-term House member representing New York’s 3rd Congressional District, whose congressional debut marred by various accusations. and scandals. Honestly, I can’t even get into all of them here.

But one of the most recent was an unconfirmed rumor that he had performed as a drag queen named Kitara Ravache in Brazil, which was backed up by a photo of someone who looked a lot like him in costume. George denied this, saying it was “categorically untrue”.

The latest media obsession that I am a drag queen or that I “acted” like a drag queen is categorically false. The media continues to make outrageous claims about my life as I work for results. This will not distract me or bewilder me.

This is especially ironic, considering how far-right politicians and media figures have attacked drag queens over the past year with dangerous accusations that are not only false but also endanger drag queens’ lives.

George later appeared to confirm to reporters that it was him in the photo and videos, but also said that she was not a drag queen:

Of course, all of this has been late-night talk show fodder. And Jimmy Fallon had iconic comedian Jon Lovitz on his show to play George and poke fun at all the rumors and scandals surrounding him.

Well, apparently George didn’t like any of his impersonations and caught Jon’s eye in particular in a tweet yesterday:

Now I’ve been enshrined in late-night TV history with all these imitations, but so far they’re all TERRIBLE. Jon Lovitz is supposed to be one of the greatest comedians of all time and that was embarrassing – for him, not me! These comedians need to step up their game.

This prompted the one and only Skinny Legend, Trixie Mattel, to chime in for some light and fun reading:

Well, the inner Kitara Ravache jumped in and said, “Oh, you want to read? Well, the library is open!” George responded by mentioning the infamous Trixie all stars 3 Snatch game performance:

Also clearly, it seems that George is a fan of drag race.

But George wasn’t done yet and decided to do one final blow, and I hate to say it, but he ate quite a bit:

@trixiemattel It’s all good! I also won my race against the fan favorite. 💪🏼🇺🇸

If you read that and wonder what it means, well, Trixie won. all stars 3 about favorite Shangela.

Now, Twitter is Twitter, there were a LOT of people who had some funny responses to all of this sharing:

But really, the best tweet had to come from “America’s True News Source,” Pop Crave, who tweeted this headline:

Since last night, Trixie hasn’t responded to George’s latest tweet, so I guess it’s safe to say that the library is officially closed.
