There’s a new political celebration in the combine — no less than based on Twitter: the “RuPublicans.”
President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that the continued impeachment investigation over his relationship to Ukraine was “nonsense,” however it was his closing line that received probably the most attention.
“Rupublicans , go together with Substance and shut it out!” he wrote.
After the president’s tweet, the hashtag took off with Twitter users proclaiming their allegiance to RuPaul as their candidate of selection.
…..the decision with the Ukrainian President was a completely applicable one. As he stated, “No Strain.” This Impeachment nonsense is only a continuation of the Witch Hunt Hoax, which has been happening since before I even acquired elected. Rupublicans, go together with Substance and close it out!

RuPaul (né RuPaul Charles) has made it his trademark so as to add “Ru” to everyday phrases, that includes a “Rudemption Runway” for his reality present and tweeting about the “ruvenge” that is in store for contestants on upcoming episodes.
So both Ru and his followers jumped on the prospect to grow to be “RuPublicans,” envisioning a progressive, liberal celebration with the hashtag #RuPublican.

“Registering as a #RuPublican!” Barry wrote.
RuPaul has been vocal about his political involvement prior to now, encouraging individuals to vote and take action on the problems that they care about. In a NowThis News video before the 2018 midterm elections, he harassed the importance of heading to the polls.
“In my lifetime, I don’t keep in mind it ever being this dark or this divided,” he stated. “I've to consider, every single day I get up, it's shifting ahead.”
