News / Worldwide 28 Views

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

The typo wasn’t misplaced on fans of RuPaul or her TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, who have been quick to take notice of the misspelling and playfully declare it as their own on social media.

After the president’s tweet, the hashtag took off with Twitter users proclaiming their allegiance to RuPaul as their candidate of selection.

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.

@RuPaul taking up the Republican Get together. #RUpublican” one fan tweeted.

Another consumer wrote, “Sashay away from the @GOP and be a part of the dragulous #RuPublican Partay!”

One third individual even joked they have been switching events, writing, “Sorry @TheDemocrats, I’m now a #RuPublican!”

Wrote one other: “RuPublicans stand for lip syncing, sickening seems, tongue pops, & dying drops, huntee.”

Derrick Barry, Drag Race season 8 competitor well-known for his Britney Spears impersonation, voiced his help by retweeting RuPaul’s message.

“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.”
