“For someone like Obama to survive – he’s a very smart man – he’s had to do some dumb things because people, people don’t want the truth. It’s the same thing with drag. You know, drag breaks the fourth wall and people have been up against drag because drag queens are saying, ‘You’re not who you think you are. You’re not who you appear to be on your driver’s license or your birth certificate. You are actually – you’re actually God in drag.’ But nobody wants to break that fourth wall. Nobody wants to hear the truth like that. You have to dumb it down. And it’s unfortunate because we all suffer when we dumb it down,” he said of President Obama’s policies.
RuPaul also spoke his mind over the controversy on the recently canceled ABC sitcom Work It and the apology by Lance Bass for using the word “tranny.” “It’s ridiculous! It’s ridiculous… I love the word ‘tranny.’ You have to go to the intent of the person saying it. Of course Lance Bass’ intent would never be to be derogatory. Never. So, you know, that’s really ridiculous. And I hate the fact that he’s apologized. I wish he would have said, ‘F-you, you tranny jerk!'” And, RuPaul added, “if you’re offended by someone calling you a tranny, it was only because you believe you are a tranny! (laughs) So then, the solution is: Change your mind about yourself being a tranny.”
