QUEER VOICES

Here's What Happened When A Drag Queen Interviewed Trump Supporters

👀 👀 👀

We’re at that point in this election cycle where people are no longer being coy about their bigotry ― something Junkee learned first hand when they sent Australian drag queen Courtney Act to a Trump rally to interview the Republican nominee’s supporters.

The results are... troubling, and certainly not funny anymore as the presidential election looms even closer. The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum encountered many different shades of bigotry, including one woman who had some very perplexing ideas about Islam.

“It doesn’t matter what your religion is, but I do believe that the Muslim is not a religion,” she says in the above video. “I believe it’s more of a cult and if people got together and sacrificed a human baby or sacrificed a woman at the stake, I would say that people would probably say that’s not a good religion. Like Satanic cults, for instance, they’re not legal in our country and therefore I don’t believe Sharia law should be legal either.”

However, not everyone at the rally was so out of touch. Courtney Act also met a group of young protestors who got SO excited after recognizing the star from “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

Watch the results for yourself above.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
