UPDATE, March 10, 2022 4:39 p.m. EST: The House of Representatives on Wednesday night passed a massive $1.5 trillion spending bill, cutting into the original schedule for the House Democrats' retreat. Politico reported that the event that had been slated to feature drag queen Lady Bunny on Wednesday night was scrapped.
Original story below:
During the House Democrats' retreat this week, a Wednesday night reception hosted by Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Sean Patrick Maloney will include "musical entertainment by Lady Bunny," according to a copy of the Issues Conference schedule posted by the Daily Caller.
"While her mind may be in the gutter, Lady Bunny’s quick-witted humor is authentic, smart, irreverent, and topical," a portion of the biography on ladbybunny.net states. "In her disarming honeyed drawl, she astutely skewers political correctness, calls out gentrification outrage, spit-roasts politicians, taunts vaunted celebrities, and schools audiences on the unique legacy of New York City drag."
The drag performer — whose birth name is Jon Ingle, according to the New York Times — identifies as a "staunch progressive" but has previously been openly critical of Democrats, including President Joe Biden.
"Biden is senile, conservative, accused by 8 women and a frequent liar. It takes a cult of personality to support someone that pitiful," Lady Bunny tweeted last year.
In January, Lady Bunny commented on the prospect of another Hillary Clinton presidential bid by declaring, "If Dems go this route, they are begging to lose. What will the slogan be? 'We know Joe's a corporate hawk and a liar. But unlike Biden, Hillary's not senile!'"
In December, the drag queen fired back at Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California after the lawmaker suggested that only people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 should be allowed to fly.
"On a flight now to Bay Area and it is one-hundred percent batty that the unvaccinated are allowed to fly," Swalwell tweeted. "It’s unsafe in the cabin and we are transporting the virus. Requiring the vaccine to fly is the LEAST we can do to stop the spread."
"I'm vaccinated and boosted. But are you not aware that vaccinated people can also transmit and get COVID?" Lady Bunny replied. "So you're essentially saying 'No one should fly.' PS: Here's a pic of you wearing the least effective kind of mask. Maybe YOU shouldn't be on planes ..."
