RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 recently ended.

RuPaul compared Donald Trump’s presidency to Hitler in a twitter following the Republican’s win as president-elect.

The drag extraordinaire had a lot to say on the soon to be president, but mostly made a point about understanding how Germany let Hitler come into power.

RuPaul has repeatedly spoken against Trump and been a staunch Hillary supporter.

In an interview with Vulture Magazine RuPaul said: “Do you want a pompous braggart who doesn’t know anything about diplomacy? Or do you want a badass bitch who knows how to get shit done?”

In the rant RuPaul quoted the philosopher George Santayana, who warned about learning from the mistakes in the past in order to avoid repeating them in the future.

RuPaul confirmed who he would be voting for ahead of the US presidential election.

The Drag Race star declared the vote “the most important election in HERstory” as he urged Americans to “vote for your life”.

The Emmy award-winner backed Hillary Clinton in a video which he ended with the message that was a popular slogan throughout the campaign, “I’m with her”:

The endorsement contrasted the views of fellow Drag Race judge Lucian Piane, who has consistently criticised Clinton during the run up to the election.

The gay music producer took a swipe at a host of LGBT celebrities including Mama Ru herself in a rage fuelled twitter rant.
