RuPaul came face-to-face with Donald Trump and gave the president his marching orders.

The mother of drag drew a line under the US election once and for all in a one-off sketch, which she seemingly filmed on the set of Drag Race UK season two.

“The time has come, for you to lip-sync for the presidency,” RuPaul told Trump, played by Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne who appeared through the magic of green-screen.

As America’s sorest loser gesticulated his way through “Champion”, RuPaul cut him off with a buzzer.

“The votes have been counted, America’s made its decision,” she said.

“Donald Trump, sashay away.”

The Vivienne and RuPaul filmed the sketch for World of Wonder’s WOWIE Awards, which took place 4 December.

The digital event also saw performances by current reigning All Star Shea Couleé, who like The Vivienne reprised her Snatch Game character, performing Ru’s “Call Me Mother” as Flavor Flav.

There were also performances by season 12 winner Jaida Essence Hall, as well as Canada’s first Drag Race superstar, Priyanka, and Drag Race Holland champion Peru Envy.

Among the winners of the night were Jackie Cox for Outstanding Thirst Trap, Kamala Harris’ “I’m Speaking” for Outstanding Clapback, Dahlia Sin for Outstanding OnlyFans Creator, Stacey Abrams for Outstanding Politician and Heidi N Closet for Most Improved Makeup.

The Vivienne is glad she can help ‘bring Trump down’.

Since thrilling/grossing out viewers by flirting up a storm with Baga Chipz’s Margaret Thatcher, The Vivienne’s Donald Trump impersonation has been booked and busy.

The Vivienne and Baga were handed their own World of Wonder web series, Morning T&T, with The Vivienne reprising the role in a spin-off, Trump Learns Things, as well as voicing the president for the BBC documentary Trump in Tweets.

Speaking to PinkNews earlier this year, the star revealed the secret to her success.

“As an impersonator you’ve got to use what you’ve got,” she said.

“Even if it’s the most horrible person – you can use that to bring him down. If I can take the p**s out of him, then that’s doing some good.

“The funniest thing is that what I’m saying is all things he’s said. It’s crazy.”
