Even if you haven't been following the news closely, you're probably more than aware of who George Santos is — the first-term House member who represents New York's 3rd Congressional District, and whose debut in Congress has been marred by several allegations and scandals. Honestly, I can't even get into all of them here.
But one of the most recent was an unconfirmed rumor that he had performed as a drag queen named Kitara Ravache in Brazil — which was backed up by a photo of someone who looks a lot like him in drag. George denied it and said that it was "categorically false."
George later seemed to confirm to reporters that it was him in the photo as well as in videos, but he also said he was not a drag queen:
Of course, all of this has been fodder for the late-night talk shows. And Jimmy Fallon had the iconic comedian Jon Lovitz on his show to portray George and poke fun at all the rumors and scandals surrounding him.
Well, apparently George didn't like any of the impersonations of him, and called out Jon's performance in particular in a tweet yesterday:
This led to the one and only Skinny Legend herself, Trixie Mattel, stepping in to give a little light and funny read:
Well, the inner Kitara Ravache jumped out and said, "Oh, you want to read? Well, the library is open!" George responded by bringing up Trixie's infamous All Stars 3 Snatch Game performance:
And, of course, Trixie had a brilliant response to that:
But George wasn't done just yet, and decided to go in for one final blow — and I hate to say it, but he kinda ate:
Now, Twitter being Twitter, there were a LOT of people who had some hilarious responses to this whole exchange:
But really, the best tweet had to come from "America's True News Source," Pop Crave, which tweeted this headline:
Since last night, Trixie has not responded to George's latest tweet, so I guess it's safe to say that the library is officially closed.
