Impeachment hearings can be such a drag—um, literally.
Today, November 13, marks the first day of the highly anticipated televised impeachment hearings for Tweety McTreason on Capitol Hill. It seems like everyone in Washington, D.C., is there to watch the drama surrounding the anti-LGBTQ POTUS unfold in real time, including New Jersey drag queen Pissi Myles.
Just arrived for #ImpeachmentHearings
Someone did ask me last night if there’s anything in DC that surprises me anymore.

NBC News’ Heidi Przybyla tweeted out a photo of the fabulous queen showing up for the House Intelligence Committee’s hearing, joking in her caption about how nothing in D.C. surprises her anymore.
Twitter had a field day with the pic, with many joking that the queen was actually Rudy Giuliani donning drag again:
“It’s a crazy day in Washington! I’m flipping my wig over the high energy proceedings today,” Pissi told NBC News. “Tensions are high, and the bar for who’s allowed in The Longworth House is very, very low.”
Pissi Myles is broadcasting live from Longworth – about the impeachment hearings. “This is very important to the LGBTQ community,” she said. There have been #impeachment hearings here before but never as live and social media-fueled as these. @CBCTheNational pic.twitter.com/PAQzpg1dLZ

Pissi will be broadcasting live on Twitter for Happs, the first open-source live news network, but let’s hope she gets some TV screen time during the hearings. And let’s be honest, a drag queen will be one of the least ridiculous things we’ll see on Capitol Hill this week.
I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was “just the cutest thing ever.”
