A drag queen, who goes by the stage name “Lady Bunny,” roasted Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell over his tweet that complained about the unvaccinated being able to fly.
On a flight now to Bay Area and it is one-hundred percent batty that the unvaccinated are allowed to fly. 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.

Lady Bunny replied, saying that the vaccinated can “transmit and get COVID” and attaching a picture of Eric Swalwell wearing “the least effective kind of mask.”
I'm vaccinated and boosted. But are you not aware that vaccinated people can also transmit and get COVID? 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… pic.twitter.com/boTv8RYsCP

Yet, this past Wednesday, Lady Bunny performed at a reception hosted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chair Sean Patrick Maloney at the House Democrats 2022 Issues Conference.
And Lady Bunny’s shows are “known for rejecting political correctness,” according to Politico Playbook.
Lady Bunny has also suggested recently that Biden is “senile,” a “liar,” and a “corporate hawk” in a tweet saying that Democrats will lose if they choose Hillary Clinton as their 2024 presidential nominee.
Wow. 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!" pic.twitter.com/NOnzsHxesR

Many Republican congressmen speculated that Democrats rushed through a vote on Wednesday to go see Lady Bunny’s performance.

Republican Representative Mike Johnson tweeted a picture of the time Lady Bunny’s performance took place in the 2022 Issues Conference and said Democrats are rushing through the vote to see Lady Bunny.
Pelosi & House Democrats are rushing through a vote today on a massive $1.5 trillion omnibus spending package b/c they have a previously scheduled retreat in Philadelphia this evening—featuring some interesting "entertainment"…

Republican Representative Jim Banks weighed in as well in a tweet, suggesting that the issues retreat should be focused on “gas prices or the crime crisis” instead of “Art and Activism.”
Democrats are headed to a 3 day “issues” retreat in Philadelphia.
What’s not on the agenda? Any mention of gas prices or the crime crisis.
What is? A discussion on “Art and Activism,” a panel with liberal union leaders, and a drag queen performance.
