There's a few things you can count on RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 winner Aquaria for: pulling looks, stunting pretty, a Lady Gaga megamix and a Melania Trump impression. With Donald Trump and First Lady Melania having announced they had contracted the virus at the center of the ongoing pandemic, it was only a matter of time before Aquaria put on her long and wavy brown wig. And that she did.
"Hello my fellow Americans," she says at the beginning of the video in her Melania accent, wearing the wig, and a mask. "It is true, my phone has been going off nonstop all day long. I, as well as my husband Donald, have contracted —" there's a series of nasty coughs before, "we have contracted the deadly H1N1," then there's a moment before she corrects herself with the virus's actual name. For those who don't remember, H1N1 is commonly referred to as swine flu.
"It is not contagious and thankfully I have been wearing a mask this entire time that I have met many, many, many people," she continues as her masks — and its efficiency — drops from her face. "And we are social distancing from our safe bunker — I mean quarantine."
In a follow-up video we see Aquaria as Melania, giving instructiosn on how to wash your hands, to your favorite song. Melania, of course, has chosen "WAP" by Meg Thee Stallion and Cardi B.
The videos are come in a series of clips from Aquaria whose impression of the First Lady went down in Snatch Game herstory on her season of Drag Race. Since she's gone back to the well multiple time, recreating clips, and parodying Melania on social media. But, Aquaria's connecton to the visible face goes back further than that as before the election she had made a Lady Gaga and Lana Del Ray mix spliced with Melania sound bites.
