The Drag Race winner covered the Yeah Yeah Yeah's hit in Pittsburgh Monday night. 

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kathy Griffin's month just brightened. Season 4 winner of Drag Race Sharon Needles, freshly back from a trip to Tel Aviv, impersonated the outspoken comic at a P Town bar. In her Monday night act at the Pittsburgh establishment, she donned a red wig and held a blood-spattered Trump head, while performing to the Yeah Yeah Yeah's hit, "Heads Will Roll." Get it?

Griffin has been under fire this month for a Tyler Shields photoshoot in which she posed with a decapitated model of President Trump's head. "I'm not afraid of Trump," the 56-year-old said during a recent press conference on the issue. "He's a bully. I've dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole career."

Needles weighed in on the Griffin controversy. "It's kind of mind boggling the levels to this story, that a female comic in this day and age, who was a friend of Joan Rivers, and who was on Celebrity Apprentice with our president, is subjected to this type of abuse," she said, according to WOW. "I mean... if only Joan was still around. And the fact that we don't hold our male politicians to the same standard as female comedians is shocking...

Needles also revealed that her Griffin hairdo and Trump mask were fashioned from a Joan Rivers wig and Owen Wilson mask. Watch the drag star's performance, below.
