Trump to Be Parodied By Drag Race U.K.’s The Vivienne in New Show

A diptych of The Vivienne as Donald Trump and Baga Chipz as Margaret Thatcher.

Snatch Game has become a signature of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Every queen knows that the challenge will appear at some point during the competition, somewhere towards the middle, and that she must prepare for it. To even qualify for the show, you have to do a version of Snatch Game in your audition. And now, for the first time, Snatch Game is getting a bit of a spinoff.

In the debut season of RuPaul’s Drag Race U.K., season winner The Vivienne and finalist Baga Chipz made standout appearances in the Snatch Game. Portraying Donald Trump and Margaret Thatcher respectively, the two hit literally every mark, blending an impeccable impersonation, with humor, and the perfect improv timing. Honestly, Vivienne’s Trump should go down in Drag Race herstory. And it will, sort of.

Launching Thursday, December 12, Vivienne and Chipz will reprise those roles for a spinoff show. Titled Morning T&T, the show is styled like a morning news broadcast. There hasn’t been much of any information announced about the series, except the tagline: “All tea, no quid pro quo.” Some have reported that the venture will be a spoof on Good Morning, Britain.

There have been no guest appearances announced but the pair have an amazing friendship, as evidenced by their season, and could definitely carry the show just bantering back and forth. 

“This is the pinnacle of morning television ladies and gentleman,” The Vivienne said in the trailer a la Trump. Is this the next UNHhhh?! Morning T&T will stream on WOW Presents Plus.

This show is not the only spinoff coming from Drag Race U.K. While The Vivienne didn’t win any cash alongside her crown after besting her competitors in the season, she did win her very own show and a trip to Los Angeles. The Vivienne Takes Hollywood is expected to debut in 2020.
