Drag queen sashays into Trump impeachment hearings

Pissi Myles made an unexpected, and quite noticeable, appearance at Wednesday's impeachment hearings.

“It’s a crazy day in Washington! I’m flipping my wig over the high-energy proceedings today," Myles told NBC News. "Tensions are high, and the bar for who’s allowed in the Longworth House is very, very low.”

Myles, according to her bio, is an award-winning drag performer, comedy producer and winner of Philly Drag Wars and Miss Fish NYC who performs regularly in the New York area. Myles is also a regular performer in Fire Island Pines, a largely gay male summer vacation destination, and has a podcast, "My Gay Spooky Family."

“Someone did just ask me last night if there’s anything in D.C. that surprises me anymore,” remarked NBC News’ Heidi Przybyla in a tweet Wednesday morning from Capitol Hill on Myles' grand entrance.

“They scouted him out at his Barracuda show on Sunday," Ayllon added. "I do know they were looking for a comedian who could improv on the spot and deliver the news in a fun way."

A drag queen going through security at the impeachment hearings is seriously relatable content.
