In an interview with Vulture, RuPaul described the Democratic nominee as a “f—king awesome” and a “badass b--- who knows how to get s--- done.”

RuPaul said any politician has to make compromises to get things done, saying that you can't "go to f----ing Washington and be rainbows and butterflies the whole time."

"So now, having said that, think about what a female has to do with that: All of those compromises, all of that s---, double it by 10," he said. "And you get to understand who this woman is and how powerful, persuasive, brilliant, and resilient she is. Any female executive, anybody who has been put to the side — women, blacks, gays — for them to succeed in a white-male-dominated culture is an act of brilliance. Of resilience, of grit, of everything you can imagine. So, what do I think of Hillary? I think she's f---ing awesome. Is she in bed with Wall Street? Goddammit, I should hope so! You've got to dance with the devil.” 

RuPaul said the choice was between Clinton and "pompous braggart who doesn't know anything about diplomacy," referring to Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpGOP-Trump trade fight boils over with threat to cars Trump: Meetings on potential North Korea summit going 'very well' Freed American 'overwhelmed with gratitude' after being released from Venezuela MORE.
