Big Name Political Figures Transformed Into Drag Queens

Just in time for the kickoff of a new season of RuPaul's Drag Race, a crop of some of modern history's biggest political figures have been turned up in drag. Artist Saint Hoax has unveiled the controversial "War Drags You Out" series featuring drag alter-egos for some of the world's most powerful men. 

Saint Hoax explains:

The recipe for an iconic queen:
1- Flamboyant name
2- Fierce persona
3- Defining outfits
4- Personalized hairdo 

5- A trademark feature
6- One hell of a PR team

I instantly realized that It takes that same exact effort to make a leader. 
A rush of images containing Hitler's mustache, Bin laden's headgear, Obama's campaigns, Saddam's narcisism crossed through my mind. It got me thinking that behind every "great" man, there's a queen. 

Just like drag queens, political leaders are expected to entertain, perform and occasionally lip-sync a public speech. But unlike drag queens, the fame hungry leaders don't know when to take their costumes off.

Saint Hoax's controversial images include:

Hitleria Hysteria 

Madame O' Sane

Vladdy Pushin

Baricka O'Bisha

Ossie B

Georgia Buchette

Queen Abby


The last image above, of King Abdallah of Saudia Arabia, has brought Saint Hoax the most vocal outrage thus far, BuzzFeed points out

“Shame to you who post the picture, just want to say those who are trying to disgrace by posting this kind of unacceptable picture about King Abdullah, you should know that king abdullah is a model leader to the arab world,” one Facebook user said. 

What do you think of Saint Hoax's series? 


@steven unlike most, I have no ego to be checked. I clearly am coming from an unbiased point of view. Maybe, it is you with the ego?

I have great joy in my heart as I'm writing this testimony about the great man called Dr.Zabaza, When my lover left me, I thought i will not be able to get her back after all she has put me through, but I am so happy that after the interference of Dr.Zabaza, I was able to get my lover back within 48 hours. And I can proudly say that who ever need help in getting his lover back should contact Dr.Zabaza on these contact details below; +2348182620374 or for quicker response of what I have just witness.

I actually met a Drag Queen that looked a lot like Georgia Buchette. She was amazing!

Queen Abby also has a great rack.  Love it.

This is interesting, creative, and funny. If you're not amused, move along. 

where is Bill Clinton ?

Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein were mass murderers.  This should be offensive to all of you.  It is not interesting, artistic, entertaining.  It is a bad idea the belongs in the trash can.

I love it!


Love it!! I know if Barack saw this he'd smile. If King Abdullah is such a model guy then he'd have a smile at this too. 

got to admit, Vladdy was pretty awesome. Could ALMOST be a Bond girl (or a Bond villain).

Now, do a drag king version with Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel, Sarah Palin and Kate Middleton. PLEASE. 

It's not personal,it's drag/art !

Great work, I just with that these didn't include some evil people! Very jarring to see that. This would have been fun if it did not include murderous people. 

Clever artist work, but rather boring and sensationalist.

oK, Which is clever? The work of the artist that although clever is boring & sensationalistic? Or the artist is clever but produces work that is boring and sensationalistic?  I may not be clever but I know who is the other. (:-)

I was thinking the artist is clever, but the article is boring and sensationalist.

This was hilarious. Some people are just so uptight. Compared to the abundant conspiracies all of these politicians have been in, this artwork is just childs play! Laugh people!! :D

i wont even look at them...when i saw osama was one i did not wait to see the reults..this is insulting and beneath any level of intelligence.

What was the point in even commenting Rob? Calm your tits woodwork.

Who are you to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't say in a public forum?  Check your ego.

I didn't see anyone telling anyone else they should or shouldn't do anything. I saw a question. You, Steven, also need to calm your tits.

thanks for a good laugh Raunda.. this was brilliant for whoever created it.
