Cory Booker finds out he’s RuPaul’s cousin, says he’s “very happy”

Appearing on the Wendy Williams show, Senator Cory Booker said he was thrilled to find out he’s related to RuPaul, the host of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

RuPaul participated in a show called “Finding Your Roots” where it was revealed the two were related.

Williams said “Cory is RuPaul’s cousin!”

Booker replied “Yes! Yes!”

“Both he and I were subjects of this show, ‘Finding Your Roots.’” Booker explained “Henry Louis Gates has a show where he traces your roots and ancestry. Since Gates keeps the data of past people, he saw RuPaul and I have a very strong common DNA chain which demonstrates that we’re very close cousins.”

“I love RuPaul,” the Democrat Senator added “I haven’t had a chance to talk to him since the news was revealed, but I was very happy about that news and hope he and I can have a family reunion soon.”


Another prominent Democrat who is a big fan of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” is AOC, who appeared on the show earlier this year as a guest judge.
