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.
