While the far-right has demonized drag queens as predators intent on turning kids transgender, they’ve conveniently forgotten the long history drag has in American entertainment. So who better to remind them than the ultimate gender bender?

Bugs Bunny.

Looney Tunes celebrated the beginning of Pride Month with a Twitter drag show. Bugs served up six different looks from various decades of his hilarious crossdressing.

Bugs, most famously voiced by Mel Blanc, made drag a career within a career, appearing in over 40 cartoons in lipstick and/or a dress, from his cross-dressing debut in Hare-um Scare-um in 1939 to Joe Dante’s Looney Tunes: Back in Action in 2003, when Bugs confronts a Warner Bros. VP played by Jenna Elfman and cracks wise, “Lady, if you don’t find a rabbit with lipstick amusing, you and I have nothing to say to each other.”

But the replies continued the fun and celebration of the queer community by the Acme intern running the account, fans, and corporations.

Former George Santos aide said he paid at least $750 to get his job in Congress
