Illustration for article titled These Brilliant GIFs Transform Political Figures Into Drag Queens

Saint Hoax, an artist consumed by "Poplitical Infatuation" developed a series entitled War Drags You Out, study of sorts, mashing up political h and drag culture, two spheres that are far more similar than one would initially think. Saint Hoax explains:

Like drag queens, political/religious 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.

And Saint Hoax's pieces are exquisite, a genius look into the absurd performance of politics. Here's a few:

As Saint Hoax brilliantly puts it, "behind every "great" man, there's a queen."
