Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is set to appear as a guest on the upcoming season of Rupaul’s Drag Race after appearing in a promo video on Twitter.

“I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and I pledge allegiance to the drag,” she said in the promo.

Many conservative pundits were quick to criticize her for wasting her time as a representative, but AOC clapped back with an iconic line from the show.

Ocasio-Cortez is not the first politician to appear on Drag Race, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) was on the show in 2018.

The promo shows other guests who will appear on the show this season including Nicki Minaj, Chaka Khan, Olivia Munn, Jeff Goldbloom and Leslie Jones.

Season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres February 28 at 8:00 p.m. EST on VH1.
