RuPaul Groped By Donald Trump? The Truth Behind The News

By Priya Prateek

Famous drag queen RuPaul has always been plagued by good, bad, strange and spicy controversies. Recent reports suggest that RuPaul claimed Donald Trump made a move on him at a party in 1995. The full-fledged article was published on the World News Daily Report (WNDR) site.

The article stated that the party was an event celebration for the movie To Wong Foo. Since RuPaul was in his full attire, Trump clearly mistook him for a real woman.

“He started grabbing my ass and pulled my dress up to grab my genitals. [Trump] suddenly became very angry. He started yelling and cursing, and he left the party,” RuPaul explained.

The article, which caught everyone’s attention and added some more salt to Trump’s already controversial life, was later discovered to be fake. Originally published on 14 October 2016, World News Daily Report’s article has no basis for its report. It should be noted that WNDR is a fake news outlet. WNDR’s disclaimer notes that the content published is fictional in nature.


The site published an article stating that RuPaul was sexually attacked by presidential candidate Donald Trump. The article received a lot of attention since Donald Trump was already scrutinized for his questionable body language. Many reports even suggested that Trump was intimately involved with his two daughters and his younger daughter even avoided a lip-lock at a public event.

He added: “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

RuPaul’s article added to the wave of accusations of Trump’s inappropriate sexual behavior. The article claims that RuPaul said that he was saved just because he was a man. He felt disgusted because Trump wanted to use him as an object.

While the other reports come with concrete proof and other findings, RuPaul’s article published on  WNDR is completely fake.
