Donald Trump, in his infinite wisdom on Twitter, misspelled the word "Republicans" as "Rupublicans" in a tweet that was once again calling the Ukraine scandal a "witch hunt."

In response, Mama RuPaul and her fans from RuPaul's Drag Race have taken the term all for themselves.

The tweet, which is Trump's usual level of unhinged, was the genesis of the word.

The Republican party—who have a long history of discrimination and ignorance when it comes to the LGBTQ+ community—have never been considered friends of most RuPaul's Drag Race fans.

But the RuPublicans? The political party of Mama Ru herself?

That's a different story.

What's even more puzzling about this is in part one of the tweet, he spells "Republican" completely correctly.

But in part two, Mama Ru's political party is all that there is.

Also, E and U are nowhere near each other on a standard US QWERTY keyboard, so the mystery of how this typo even happened grows deeper and deeper.

But Mama Ru is all in on the RuPublican Party.

Last week, Drag Race UK contestant The Vivienne won the first-ever UK Snatch Game with her Donald Trump impression that left us all gagged.

Hopefully you too will consider joining the RuPublican party.

Sometimes life just doesn't have our best interests at heart.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
