It's the feud no one saw coming... and we never knew we needed. Congressman George Santos has seemingly had enough of being the butt of all jokes on late-night television and has come out swinging against "The RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars 3" winner Trixie Mattel.

As reported by Billboard, Santos has pushed back against impressions of him being a liar and political grifter — despite multiple sources proving him to be just that.

After a night of him being skewered with impressions by Jon Lovitz on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallen" and by Bowen Yang on "Saturday Night Live," Santos took to Twitter to say he was embarrassed for them.

"I have now been enshrined in late night TV history with all these impersonations, but they are all TERRIBLE so far," Santos tweeted. "Jon Lovitz is supposed to be one of the greatest comedians of all time and that was embarrassing for him not me! These comedians need to step their game up."

Wading into the conversation, Mattel replied: "Maybe the source material was weak."

To which Santos shot back: "Clearly you know all about weak acting skills" next to a gif that illustrated Mattel's tragic Snatch Game impression of RuPaul.

And then a feud between one drag queen and another (alleged drag queen) was born.

"I am not an actor! I was young and I had fun at a festival!" Mattel responded, but Santos wanted the last wrote. He added, "It's all good! I won my race against the fan favorite too," in reference to his 2022 campaign against Democrat Robert Zimmerman.

Perhaps Santos is the queen we deserve after all. Check out the exchange below.
