The basketball star retweeted a video of Oklahoma state senator Nathan Dahm making a mockery of himself in a recent appearance on Apple TV+’s The Problem with Jon Stewart when he got tripped up in his own mental gymnastics around his logic on guns and drag queens.
The comedy icon wasn’t having the Republican hypocrisy and pointed out how a certain group is fine with being entertained by drag queens, but only a certain type of drag performer.
\u201cState Sen. Nathan Dahm (R-OK) has penned several bills loosening gun restrictions, including the nation\u2019s first anti-red flag law.

“We need drag queens to share their talent with us,” Shania Twain told GLAAD during the interview.
“If you’re an enemy of drag, you’re an enemy of mine,” Lopez said during an appearance on The View.
