Drag Queen Barbra Seville Trolls Arizona Loser Kari Lake

Seville, who called out the Arizona governor candidate for hypocrisy, took inspiration from an iconic Game of Thrones scene.

Trump-loving, drag queen-hating Republican Kari Lake has now lost the Arizona governor's race to Democrat Katie Hobbs, and drag performer Barbra Seville is happily trolling Lake.

Richard Stevens, who does drag under the Seville name, called out Lake for hypocrisy during the campaign, noting that he had frequently performed for her, at a party in her home and elsewhere, and considered her a friend -- but she had tweeted, "They kicked God out of schools and welcomed the Drag Queens. They took down our Flag and replaced it with a rainbow." Lake also used the "groomer" slur against LGBTQ+ people.

Lake, a former Phoenix TV anchor, responded by claiming at least one performance by Stevens was not a drag show and by sending a cease-and-desist letter. Stevens continued criticizing Lake, however.

The governor's race was called Monday for Hobbs, currently the Arizona secretary of state. The official Barbra Seville Facebook page was filled Tuesday with slams against Lake. Posting as Seville, Stevens put up a picture of a Chinese food carton labeled "Kari Out" and a photo of him as Seville saying, "Tell Kari, I want her to know it was me," a Game of Thrones reference.

Lake has not conceded the election. She sent out this tweet Tuesday morning:

National Review, a mainstream conservative publication, notes that the deadline to "cure," or correct, ballots has already passed in most Arizona counties and that Lake is "extremely unlikely to cure another 18,580 votes, or find a way to legally disqualify 18,580 votes for Hobbs."

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, a Republican who has bucked her party and lost her seat because of it, trolled Lake as well. During the campaign, Cheney had said that if she lived in Arizona, she would vote for Hobbs. Lake claimed that her own campaign actually benefited from Cheney's support for Hobbs, but now that Lake has lost, Cheney clapped back at her on Twitter.
