Fox News star Kayleigh McEnany called out Joe Biden after reports emerged that revealed the Democrat president has been using taxpayer funds to pay for “drag shows” in foreign countries.
Biden’s State Department awarded a $20,000 grant to a cultural center in Ecuador.
The money was used to host “drag theater performances” to “promote diversity and inclusion.”
The State Department awarded a $20,600 grant on Sept. 23 to the Centro Ecuatoriano Norteamericano (CEN), a non-profit organization supported by the U.S. Embassy in Ecuador.
The project started on September 30 and runs until August 31, 2023.
It will include “3 workshops,” “12 drag theater performances,” and a “2-minute documentary.”
McEnany fired back over the revelation, saying:
“Because this makes sense…”
