Callout queen.

1. When she hilariously clapped back at Eric Trump, who said she was part of the "Deep State."


2. When she said this about Donald Trump:

Being gay or pro-gay isn’t a bandwagon. You don’t get a free ride anywhere. There’s no music. ... Occasionally we’ll sing “We Are Family,” but that’s about it.
