A New Jersey drag queen who interrupted the first public impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill says she is stunned she stole the spotlight at the snooze-fest show.
“I did not think I would be the most interesting thing there today!” Pissi Myles told The Post through laughter on Wednesday night after her Washington cameo went viral.
The award-winning performer from New York City was spotted stalking the halls of the Longworth building in a red latex dress and giant blonde wig — sticking out among the sea of grey suits and grim faces after she was asked to cover the hearings for a news app called Happs.
“It was a lot of fun but it was very serious,” said Myles, 31, whose character is a riff on the actress Missi Pyle.
“It was a bit too close to [American comedy series] Veep on HBO. It was just like you could literally have taken the cast of Veep and put them in the hallway,” she joked.
“Everyone there is so serious and tensions are high and everything is very urgent,” she added.
“I actually thought it was fun that I got to make people stop in their tracks for a second and say ‘Hey, there’s a drag queen here!’”
Myles, who performs a weekly show, said Happs asked her to present the proceedings with levity and bring a different voice to politics.
C-SPAN caught the coiffed reporter entering the building, capturing a security guard scanning her giant wig with a metal detector.
The starlet said she was happy to be there representing marginalized voices such as the queer community, people of color and women.
“I really think it’s important for people like me to be there,” she said — but quickly ruled out a career in politics.
“I don’t think it fits my personality!” Myles quipped.
