“You put on a drag queen story hour on a Saturday for the first ever kid-friendly diversity equity inclusion summer festival and at Nellis Air Force Base. You had the drag you Nellis on June 17th. Who funded these things Mr. Secretary?”
Defense Secretary Austin refused to acknowledge that his department provides funding to or support drag shows, and also stated that he has no idea about the incidents that Gaetz mentioned.
“Listen, drag shows are not something that the Department of Defense supports or funds.”
Upon his reply, Gaetz instantly asked:
“Why are they happening on military bases?”
After Austin, Gaetz asked General Miley if he had any information regarding a book written on white privilege by an official from the DOD.
At that moment, it looked like both Austin and Miley had no idea about the book that Gaetz mentioned.
“Can I just can I get copies of those because I’d like to take a look at those myself actually take a look and find out Can I get copies of those? Because I’d like to take a look at those myself, actually, take a look and find out what actually is going on there. Because that’s the first I’m hearing about that kind of stuff.”
“I don’t read those news stories. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’d like to take a look at those because I don’t agree with those. I think those things shouldn’t be happening.”
