Marjorie Taylor Greene has defended her boyfriend after an old video of him dressed in drag went viral online.
A far-right Republican lawmaker from Georgia has slammed drag queens, saying it should be illegal for children to attend their shows.
But that didn’t stop him from endorsing Brian Glenn, who dressed like a woman while an anchor for WFAA-TV in Dallas.
In the video, which has been viewed more than 1.3m times, Glenn, who is wearing a blonde wig, gloves and a pink cardigan, praised how the outfit was making her feel.
“I’m kicking off the boots. I can keep the pantyhose on. It feels really good,” he says in the video.
Green, who is dating the TV journalist following her divorce from Perry Green after 27 years of marriage in September, reported the video on her Twitter account.
“I’m literally lo’ing. @brianglenntv dressed in drag for the morning news in Dallas years ago, reporting on an upcoming local theater production and the morons at Patriot Tech think it’s an attack,” she tweeted Did.” Brian loves throwbacks and reposting. How stupid of the Left.

Glen also reposted the video, poking fun at himself.
“The things I did for morning show television!! Loved it and so did the @wfaa @WFAADaybreak viewers. It’s a good thing I have a sense of humour!”
Green has previously taken a more hardline view of drag.
“What’s the difference between kids stuffing cash in drag queen bras and strippers bras? Nothing. It’s wrong and it’s ideology,” she tweeted on June 15.
