here’s how you know it’s true – he will deny it.

Is he just banking on being useful long enough to avoid his colleagues sending him to the camps; or is this another weird detail in his rich fantasy life?

Did we all notice that “George Santos” more than once failed to recognize that his vote had been called for when “his name” was shouted? Makes one wonder what his real name might be. And is checking on someone’s citizenship status really such a lengthy procedure for the DOJ? Or do they know and for reasons of their own not want to make that simple result known?

Everything about Santos makes him look like someone who is just working politics as another con.

America. What a country. Where guys like Kanye West, Steven Miller, Enrique Tarrio, and now George Santos (if that is his real name) can all be white supremacists.

Truly, the land of opportunity.

I mean it’s possible to be all three at once including a white supremacist on top of those, but with this guy just assume everything he says is a fiction.

But as long as Santos votes in accordance with the MAGA agenda, the GOP won’t do anything about it.

His making “white power” gestures will make the party feel a little better about it, though.

So what you’re saying is, he’s a Republican?

That hand symbol used to mean “Okay!” Unfortunately, 4chan and reddit users changed its meaning to:

I’m a mediocre person with no big ideas, but I really really want power and acknowledgement, and I’m willing to **** a redneck **** now and again to get it!

Not Jewish…Jew-ish.

That was after he had lied about having Jewish grandparents.

I mean… of course. There’s no bottom here, just infinite digging.

I don’t know that it’s even a fantasy life so much as a compulsive need for attention/approval/money in any given situation with no care for, much less attempt at, consistency.

Truly, he has finally found his people.

What’s funny is how even his denials and “corrections” are themselves lies. He says his grandparents fled the Holocaust, that he’s “a proud American Jew,” but then claims he said “Jew-ish, not Jewish” when I’m not even sure he called himself “Jewish” in the first place - he was far more specific than that.

How is it that this country deported veterans, people who serve our country honorably in the armed forces but keeps George Santos?

He’s wanted for crimes abroad. Let Brazil extradite him.
