I think I can guess who the most reviled man in America is – and, no, it’s not him anymore. It is New York Congressman George Santos. Or whatever his real name is.
He’s used several names and variations thereof through the years. Somehow, he managed to hoodwink a majority of voters in his district to cast their ballots in his favor. After all, he was a graduate of a good college; he was an acclaimed college athlete; a Broadway show producer. He was, actually, none of those things.
What he was, and remains, is a liar.
Imagine being the opponent who lost to this charlatan. If I were he or she, I’d be pounding some podium and demanding that Santos – or whoever he is – be recalled. At least, he was taken off two powerful committees by the rest of his Congressional cohorts. I think one of them was the ethics committee. What a laugh! What a farce!
Some members of Congress also want to know about a “missing” $355,000 from the campaign funds of this con artist.
And, have you seen the photos of Santos in drag in Brazil? He doesn’t even make a believable drag queen! And I happen to appreciate a good drag queen. I once – back in the 1980s, I think – attended the Miss Fire Island extravaganza, with a couple of friends. It was a hoot. But, believe me, George Santos in drag wouldn’t stand a chance with these queens.
But, in my opinion, here is the most egregious of the many nefarious deeds George Santos has done: He stole Golden Retriever puppies from the Amish. What? Stealing puppies? From the Amish? It’s almost laughable. From what I hear, he then sold the puppies for a hefty price.
From what I hear, again, the Amish man did not want to take a check for the puppies. He wanted cash. But Santos said he did not have that much cash on him, and convinced the farmer to take a check. I saw photos of the check on ABC’s World News tonight. They are prominently signed by you know who. But, as you would imagine, the check bounced. Insufficient funds, naturally.
I ask you, folks, no matter whether he is a Democrat or a Republican, or an Independent, do we really want or need a Congressman who would steal puppies from the Amish? I think not.
And, I think that it might not be too long before somehow, someone comes up with a valid and perfectly good reason to oust him from his seat. At the very least, it’s a sure bet he won’t win that district again.
He looks so smarmy on TV, every time he is ambushed outside his office by a phalanx of reporters. How did so many people put so much trust in this fake? I love the news footage of Santos scurrying so fast to get inside his office, that he tripped over a newspaper that had been slid under the door. Let’s hope something bigger and badder trips him up, and soon.
A charlatan getting his just reward … you gotta love it!
