OUTRAGED-ISH: How this Member of the Tribe feels about Santos claims to be “Jew-ish”

SAN-TOAST: George Santos will plead guilty in Brazilian fraud case

Right about now, the only thing that seems real about George Santos is how absolutely fake he is.

Santos lied about his resume and education, but his lies about being Jewish are so extreme, he just proved that the GOP doesn’t care which ass is in a Congressional seat as long as it has an R next to its name.

And that should absolutely not be the standard.

No, I said I was “Jew-ish”

The GOP truly hit a new low in 2022 by running the absolute worst batch of candidates in midterm election history.

I mean, Dr. Oz, Herschel Walker, Kari Lake, Doug Mastriano, and now George “Ish” Santos, who is such an obvious MAGA plant that I want Obvious Plant to make up a fake toy about him.

Instead, please enjoy this meme one of my Twitter followers sent me that made me laugh so hard, no sound came out of me, and then I coughed a whole bunch.

So ANYWAY, in a new interview on Monday with the digital fishwrap known as The New York Post, Santos managed to make things even worse for himself by clarifying some of his former statements, particularly the one where he claimed to be descended from Holocaust survivors but in reality is a devout Catholic who feels “Jew-ish” because he’s sucking up to Rep. Lee “Zippy” Zeldin (R-NY).

Santos has emulated Donald Trump to the point that I think he may have stolen some of Donny’s orange-tinted DNA and then did a crazy lab experiment like Jeff Goldblum in The Fly and he came out as Santostrump.

In trying to defend himself, the Santoliar actually said these words out loud:

“It just strikes me so odd that people are rushing to disinherit me from being Jewish… in an era where anti-Semitism is at an all-time rise,” says Santos, as quoted by Business Insider.  “Here’s somebody who actually cares about Jews… and we have people pushing me away.”

This actually Jewish American would love to know where the DNC opposition research team was during the campaign because Santos has used the “Jew-ish” line repeatedly and no one knew about it until now, which is EXTRA BAD.

It is NOT acceptable for Santos to lie about something as serious as the Holocaust and casually chuckle over anti-Semitism, as he does below in a clip from last month at a meeting at the Republican Jewish Coalition.

The RJC has certainly done a 180 since that interview, releasing a statement on Twitter that is the digital version of rending their garment like disappointed parents who can’t believe they fell for this ligner*. (*Yiddish for liar).

“We are very disappointed in Congressman-elect Santos,” the statement tsked. “He deceived us and misrepresented his heritage. In public comments and to us personally he previously claimed to be Jewish. He has begun his tenure in Congress on a very wrong note. He will not be welcome at any future RJC event.”

Democratic members of Congress were tweeting about Santos on Tuesday, and it would be great to see them taking action besides just tweeting about it.

Look at rat bastard traitor Kevin McCarthy. He KNEW Santos was full of MAGAshit and still did this.

Sorry, Eric Swalwell and Ted Lieu, I love you, but Kevin McCarthy has chosen darkness.


We only have a few days left, and no one should expect the GOP to hold their own accountable.

Here’s a path to keeping another MAGA liar out of Congress, as presented by this challenger.

Don’t expect GOP accountability, there’s no such thing.

At least Twitter pundits were feasting on the spoils of the fabrication fallout. Starting with my favorite of all from the genius that is Paul Rudnick, enjoy the still-burning roasts.
