To recap, George “Anthony Devolder” Santos (R-NY) has been busted for lies about:
- Where he went to high school
- Where he went to college
- Having bachelor’s and master’s degrees
- Being a star player on the college volleyball team
- Working at Goldman Sachs and Citigroup
- Being the grandson of Holocaust survivors
- Being the son of a 9/11 victim
- Running a legit animal rescue charity
There’s also the mystery of where he got all that money after getting bounced from a couple of modestly priced apartments for non-payment of rent, etc.
But the drag queen denial is my favorite in the series so far, maybe because harassing drag queens is the preferred pastime of the humorless prick who is my governor.* When the rumor that Santos had performed in drag in Brazil broke, he huffed the following on Twitter yesterday:
The most recent obsession from the media claiming that I am a drag Queen or “performed” as a drag Queen is categorically false.
The media continues to make outrageous claims about my life while I am working to deliver results.
I will not be distracted nor fazed** by this.
See, drag ain’t George/Anthony’s bag, baybee!
Headline in today’s New York Post:
Video shows drag-denier George Santos dressed in drag, boasting about drag shows
I understand that the presence of a pathological liar like Santos and other assorted lunatics in the House GOP caucus raises concerns about the health of our democracy, but this is some genuinely funny shit, man!
*As some wag pointed out, there is surely at least one Florida drag queen using the stage name Rhonda Santis. My guess is there are several!
**Astonished kudos to Santos for not spelling this word “phased.” It’s like coming across “ice floe” in the wild!
