Congressman-elect George Santos would not know the truth if it hit him in the face, because now it’s come out he lied about his mom dying from the 9/11 attacks.
Santos saw a post last year about a ridiculous 9/11 conspiracy theory — that it was a victimless crime — and responded, “9/11 claimed my mother’s life, so I’m blocking so I don’t ever have to read this again.”
Here’s the thing … five months after posting that, he posted this … “December 23rd this year marks 5 years I lost my best friend and mentor … Mom you will live forever in my heart.”
So, in the latest tweet, he’s saying his mom died in 2016, 15 years after the attack.
Santos claimed on his campaign website his mom was in the South Tower on Sept. 11, adding she survived but passed away “a few years later” from cancer. But, 15 years?
This is the latest in a string of fundamental deceptions by Santos, including lying that he went to NYU and Baruch for college yet they have no record of him. Ditto his claims he worked for Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. And of course, there’s the lie that he was Jewish and he explained it by saying he was Jew-ish.
And, here’s the thing … he’s gonna be seated in Congress next month.
