George Santos’s lies are small change compared to the whoppers that pass without comment every day in Washington. From Bill Bonner at bonnerprivateresearch.substack.com:
Bill Bonner, reckoning today from Youghal, Ireland…
As every sentient biped now knows, Mr. George Santos lied to get himself elected to Congress. The poor man is now the butt of jokes for standup comics all over the country. He provides the Democrats with evidence – if any more were needed – that Republicans can’t be trusted….while distracting the public from their own agenda, which is ruining the country.
But here at Bonner Private Research, we judge not. We just keep our eyes and ears open. We don’t really care about George Santos, but we’re very curious about the system of government that selects a low-life hustler like him as a decider. In the interest of understanding better how our democracy really works, we let him explain himself:
Trust Me, I’m Lying
“Alright. So, I lied. Big whoop.
“I said I graduated from Baruch College. I never actually set foot in the school.
“I said I went to the prestigious Horace Mann prep school. Nope.
“I said my grandparents were holocaust survivors. They were not.
“I said I worked for Goldman Sachs. I never did.
“I said I was Jewish. Then, I clarified. I was ‘Jew-ish,’ but not a Jew.
“I said I was ‘half-Black’, Ukrainian…and lost employees in the Pulse nightclub mass shooting. None of those things are true.
“I said my mother died on 9/11. (She was shocked to hear it! She didn’t die until 15 years later.)
“Somehow, I went from being penniless in 2020….to having millions of dollars to spend on my campaign in 2022. I claimed to own apartment buildings….and made money by selling used yachts. I was the key man in a hedge fund. Of course, there is more to that story….and I’m sure it will come out in due time.
