Of all the chaos surrounding Rep. George Santos (RN.Y.), apparently he’s not happy with his portrayal on late-night television.
Under multiple investigations for lying extensively about his background in order to get elected, the New York Republican on Monday directed his attention On to the comedian who, predictably, has gone to town with the wild scam that just keeps on giving.
Santos tweeted, “I’m now set in late night TV history with all of these impersonations, but they’re all terrible so far.” “Jon Lovitz is considered one of the greatest comedians of all time and it was a shame—not me! These comedians need to up their game.”
Since his election, Santos has been caught in an ever-growing list of lies about his life, including misrepresenting his mother’s death, saying that his grandparents fled the Holocaust, going to college Lied about attending and feigned Jewish heritage. To add to the mess, he’s also been accused of campaign finance violations, scammed a disabled veteran over his dying dog and has a secret past as a drag performer in Brazil named Kitara. (Santos has denied those allegations.)
As such, with fodder galore, shows such as Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert have all brought in comics to play the role of lawman, as did “Saturday Night Live.” An “SNL” alum, Jon Lovitz played the role on “The Tonight Show.”
Santos’ bizarre Twitter grip (and abysmal failure to read the room) earned him an extra roasting:
Santos even went back and forth with former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winner Trixie Mattel, who quoted Santos’ own comments regarding a photo that appeared to show him in drag:
