George Santos hasn’t made too many waves within the final couple months, not like he did late final 12 months and early 2023, when a day wouldn’t go by with out some new, wackadoodle tall story he informed being made public. (Final we heard from him he was getting mocked by Jordan Klepper to his face.) However don’t fear, he’s nonetheless acquired it.
As per The Daily Beast, the Jewish information outlet The Ahead has a report on the Yiddish-language publication Second Journal, through which two reporters dropped in on New York consultant’s workplace and scored a sit-down. They did so covertly, not telling Santos that they had been reporters, assuming (in all probability rightly) that he wouldn’t speak to them if he knew.
Throughout their chat, one topic inevitably got here up: Santos’ bizarre claim that he was Jewish, which he later downgraded to “Jew-ish.” Santos nonetheless claims no less than partial Jewish ancestry, and he has proof, type of: He took 4 separate DNA assessments to show he wasn’t solely mendacity. He didn’t have proof, claiming he was “simply ready for his or her returns.”
Regardless of that, Santos did disclose to the reporters the precise share of Jewish ancestry in his blood. He simply requested them to not make it public.
Among the many many, many, many half-truths, fabrications, and outright lies Santos was caught telling throughout his congressional marketing campaign — all of them solely found after he’d been elected — among the many strangest was that he was telling donors that he was a “Latino Jew” and “halachically Jewish.” He additionally claimed that his maternal grandparents had fled anti-Jewish persecution first in Ukraine after which in Belgium. The Ahead was the journal that debunked that one, utilizing family tree websites to indicate that each grandparents had been born in Brazil.
So we’ll have to attend and see if Santos can scientifically show he’s a member of the tribe, if he ever truly makes public the outcomes. And but this line nonetheless has nothing on Santos falsely claiming his mother died on 9/11.
