Tulsi Gabbard was supposed to be a Democrat.
But she’s utterly failed and has become a bitter enemy of those in The Swamp.
And she just made Tucker Carlson proud with one razor sharp interview.
Former Representative Tulsi Gabbard was forced to leave the Democrats’ Party after her adherence to intellectual honesty collided with the political agenda in Washington, D.C.
Now Gabbard works for Fox News where she can hold crooked politicians accountable—a fact that one sketchy GOP politician lived to regret after she filled in for Tucker Carlson.
New York managed to elect another politician who is apparently allergic to telling the truth. But surprisingly this Congressman elect has an “R” after their name for once.
And the absurdities of George Santos continue to deepen the more he talks.
Santos won a New York Congressional seat in the Midterm elections, but it quickly became clear he’s lied about everything from his resume, to his religion, and even his sexuality.
The situation is especially dicey for Republicans who barely regained control of the House.
POLITICO reported on the new Representative’s apparent chronic lying habit reporting that “Santos in the lead-up to the midterm elections had also fabricated elements of his family’s history, including that his mother was Jewish and that his maternal grandparents escaped the Holocaust during World War II. After referring to himself publicly as ‘half Jewish’ and a ‘Latino Jew’ during his campaign . . .”
Santos also lied about working for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, how and when his mother died, and has even waffled on whether or not he’s gay or straight.
Obviously, Santos has been in damage control mode ever since his myriad lies surfaced, but there was no spinning his story when he appeared on Fox News.
Tulsi Gabbard, who guest-hosted for Tucker Carlson, refused to let Santos weasel out of his blatant lies.
“The results that people are looking for are called into question when you tell blatant lies. Not embellishments,” Gabbard informed him. “And this is, I think, one of the biggest concerns, congressman-elect, is that you don’t really seem to be taking this seriously . . . You’ve apologized, you said you’ve made mistakes, but you’ve outright lied. A lie is not an embellishment on a résumé.”
Santos responded by blowing smoke about his work in the financial industry to pretend he didn’t lie about working for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup—even though he obviously did.
Santos then makes yet another outrageous claim, “We can have this discussion that’s going to go way above the American people’s head . . . I can sit down and if you want to have that discussion, I’d be glad to, Tulsi, to explain that to you and make sure that we settle the score.”
“This is not about settling scores,” Gabbard fired back. “And I think you just kind of highlighted, I think, my concern and the concern that people at home have. You’re saying that this discussion will go way above the heads of the American people, basically insulting their intelligence. So not only are you now backtracking on these lies that you’ve told, but you’re saying that you can’t explain it in a way that your constituents would actually be able to understand.”
Clearly, Santos’ election illustrates why it’s critical to vet candidates.
With an incredibly slim majority, House Republicans have no margin for error and Santos has already proven himself untrustworthy.
