Rep. George Santos claims he was mugged in broad daylight a block from Trump Tower in NYC

crooks stole his shoes

Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) claims in a newly surfaced interview that he was mugged in broad daylight a block from Trump Tower in Manhattan — and the crooks even took the shoes off his feet.

Seeking to demonstrate the impact of rising crime, the newly elected Long Island lawmaker told a Brazilian podcast that he was attacked on Fifth Ave. and E. 55th St. on one of the city’s fanciest shopping strips in the summer of 2021.

“They robbed me, took my briefcase, took my shoes and my watch. And that was in broad daylight,” he said, speaking in his native Portuguese. “I was leaving my office, going to the garage, getting my car, and I was mugged.”

The interview, which was done after Santos won election to Congress in November, was unearthed by MSNBC.

We should be so lucky.

1. Santos is a real life Tommy Flanagan

This lying worm is proof of life imitating art. Disgusting how low he will go to enrich himself. He is now officially the Poster Boy for the GQP.

2. Highly unlikely for a couple of reasons.

That area is crowded with tourists, residents, workers and police and he said it.

“They weren’t Black. They were even white,” Santos said, as if he might have expected the supposed criminals to be African Americans.

11. does anyone here think we're living in a series of SNL skits?

there's pathological liar/drag queen George Santos...Kevin McCarthy will never give up Marjorie Taylor Greene...Matt Gaetz supposedly hired an admitted child predator/non-citizen to deal with IRS cases in his congressional office...Jim Jordan sent a scathing letter to the Justice Department demanding investigations info (on him and his fellow traitors) and the DOJ responded with a legalese "fuck you"...Mike Pence sanctimoniously excoriated Biden for discovered docs in his home days before Mike Pence was busted for having docs in his home...

LOL, I'll bet this happened to Santos.
