COMEDY:McCarthy will NOT call for Santos to resign: ‘The voters elected him to serve’

This really defies belief. A Traitor to America...both of them.


McCarthy doesn’t call for Santos to resign: ‘The voters elected him to serve’
[thehill.com]

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Wednesday declined to call for Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) to resign over fabrications about his résumé and questions about his finances even as New York Republicans raised the pressure on the embattled first-term lawmaker.

“I try to stick by the Constitution. The voters elected him to serve. If there is a concern, and he has to go through the Ethics, let him move through that,” McCarthy told reporters on Wednesday.

“He will continue to serve,” McCarthy said of Santos.

McCarthy’s comments mark his most substantive statements to date about Santos, weeks after the congressman admitted to misrepresenting his background.

Asked about Santos admitting to fabricating parts of his resume, McCarthy said, “So did a lot of people here in the Senate and others.”

That deflection echoed Santos pointing to President Biden and other Democrats when asked about the fabrications. 

“It’s the voters who made that decision. He has to answer to the voters and the voters to make another decision in two years,” McCarthy said.

“He is going to have to build the trust here and he’s going to have the opportunity to try to do that,” McCarthy said.

“What are the charges against him?” McCarthy said. “In America today, you’re innocent till proven guilty. So just because somebody doesn’t like the press you have, it’s not me that can oversay what the voters say the voters say.”

“If there is something that rises to the occasion that he did something wrong, then we’ll deal with that at that time,” McCarthy said.

NEW YORK — Rep. George Santos refused to resign Wednesday despite a parade of Republican Nassau County officials demanding he step down.

(why should he after the solid McCarthy endorsement?)

Kevin is worried voters may replace Santos with a Democrat and he’ll lose a House Republican vote.

That and McCarthy probably promised Santos he wouldn't call for his removal in exchange for Santos supporting him for SOTH.

Timely:

George Santos’s Secret Résumé: A Wall Street Star With a 3.9 G.P.A.

Yeah, no.

Quote

He claimed [in 2020, to the GOP] to have graduated in the top 1 percent of his class at Baruch College, earned an M.B.A. at New York University and more than doubled revenue as a project manager at Goldman Sachs…

Yeah, no.

Quote

Mr. Santos claimed to have graduated summa @#$%& laude with a 3.89 G.P.A. at Baruch College in 2010. He said he went on to earn the M.B.A. in 2013, after scoring an impressive 710 on the GMAT.

Yup. Nope. None of that.

Quote

Evidently not satisfied that the written record was enough, Mr. Santos told Nassau County Republican officials that he was also part of a championship-winning volleyball team at Baruch, according to Mr. Cairo.

“He said he was a star and that they won the championship”.

“He answered the questions — obviously not truthfully — but at that time we trusted him,” Joseph G. Cairo Jr., the [GOP] committee chairman, told reporters at a news conference, vowing to put in place a more rigorous vetting process. He added: “We were duped here.”

As usual, it’s not their fault - they’re the victims here.

Santos won over Zimmerman by a small enough margin that this is a strong likelihood.

...But a special election takes about 6 months to arrange and the seat would sit vacant for all that time. So, McCarthy is undoubtedly more worried that he'd be short a supportive vote in early legislative activities.

Let's review. The party of "Government should be run like a business" thinks that lying on your resume is A-OK as long as no one notices before the hire.

I'm going to use this principle for my next job interview, and see how it pans out. If anyone calls here for Vandelay Industries, please hand the phone to me immediately.

New Yawkers are the ones who should be embarrassed, not Santos. He just told them what he thought they wanted to hear. The rest is on them for believing whatever they were fed by the media (and they simply helped the clown win the election by completely missing his BS in the first place).

We'll see if any lessons are learnt here. Probably not.

Apparently, a small local newspaper in Long Island published some of this, but no one read it.

Perhaps, but the 3rd is a literal stone's throw from your own front door…You’re practically next door neighbors, yes? !!

There is rather a hard line between the two places.

And really, how bad could he be?




Just remember. You voted for him.







I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.
