Romney excoriates Santos, says he’s a ‘sick puppy’ who should have been ‘sitting in the back row’ during Biden address

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UH) stated at the State of the Union address that Rep George Santos (R-NY) has no business being anywhere near congress.

“If he had any shame at all, he wouldn’t be there,” Romney told the media following the state of the union.

Santos has acknowledged that he has exaggerated parts of his personal and professional resume, however Romney said they are straight up lies and not embellishments. Romney said that an example of an embellishment is to say that you got an A rather than an A-. “Lying is saying you graduated from a college you didn’t even attend.”

Santos lied about graduating from college along with being a volleyball star, having a comprehensive Wall Street resume, his ancestry and more. Santos is facing legal scrutiny, at both local and federal levels, for his campaign finances.

Romney told Santos on Tuesday that he shouldn’t be there.

“I didn’t expect that he’d be standing there (in an aisle seat) trying to shake hands with every senator and the president of the United States,” Romney said to reporters after the State of the Union. Given the investigations facing him, including a House Ethics complaint, “he should be sitting in the back row and staying quiet instead of parading in front of the president and people coming into the room.”

The senator described Santos as “a sick puppy” for his lies.

“He shouldn’t be in Congress, and they’re going to go through the process and hopefully get him out,” Romney said. “But he shouldn’t be there and if he had any shame at all, he wouldn’t be there.”
