Patch New York reports:
Years ago, embattled Long Island Rep. George Santos commented on a Facebook post with what appear to be intended jokes about Hitler, a phrase that appears to salute Hitler and observations about “the Jews and black[s],” exclusive screenshots obtained by Patch show.
In March 2011, Santos commented on a photo shared by a Facebook friend which shows someone making what appears to be a military salute with the caption “something like Hitler.” In his comment, Santos writes [sic]: “hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh hiiiiiiiiiiiitlerrrrrrrrrrr (hight hitler) lolololololololololololol sombody kill her!! the jews and black mostly lolllolol!!! Dum”
Patch obtained an image of the comment from a former friend of the congressman who was Facebook friends with the person who posted the photo that Santos commented under. That person declined to be named because they feared professional retribution.
Read the full article. As always, there’s much more. (No paywall.) Santos’ lawyer is claiming that the post is fake.
“Morey-Parker, a former roommate and friend of Santos, told Patch that Santos would frequently make what he said were offensive jokes, usually around the subject of paying the bill at restaurants, ‘but he brushed it off saying he was Jewish.’” https://t.co/dsX614gldk
