Carlson Mocks Media For Reporting On Santos’ Lies

Media Matters has the transcript:

We haven’t watched a ton of cable news recently, but we assumed with mass layoffs across the US economy, an egg shortage, crumbling cities, the prospect of a third world war looming on the horizon, we assumed we knew what the other channels would be covering.

What we didn’t know is that all of those threats go by a single name. And that name is George Santos. George Santos is like 9/11 in human form.

Nothing will ever be the same now that George Santos is here. You will never forget the moment when you first saw George Santos. Where were you when George Santos was elected? It’s a story you’ll tell your grandchildren.

It’s not just that George Santos claimed he once played volleyball in college. It’s worse than that. Indescribably worse. George Santos told other people out loud – and CNN can exclusively confirm this – that he had a volleyball scholarship, perhaps the most coveted credential in collegiate sports. But he didn’t it was all a facade.

It was a tissue of lies constructed to deceive the American people. There was no volleyball scholarship. There was not a single dollar of volleyball scholarship. George Santos made it all up out of whole cloth, out of thin air. George Santos is an ersatz volleyball player.

A fraud, a ghoul. People voted for this man believing he had played collegiate volleyball on a scholarship and he hadn’t.

And yet tonight ladies and gentlemen, this thief of volleyball glory strides the halls of the United States Congress unimpeded by law enforcement. It’s like another insurrection.

It’s like another insurrection And by the way, we are hearing tonight – we can’t confirm but we’re continuing our investigation into George Santos – there are reports tonight that he did not actually work at Citibank. He did not work at Citibank.

No volleyball scholarship. Never worked at Citibank. What percentage of the people who voted for George Santos under false pretenses would have done so had they known he never played volleyball and never worked at Citibank? We can only guess. Obviously, a very small percentage.
