NBC News reports:
Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., said in an interview on Thursday that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz., consoled him after his tense exchange this week with Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, but Sinema’s office says she never spoke to Santos.
Santos told Newsmax Thursday evening that after Romney lashed out at him ahead of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, Sinema told the congressman to “hang in there, buddy” as she was walking by. He added that she “was very polite, very kindhearted,” unlike Romney, who he claims has “always had prejudice towards minorities.”
But that never happened, Sinema’s spokesperson Hannah Hurley, told NBC News, calling Santos’ comment “a lie.” The two lawmakers never spoke, Hurley said, and Sinema was not aware of the exchange between Santos and Romney until the GOP senator filled her in afterward.
