A gay MAGA Republican, Santos was readymade to push the "groomer" lie on Tucker Carlson's show, and promote a "don't say gay" bill in Congress. Now he's blown up in the GOP's face.
you know the GOP was salivating all over this guy's potential. Hoping this is the start of a year of exposing the GOP for the lying hateful theocratic grifters that they are.
UGH....Grennell just makes me want to vomit. I hope Brazil charges Santos in absentia and the US gladly extradites him.
The GOP laid the groundwork for Trump. Santos is the fallout when no low is too low. That it's blowing right up in their faces is the icing on the cake. I hope this trend continues right until 2024. They are not there to govern, they're there for performative bs. And there is nothing more pathetic than supporting a political party or institution that not only loathes you, but is actively working against your best interests. I'm also hoping Santos takes an involuntary trip to Brazil.
The Santos fabulist show is an ongoing sideshow presently on hold, while the surreal voting for the Majority Speaker of the House becomes the current "main event". I had a daydream that had 2 aspects to it, one.... that the Repugnants humiliating public showing climaxes in their overnight decision to abandon McCarthy, Jordan & Scalise et al, & select someone from outside the House (& that IS a legal option) & that "freedom "caucus forces the selection of their own "Messiah"....Donald J Trump as the Majority Speaker!! The second daydream was that the GOP can't make the required majority numbers and the Democrat's Hon.Hakeem Jeffries becomes the Majority Speaker of the House.....with the farcical, lack of GOP strategy and the ignorance of the radical members....anything is possible...let my daydream become my reality !!!
Like the GOP in general, no bottom is too low for this guy. Your further revelations iced the cake regarding the usefulness he would have been if the sociopathy weren't exposed. I arrived home to the 3rd McCarthy failure to secure leadership votes, the inmates have taken over the asylum.
How deliciously tragic for Santos. He exposed the GOP as hucksters and propagandists who thought his voice would give credence to their war on LGBTQIA+ Americans. Radio’s Stephanie Miller describes the GOP as a “big bag of rats, fighting, biting, and chewing each other up”. An apt description for a group of people more invested in harming than helping. Santos would have been one more bullet in the chamber. Instead, the gay darling of the MAGA tribe of psychotics has turned into a blank making noise but lacking any true firepower.
Mike, BLAST !! POW !! BLAM !! Recalling old Batman show fights. Your writing skills and wording are off the charts here today. Loving it. The holiday break recharged you for sure, you’ve come out with both fists and devastating left hooks, KO’s. I’m smirk-smiling all the way through reading this as you decimate and totally annihilate this fraud on steroids Santos. “Show us your birth certificate Santos!!!” We cannot believe a damn thing he says. Mike penned: “But after the scandal broke the joyous squealing fell more silent than a herd of feral pigs that suddenly keeled over”, “Richard Grenell, the big fish in the fetid little pond, was dizzy with delight after Santos’s win”, “But now a cat’s got Grenell’s acid tongue. Usually spewing venom against those who expose MAGA mania, Grenell.....”, Mike, that’s writing gold and we “get” “feel” your great vexations over this psychotic lying creep actually taking an OATH today to get in high office. What that says about the GQP speaks almost as loudly as their continued support, or at least tolerance, of The Donald. DJT is all quid pro quo and the rest of GQP are as well. Birds of a feather.... McCarthy quid pro quo accepts Santos’ oath and seating today for that one precious vote to be Speaker. Summation: GQP going rapidly backwards on LGBT rights is ALL about the new 6-3 radically right winger, fraudulent, justices lying during their hearings in order to get confirmed, “It’s settled law, there is precedence, we accept that”. GQP is relying on the six corrupt illegitimate SCOTUS to support them when cases get to the nine. Over play their hands at the risk of losing more elections.
Such a great point, Michael! Fox News/Republican Party love their LGBT people like Santos and Jenner, who have politics that are so insanely right, they call their fellow LGBT citizens fighting for safe schools for LGBT youth, "groomers," and support dehumanizing "Parental Rights in Education" (Don't Say Gay) bills. Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Ron DeSantis were salivating over the prospect of having a gay man telling them and their audiences that their hatred disguised as journalism/policy was entirely called for. We dodged the Santos bullet, because these GOP morons forgot that a gay man who helps spread hatred against other gay men, has to be consumed with toxic blind ambition or self-hatred, or, given the unholy nature of Santos's Holocaust, Pulse, 9/11 trifecta, be a sociopathic liar!
As someone who has struggled with weight most of my life, I take schadenfreude delight in seeing his weight fluctuate up. Among many other things, Santos is a clear poster child for stress eating.
Amazing piece. What more to say. Santos’s actions have accomplished so much. They’ve shown that the GQP will in the face of staggering lies that are stratospheric remain silent. Silence = Death. One can only hope so. If any one needs any more convincing that the GQP is a complete train wreck, dumpster fire and giant hot mess combined with zero principles, zero substantive policy positions and only are interested in the dissemination of hate, bigotry and lies than consider seeking a neurological evaluation pronto.
