Fake Republican Adam Kinzinger Spars on Twitter w/ Jew-ish George Santos

'Cries are better than lies, FRAUD...'

(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) As Democrats continued a blitzkrieg attack on embattled Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., the feisty freshman lawmaker fought back, potentially endearing himself to diffident Republicans who remained wary of him amid allegations that he faked much of his résumé to get elected.

Most notably, Santos took a Twitter dig Wednesday at ex-Illinois congressman Adam Kinzinger, who recently accepted a job as a CNN correspondent after retiring last year in the face of certain defeat ahead of the 2022 primary election.

Santos—who became one of the few openly gay GOP lawmakers when he succeeded in flipping a historically blue New York district—has acknowledged that he misrepresented aspects of his background.

In one such case, he defended himself by denying that he had claimed to be Jewish, but rather that he said he was Jew-ish, the New York Post reported.

He explained that although he was raised Catholic, he had Jewish relatives on his mother’s side.

Kinzinger, the weepy-eyed RINO who served alongside ex-Rep. Liz Cheney as the two non-Democrats on the House’s sham Jan. 6 committee, had previously called on Santos to resign.

He slapped back at Santos with his own barb, telling him “Cries are better than lies, FRAUD.

But given Kinzinger’s own history of lying, the retort seemed a bit insincere.

Not only did Kinzinger misrepresent himself as a Republican, but he also became notorious for spreading disinformation related to both the Jan. 6 hearings and Ukraine’s war with Russia.

Most notoriously, as part of the pro-Ukraine propaganda effort, he tweeted a picture from 2016 and misleadingly implied that it was more recent by failing to provide the proper context.

Kinzinger also was suspected of faking a death threat and suggesting it was from disgruntled Republicans.

He will be right at home on CNN, which was caught openly acknowledging its role as an anti-Trump propaganda outlet under the stewardship of ex-network president Jeff Zucker and cost itself precious credibility by failing to report accurately on what proved to be a long series of hoaxes.

Santos, meanwhile, has continued to push back against his critics and issued a statement Wednesday that he had no intention of resigning.

Newly elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., stood by him for now, rebuffing an MSNBC reporter’s effort to trap the GOP leader with a gotcha question.

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., likewise brushed off a question while assuring concerned media that it was “being handled internally.”

Many have parried back against Democrats’ cries of foul play by noting a litany of leftist lawmakers who also have shamelessly lied about aspects of their past, including President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
