Do we believe Kyrsten Sinema or George Santos? That is hard
Now, here’s a real head-scratcher: As of Friday, Rep. George Santos (RN.Y.) and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) are accusing each other of lying, and I have no idea which clearly distraught members of Congress, I believe.
According to Santos Speaking of told Newsmax on Thursday, after Tuesday’s State of the Union address, “as [Sinema] as she walked past she said something along the lines of ‘hang on buddy’ or something like that,” to Santos. Santos claims he replied, “Thank you, Madam Senator.”
But early Friday, Sinema’s team immediately shut down that shit. “I can confirm that it didn’t happen,” the senator’s communications director said told HuffPost in an email. Sinema’s office seems to have sent it same message to CNN.
The question here, aside from which of these members of Congress to believe, is whether or not it would actually be funnier if the exchange happened. The recorded worst (or at least dressed most annoyingly) Senator doesn’t exactly have high expectations of whom she chooses to deal with – she certainly does spends a lot of time with private equity lobbyists, public eaten with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) last week and previously bizarrely flaunted her friendship with Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah), a man who blew his shot at the presidency in 2012 strap the family dog to the roof of his car on a road trip. Now that I think about it, that might be their problem with Santos bragging about their favor – Romney and Sinema are, for whatever reason, bestiesand the Utah Senator has made his feelings towards Santos very clear, explain this week that “if [Santos] I would have been ashamed at all if he wasn’t there.”

Santos, on the other hand, has a very storied story in which he made up perhaps the most random lies I’ve ever heard – in which he appeared Hannah Montanathat his mother died in the 9/11 attacks, that he produced Spider-Man: Turn off the Darknessthat he’s Jewish, etc. – and that’s clearly a plus for Sinema as far as this nail-biter of a he-said-she-said is concerned. But Sinema is also something of a weirdo herself, and in her obsession with bipartisan contrarianism, I could very easily see her giving Santos a quick word of approval in passing, only to take it back after making it public.
There is a short circuit clip of Santos appearing to be exchanging words with Sinema shortly after the SOTU address — particularly while Romney is very loudly rebuking Santos for trying to greet and shake hands with President Biden after his speech.
Look, I don’t know who to believe and… I don’t care? I think they’re both pretty pathetic and I’ll let them fight it out between themselves.
