George Santos Also Falsely Claimed His Mother Died On 9/11



United States Congressman-elect George Santos (R-New York) has been under fire over the vast amount of lies he has told the public: his fake résumé, his spurious claims about being “Jew-ish,” his nonexistent college education, and his sketchy finances as mere “embellishments.”

But recently, New York Magazine and Huffington Post contributor Yashar Ali found something even more sickening about the Republican.

On Wednesday, Ali noted that Santos had typed up two tweets in 2021(both of which are still active) that contained conflicting statements about his mother’s death.

The first was authored on July 12th:

9/11 claimed my mother’s life… so I’m blocking so I don’t ever have to read this again.

The second was published on December 23rd:

December 23rd this year marks 5 years I lost my best friend and mentor. Mom you will live forever in my heart.

Ali was taken aback by what he found on Santos’ timeline, jotting on his post that “this guy has to be an op. My god.”

According to Santos’ campaign website, however, “George’s mother was in her office in the South Tower on September 11, 2001, when the horrific events of that day unfolded. She survived the tragic events on September 11th, but she passed away a few years later when she lost her battle to cancer.”

Mediaite aptly noted that “although many at Ground Zero in the aftermath of 9/11 subsequently developed health problems such as cancer, 15 years is not “a few years later.'”
