George Santos, Liar Extraordinaire, Expelled by Congress in Overwhelming Vote, So He Can Join the Rolling Stones on Tour


George Santos, the most famous liar in the world, has been expelled Congress in an overwhelming vote.

By a margin of 311 to 114, Santos’s colleagues kicked him out after months of outrageous prevarication and disrespect for the law, for the country, and his so called constituency.

Santos immediately announced he was joining the Rolling Stones on tour next spring where he will understudy Mick Jagger. First, however, he’ll do some work for Warren Buffett now that Buffett’s pal, Charlie Munger, has died.

Santos was abhorrent, of course, and a disgrace. But didn’t we need him as a punchline and punching bag? He was a welcome diversion, easy to mock, and for that he deserves our thanks. George Santos was the only we could all agree on.
