The establishment has been focusing enormous coverage on several rather embarrassing prevarications on the part of recently-elected Republican Congressman George Santos and upon demands for his immediate resignation.
The problem here is the double-standard at play.
They never took much interest in Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)’s false claims of service in Vietnam or in Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)’s lucrative Harvard Law School professorship hailed as that school’s landmark acquisition of its “first woman of color.”
They did not find disqualifying Hillary Clinton’s lies about landing in Bosnia “under sniper fire.”
And, of course, they conscientiously overlook the astonishing, Olympian championship records in Mendacity of Joe Biden.
Marc A. Thiessen (astonishingly in the Washington Post) provides a long (though far from complete) catalog of Biden prevarications enormously exceeding those of George Santos.
And if Bidenocchio actually were forced to step down, why! you’d just get the inveterate liar Kamal Harris.
