Former congressman and current Fox News contributor Sean Duffy said Friday that he doesn’t believe lying Rep.-elect George Santos should resign because Democrats lie just as much — if not much more than — he has.
Indeed, if “the size of the lie matters,” Duffy argued on Fox News’ “Jesse Watters Primetime,” then Democrats are far more guilty than Santos.
“George Santos, yeah, he did. He lied to a congressional district in New York. 750,000 people. Bad. Shouldn’t do it. But these Democrats, these are national Democrats, they were lying to the whole American people. They were trying to impeach a president, undo an election, by their lies,” he said.
“Way more serious than what George Santos has done. And how rich is it, they have no shame to go, ‘George Santos is a liar, he should resign.’ They don’t look in the mirror,” he added.
Indeed, they don’t.
The irony is that the Democrats’ biggest liar is their own president, Joe Biden.
“Biden has been criticized for fabricating stories for decades, from claiming to having been arrested in apartheid-era South Africa to being ‘shot at’ in Iraq to being in a helicopter that was ‘forced down’ by al Qaeda in Afghanistan,” Fox News reported earlier this week.
“Most recently, Biden was slammed after telling the hurricane-devastated island of Puerto Rico that he had been ‘raised in the Puerto Rican community at home, politically,’ in Delaware,” according to Fox News.
The man’s been lying for decades, starting with the lie he told during his failed 1988 presidential campaign bid.
“I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship,” he told a reporter at the time, adding that he’d “ended up in the top half of my class” and “graduated with three degrees from college.”
Back in May, he told a lie so big that even establishment media “journalists” were slightly caught off guard.
Don’t forget – Biden was arrrested during a civil rights demonstration, went to a black college, was nominated to the Naval Academy, met Golda Meir, tried to meet Nelson Mandela and traveled the Hymalyas with Xi Jinping. pic.twitter.com/BlmAF1Ox9h

“I was appointed to the [Naval] Academy in 1965 by a senator who I was running against in 1972,” he said.
But this is reportedly impossible.
“Biden said he applied to [the Naval Academy in] Annapolis with a letter from then-Delaware Sen. J. Caleb Boggs, but the year he cited — 1965 — is the same year he graduated from the University of Delaware. The academy doesn’t offer graduate degrees,” the New York Post reported at the time.
Now notice how Matt Viser of The Washington Post responded to this whopper of a lie:
Biden tells a story I’ve never heard before: In 1965, Sen. Caleb Boggs appointed him to the Naval Academy. But he opted to pursue football at the Univ of Delaware instead. Then Biden — who, had he gone to the Academy, would’ve still been on active duty — defeated Boggs in 1972.

Biden of course isn’t the only Democrat liar. Rep. Ilhan Omar has tried to cover up her alleged marriage to her brother, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has claimed to be part Native American, and Sen. Richard Blumenthal has claimed he served in Vietnam.
Yet despite all these lies built upon lies, Democrats have been acting holier than thou about Santos’ own lies.
Critics find the hypocrisy amusing.
1. George Santos is a repulsive fraud. No question. Kinda like Joe’s buddy Elizabeth Warren, who spent decades lying about her Native American heritage to get big academic jobs. Isn’t she a frequent guest on the Morning Schmoe?

Just finished an article on the lies Joe Biden has told about his past, and I had to make myself end it because it was getting too long. The lies just kept going and going as I searched around.
Democrats can pound sand about George Santos.

I hear that George Santos fraudulently claimed to be Native American in order to get a job at Harvard. DM me for details.

While we’re on the topic of George Santos being a serial liar, can we investigate Ilhan Omar for marrying her brother?

In fairness to Democrats, Santos is, unlike them, currently also under federal investigation over his sketchy finances.
“The man with almost as many lies on his resume as lines on his resume is now under federal investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York. A source familiar with the matter tells me tonight that prosecutors are looking into his finances,” CNN’s Pamela Brown reported Wednesday.
“The congressman-elect, as you know, has faced questions about his wealth and loans totaling more than $700,000 he made to his 2022 campaign. We’ve asked for a comment from a representative for Mr. Santos but so far have not heard back. And again, this is merely the latest of many shoes to drop. We’ve learned as well about a criminal charge he faced in 2011 in Brazil for alleged embezzlement,” she added.
In NY, there’s nothing you can’t do, except fraud: Rep-elect under investigationhttps://t.co/pBUKCk2zds

Concluding his remarks on Fox News, Duffy said, “George Santos lied before he was sworn in and he doesn’t get sworn in until Jan. 3. George Santos, do not resign. Stay in Congress and work for your district.”
