Kevin McCarthy Makes WTF Comparison Of Joe Biden And George Santos

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) appeared to wish Sunday that serial liar Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) had more power than President Joe Biden. (Watch the video below.)

McCarthy made the odd suggestion in response to a rhetorical question posed by Fox News host Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty & Levin.”

“Who has more power ― Joe Biden or George Santos?” Levin asked.

“Well, right now I think it is the president, Joe Biden, unfortunately,” McCarthy replied with a laugh.

The newly elected Santos has seen much of his party and constituents turn on him amid a flood of lies and misleading statements about his education, religion, business accomplishments and general background. Among other things, he falsely claimed his mother died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, and made a dubious assertion that he was the target of an assassination attempt. In addition, the Justice Department is thought to have initiated a criminal investigation into Santos’ campaign funding.
