Scandal hit Rep. George Santos seems to already be reinventing his résumé for when he inevitably departs Congress. The liar and fabulist took time out of the weekend to post his critique of what women wore to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Saturday evening.
It began with a swipe at the lack of haute couture on display.
Then he posted a thread of his favorite looks.
He then posted a list of looks that he felt didn’t quite hit the mark.
It’s worth noting that NPR Tamara Keith, who made it on to Santos’ ‘worst dressed’ list, wore an outfit in homage to a classic actress and movie.
Rather than offer fashion advice, you’d think Santos might instead concentrate on highlighting the work he’s doing for his constituents.
Online, many were unimpressed, particularly by his critique of some of the outfits.
You should have sent them this for inspiration of the best fashion! pic.twitter.com/VTlzHr7yRD— Karissa Marie ⭕️ (@karmarvar) May 1, 2023
You’re a disgrace to our district- we deserve better than the likes of you#NY03 would be better off with a vacant seat instead of your empty suit#RESIGN to give yourself adequate time to prepare for prison life— 🌻 🇺🇸Mimi Melange 🇺🇸🌻 (@MimiMelange) May 1, 2023
George, as always, laser-focused on his job.— Wet Nose (@misterfin2u) May 1, 2023

George, it's George. You're the poorly fitting suit & sweater guy, time to stop. pic.twitter.com/iEeAHWQB2R— Thenoblephilistine (@noblephilistine) May 1, 2023
Santos, 34, responded to the criticism by reminding everyone that, hey, he’s a millennial. And he’s allowed to tweet whatever he likes on his time off.
“So the twitter mob is outraged because I’m a millennial congressman with a sense of humor & a decent understanding of pop culture. I rather be relatable than think that face book is a book of faces. I work for my constituents and I take off weekend just like you.”
Santos swiftly blocked replies to this tweet.
All tied up
The freshman congressman also made fashion waves on Twitter for another reason this weekend. He apparently gave a tie away.
Gavin Mario Wax, a marketeer and President of the New York Young Republican Club, tweeted that he ran into Santos and complimented him on his tie. The Rep. promptly gifted it to him.
Online, many suggested the same thing: Perhaps it wasn’t really Santos’ tie in the first place.
Hopefully it doesn’t have an original owner looking for it. pic.twitter.com/lcPYXDbhAk— PatriotTakes 🇺🇸 (@patriottakes) April 30, 2023
Gee! You mean he has no legislative ideas? How republican of him.
He must know how fukking creepy he is. Let’s see how his life turns out. He could be the next Pillow Guy. He looks like he’s stuffed with them. Very bloated. Water retaining…..pig.
When Santos was first revealed to be a “fabulist” liar I thought, he MUST also be lying about being gay! No gay guy would dress as badly as he does! Alas, his gayness seems to be the only thing he wasn’t lying about.
But since he has so much time to tweet (being a millennial and all), he MUST be one of the right-wing commenters here on Queerty?
Hello still. You’re def onto something. For a moment I thought correctio was an anagram for georginia santolina.
it’s about time its about space its about time i slapped your face.
Just waiting for the next election…..Buh-bye.
Kitara Ravache Santos was just jealous she wasn’t invited or offered a fabulous frock to wear to the Met Gala. It ain’t happening, Miss Thang, so get over it! Porra!
New on Santos’ résumé, “Advisor to Mr. Blackwell.”
No girrrlllll .. You ain’t nothing but a con artist and a nobody !!
