Angry Mitt Romney Confronts George Santos Before State of the Union

Before the State of the Union address, Rep. George Santos of New York and Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah had a confrontational conversation.

As he entered the House chamber with other senators, Romney informed Santos that he was in the wrong place. This took place on Tuesday night, February 7, 2023.

“I didn’t expect him to be standing there trying to shake hands with every senator and the president of the United States,” Romney told reporters after the speech. “Given the fact that he’s under ethics investigation, he should be sitting in the back row and staying quiet instead of parading in front of the president and the people coming into the room.” 

“He shouldn’t be in Congress,” Romney added. “And they’re going to go through the process and hopefully get him out. But he shouldn’t be there and if he had any shame at all, he wouldn’t be there.” 

Romney said he confronted Santos because “he was standing right there on the aisle shaking hands with everybody.” 

Romney said he did not hear what Santos said back to him. 

A source familiar with the exchange told CBS News that Romney told Santos, “You ought to be embarrassed.” Santos called Romney an “a**hole” in return, the source said. 

“He says … he embellished his record,” Romney said. “Look embellishing is saying you got an A when you got an A minus. Lying is saying you graduated from college you didn’t even attend.” 

After the speech, Santos tweeted to Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for president, “just a reminder that you will NEVER be PRESIDENT!” 

Santos is facing a list of controversies fueled by revelations that he fabricated parts of his life. 

New York State and federal prosecutors have announced investigations related to him, and he is the target of complaints to the Federal Election Commission over campaign spending and the House Ethics Committee.

The FBI is looking into his alleged role in raising funds for a veteran’s dying dog, according to a representative for the veteran, while Santos denies the allegations. He’s also been accused of sexual harassment by someone who briefly worked for him.

Santos denies those allegations as well.

The problem with you narrow minded, racist republicans is anyone that anyone that throws monkey wrench in delusional ideals, you call them a snake in the grass. Take a page out of Romney’s and McCain’s book and try to be a human being for once in your life.

Because they were not sticking to the assignment of never calling out their fellow Republicans, you hate them. Racism is rotting you guys from the inside out. Like I said, try being a human just once in your lifetime.

    3. Yep, RINO Mitt Romney’s civilian job was destroying the jobs of millions of other Americans… just like his Dad, George Romney, did when he robbed and imploded American Motors and destroyed all those workers jobs and ended the production of those fine cars and trucks!

  1. Rooney is a jealous rich man and want to control everybody, thanks, he didn’t make it. He is a loser and Paul Ryan calling President Trump a loser at least he became our great President.
