Farce is strong with Rep. George Santos’ “Star Wars Day” tweet
Rep. George Santos (RN.Y.) jumped on the so-called “Star Wars Day” bandwagon on Thursday, May 4, when he tweeted, “May the Fourth be with you.”
The series fabulist’s approach to the franchise’s “May the force be with you” slogan — which many, many people share online every year — drew immediate scorn from commentators who taunted the lying lawmaker for writing, directing and starring in the success row thanked .
“May the truth be with you,” replied one Twitter user.
Adding another: “The cheating is strong on this one.”
Santos was widely condemned following his 2022 election victory after it was revealed that he had made up many parts of his background.
Last month he announced that he would run for re-election in 2024, despite calls to resign from his own local party leadership.
