SNL Mocks George Santos Expulsion in Cold Open

0 108


Saturday Night Live dedicated their cold open to the many lies of George Santos — amid the disgraced former congressman’s expulsion from the House of Representatives.

Santos, on Friday, became the sixth member in the history of the U.S. Congress to ever be expelled after months of scrutiny over his numerous falsehoods and an assortment of legal problems. While the real Santos was in no mood to talk with reporters after his ouster, SNL’s  Bowen Yang portrayed Santos holding a post-expulsion press conference where he embellished himself while continuing his self-portrayal as a victim.

“I’m being assaulted,” Yang’s Santos complained to reporters. “This entire country has been bullying me just because I’m a proud, gay thief. But what else is new? America hates to see a Latina queen winning. Since the day I was elected, it’s been a witch hunt, but if I’m guilty of anything it’s for loving too much-slash-fraud.

From there, Santos tried to trick reporters into giving him their personal information while lamenting, “I’m no longer Congressman Santos. I’m just regular old Professor, Major, General, Reverend, Astronaut Santos, protector of the realm, princess of Genovia.”

“To hell with Congress, I don’t need them anyway,” he declared, “because my new movie opened this weekend, it’s called ‘Renaissance: A Film by Beyonce.””

Santos eventually launched into a musical tribute to himself — which turned out to be a lie-filled parody of Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind.”
