Truth-challenged Rep. George Santos (R-NY) got all butthurt over Sen. John Neely Kennedy (R-LA) called the serial liar “nutty as a fruitcake.”
“He’s nutty as a fruitcake,” Sen. John Kennedy, the Republican from Louisiana, says of Rep. George Santos: “That’s why I called him a bunny boiler. I don’t know if you’ve seen ‘Fatal Attraction’ but there are people like that out there,” per @alizaslav @jessicadean

From Vice News:
On Monday, Sen. John Neely Kennedy of Louisiana told CNN reporters that the 34-year-old congressman—who has also been known as Anthony Devolder, Anthony Zabrovsky, and by a bunch of other aliases—was “nutty as a fruitcake” and compared him to Glenn Close’s doomed character in the 1987 film.
“That’s why I called him a bunny boiler,” Kennedy said. “I don’t know if you’ve seen Fatal Attraction but there are people like that out there.”

So far, the list of allegations against Santos includes: stealing money from a dying dog’s GoFundMe; lying about where he went to college and the companies he’s worked for; and lying about his mother’s death during 9/11, his grandparents’ story of Holocaust survival, and his “Jew-ish” ancestry.
I am saddened that a distinguished senator from the GOP, whom I’ve respected would use such derogatory language against me. Language like that is hurtful and divisive, and has no place in Congress. https://t.co/O7gA2zmZRo

You lied about your mom dying on 9/11 for clout but want to claim hurt fee-fees because someone said something not nice about you. Just resign and piss off already.

Rude to fruitcake

I highly doubt that Santos would boil a bunny, but I’d fully expect him to steal its fur.

Pathological liars have no place in congress but here you are.
