Rep-elect George Santos (R-NY) isn't having a good first day on the job as he dodged questions from a slew of reporters, walked into a dead end in the basement, and even refused to answer a simple question, "Is George Santos your real name?"

The Daily Beast reports:

Santos arrived at the U.S. Capitol without his husband—and his wedding band—despite many members bringing along their spouses as they're sworn in for the 118th Congress.

Speed walking ahead of the press corps, Santos dodged questions about his plethora of lies—which spanned from where he worked, his religion, and his race, to name just a few—before finding himself backed into a corner in the basement of the Longworth House Office Building. He was awkwardly forced to turn around.

Are we even sure that Santos is married? I'm going to need proof of everything he has claimed. Maybe George was saying that he's married-ish. Who knows.

Santos is still under investigation by the Brazillian police, and the story about this is pretty wild. He'll fit in well with his colleagues.

It's a really bad day for Republicans as Kevin McCarthy appears to want to be defeated over and over again by Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries for House Speaker. McCarthy did get admitted liar George Santos's vote, though.
