How Rep. George Santos uses MAGA playbook to survive amid lies and scandals

Rep. George Santos has a plan to survive — and it’s straight out of the MAGA playbook.

Mocked by late night comics and mostly shunned by his own party’s leaders, the controversial Long Island Republican has found a political home in the far-right wing of the GOP.

Santos, who admits to lying about much of his background, now says he’s a victim of the liberal media, Deep State prosecutors and so-called Republicans in name only, the same cast of villains that former President Donald Trump and Fox News hosts rail against.

“MAGA world is a safe harbor for Santos, perhaps the only one he has left,” said Lawrence Levy, executive dean of the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University on Long Island. “This is the ultimate play for him. He’s been embraced by them.”
