Rep. George Santos is really (we expect) flattered he reminds folks of Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character from “Catch Me If You Can” — however he is hung up on the Leo factor, and never the compulsive and convicted liar half!!!
File this hilarious clip below “Ya Missed the Point” — however we received the embattled Congressman from New York Wednesday morning on Capitol Hill … the place our photog requested if he is seen the Leo and Tom Hanks film about notorious con man, Frank Abganale.
Santos claims he hasn’t seen the Steven Spielberg-directed movie that had Leo portraying Frank conning his approach via life — pretending to be an airline pilot, physician, instructor and prosecutor.
Perhaps not shockingly, Santos tells us he is “flattered” to be in comparison with Leo … however completely ignores the actual purpose persons are making the parallel. Y’know, the lies on lies on lies half!!!
The Congressman did latch on to 1 different factor in addition to Leo’s appears to be like, saying he needs he had the actor’s checking account. Of course, there is a good likelihood he is already advised somebody that he does!
In the film, Leo’s character is caught ultimately … and Santos has already been caught in quite a lot of lies. Besides his fib-packed resume, he not too long ago admitted he DID have a drag alter ego in his youth in Brazil … after initially denying it.
As for a film about his lie-filled path to Congress — would not sound like he is right down to promote the rights. Someone ought to inform Georgie it would not work that approach — if nothing else, he is a strolling Lifetime flick ready to occur!!!
