George Santos was brutally taunted at a wrestling event near his precinct

George Santos was taunted at a Long Island wrestling match in New York on Wednesday night when a performer claimed a rival was “full of more shit” than the House Republican.

The All Elite Wrestling (AEW) event was held at the UBS Arena, which is south of New York’s third congressional district, which Santos flipped in November.

Santos has been under intense pressure to resign since December, when it was revealed the New York congressman fabricated much of his backstory, including his education, professional history and claims of losing staff in the 2016 Pulse nightclub mass shooting in Orlando.

The book of satire took place in a pre-fight rap by The Acclaimed, a wrestling tag team consisting of Anthony Bowens and Max Caster, during one of AEW’s weekly “Dynamite” shows.

In lyrics aimed at its AEW star Chris Jericho, The Acclaimed rapped, “Platinum on the mic I’m nice to raw rhymes damn it feels good to be home on Long Island. You want us in but we can’t, Jericho is full of more s*** than George Santos. You look so strange there. The jibe was greeted with cheers from the crowd.

news week Santos has asked for comment on the clip, which was tweeted by journalist Aaron Rupar.

On March 2, the House Ethics Committee announced that it had set up a bipartisan panel to investigate Santos, who is accused of fabricating campaign finance statements, which he denies.

The panel will also investigate allegations that Santos sexually harassed a volunteer at his congressional office in January, including groping the man without his consent. The House Republican has firmly denied the allegation, which he described as “weird” when confronted with CNN reporter Kit Maher.

On Tuesday, Santos made a brief appearance at a rally in New York to protest the arrest of Donald Trump, who has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of crime. The former president is accused of falsifying business records to cover up the payment of hush money to Stormy Daniels, a former porn actress, ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Trump has denied both financial wrongdoing and an affair with Daniels.

A clip of Santos saying he was leaving the rally and not returning because reporters were “making it unbearable to be here” was posted to Twitter by The Hill reporter Zach Schonfeld.

House Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene also attended the protest and later suggested that counter-protesters should have been arrested if they “violated freedom of speech and committed an assault” by whistling.

Santos discusses the rally on Twitter called: “I’ve stood by Trump from the moment he came down the escalator, I voted for him in the primary and twice for president in the general election. Your worse days.” George Santos was brutally taunted at a wrestling event near his precinct
