Charlamagne Tha God, guest hosting “The Daily Show,” suggested that Republicans’ decision to expel Rep. George Santos may have been influenced by his sexual orientation, stating that the party does not support LGBTQ individuals.
He also expressed the view that Santos should not have been removed from Congress before being convicted of any crimes, emphasizing his trust in a jury of ordinary citizens over Congress members.
“I think it’s very important to acknowledge a large part of why he was kicked out is that he’s gay,” said Charlamagne. (Trending: Olympic Gold Medalist Sentenced For Jan 6)
“Republicans don’t f— with that gay s—,” he added.
“He could never be a full part of that club. Yes, he was a scam artist who stole and lied but Republicans are ride-and-die with all kind of liars and crooks.”
“I’m just saying, look at their track record — if you’re LGBT, they’ll make you GTFO.”
“I don’t think Congress should come before the court,” Charlamagne said.
“You shouldn’t be able to kick someone out for crimes they haven’t actually been convicted of yet. And I’ll tell you why: To get convicted in a court it takes 12 ordinary citizens to judge you.”
“And I trust 12 randos off the street way more than 435 congresspeople.”
