CNN’s Anderson Cooper struggled to contain his shock at an anecdote from a former roommate of scandal-engulfed Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.).
Gregory Morey-Parker alleged Santos stole a Burberry scarf that was gifted to him by his ideal good friend on the anniversary of his grandfather’s loss of life.
As Morey-Parker talked with Cooper about the alleged theft, the network aired footage of Santos talking at Donald Trump’s “Stop The Steal” rally in Washington in January 2021.
“I realize he was actually putting on one thing he took from you at a pre-January 6th rally in Washington? Is that the scarf?” Cooper requested Morey-Parker in a movie posted on the net by Mediaite.
“Yes. If you can believe that this,” he responded.
“Wait a moment! He’s putting on the scarf?” asked an incredulous Cooper.
“A stolen scarf to a steal-the-election rally,” Morey-Parker replied. “You have to love the irony. And the audacity, pretty frankly.”
Morey-Parker produced the exact declare about the scarf for the duration of an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, all through which he also claimed he never knew Santos by the title he is now going by in Congress.
Santos has been located to have fabricated various statements he made about his history and is below investigation in excess of his campaign finances. He has not commented on the scarf-stealing allegation.
