Rep. George Santos (R-NY) got in a heated exchange with an activist over the Israel-Hamas war on Friday and was captured by news cameras screaming a profanity-laced tirade as he walked through the hallways of the Capitol building.
The incident took place as pro-Palestinian activists were confronting people about Israel’s retaliation against Hamas’s terror attack from over the weekend.
The activists then turned to Santos, asking, “What are you doing to stop the ongoing genocide of Palestinians?”
“Do not record the baby. Do not record this baby,” Santos said, who was holding a baby outside his office.
“Officer, officer, this is the gentleman that was accosting me when I had a two-month old baby in my hands,” Santos later yelled.
“You came in my personal space,” Santos said, pointing his finger at the activist.
