This is a very partial list of lies by the president:

Invalid Tweet ID
There are many, many more, and these are the same kind of lies as Santos that seem to my unprofessional eye to reveal some sort of pathology. You can make a similar list for Kamala Harris.

The Santos story started with people realizing he wasn't Jewish. That rang a bell for me:

This story came out before her election which she won handily. Her profile has grown significantly since then and she is a rising political force.

If you are going to expel Santos, and I'd be inclined to agree, you also have to expel a bunch of other politicians who weirdly we never hear about.

It seems that Santos is also a major crook.

Brain Krebs did some digging on him.

At least we got good comedy out of this story. Will any politician excuse ever top "I said I was Jew-ish"?

I have no problem with that.
The big difference here is that his home state R party is calling for it.

Are you saying he's a one hit wonder and expel or keep him around and see what else he can produce?  :)

Did he do anything illegal? If yes, then deal with it in whatever legal way exists, and possibly expel.

If not, let him face his voters.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why not? If these lies disqualify Santos from Congress, surely Biden's lies disqualify him from the presidency. I wonder why there are no calls to impeach him, and throughout the campaign they were barely mentioned, if at all. It's a real mystery.

They did actually disqualify him more than once until Trump became president.

You missed the point again. When your own party calls for you to be expelled it is more than just little white lies or embellishment. You have crossed a major line when your own party calls for it.

Did the R's call for Trump? Was he just little white lies and embellishment?

No, they didn't. So, this goes way beyond Trump behavior.

So Trump wasn't so bad after all...  ;)

All he had was:
just little white lies and embellishment

Or do you really mean once one crosses their own party it's unacceptable...
