New York Republican Representative George Santos has once again found himself the target of criticism after a failed attempt to commemorate "Star Wars Day."

On Thursday, May 4, Santos tweeted:

"May the fourth be with you"

The phrase is often shared on social media on May 4 to celebrate the popular movie franchise and a dad joke level pun.

However, the Congressman's take on the iconic "may the force be with you" catchphrase was mostly met with mockery.

You can see Santos' post below.

Santos' attempt at joining in on the fun of "Star Wars Day" was widely mocked.

Many accused him of being out of touch and out of his depth.

Santos' actions have once again brought attention to the issue of dishonesty in politics and the need for greater accountability and transparency in the political sphere.

Santos has a history of making false claims about his personal and professional life, with reports verifying large parts of his self-published biography were fabricated.

He was caught lying about his education, employment, criminal record, ethnicity, religion and other matters, both in public and in private. Despite admitting to lying about his education and employment, Santos has continued to make questionable statements and assertions.

In 2010, Santos admitted to committing check fraud in Brazil in 2008 but failed to appear in court in 2011, leaving the case unresolved. The case was revived by Brazilian authorities in late 2022, following Santos' election to Congress.

On March 24, 2023, it was announced Santos would plead guilty in that case.
