“Of course I’m gay, Colin. I invented being gay,” Bowan Yang as George Santos said. “I was the one at Stonewall who said, ‘Here’s an idea you guys should kiss.’”

Are we going to miss George Santos when he's gone? Nope. But we will miss Bowen Yang's impression of the disgraced congressman.

Case in point.

In this weekend’s episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, cast member Yang played scandal-plagued congressman from New York, adding a satirical twist to the first-year lawmaker’s ongoing scandals. The sketch, part of the “Weekend Update” segment, was a timely commentary on the controversies surrounding Santos, who has been embroiled in a series of fraud and campaign finance scandals — including an ethics report that claims Santos used campaign funds for expensive clothing, botox, and OnlyFans.

Yang, donning the role of Santos, was introduced by Colin Jost, who quipped, “NASA recently discovered a tiny moon orbiting the asteroid during a flyby of a spacecraft 300 million miles away. Here to comment is the scientist who made the discovery. Oh no, it’s George Santos.”

Yang’s portrayal highlighted the allegations against Santos, including the misuse of campaign funds on extravagances such as OnlyFans subscriptions, gambling, and shopping at luxury designer Hermes.

Jost probed, “It said that you spent campaign funds on OnlyFans,” to which Yang, as Santos, responded, “You did!”

Yang’s performance reflected the gravity of Santos’s situation, with the congressman recently announcing that he will not seek reelection in 2024 following a blistering report by the House Ethics Committee.

In a moment of comical exaggeration, Yang, as Santos, claimed to have invented the concept of being gay after Jost questioned whether he was actually gay.

“Of course I’m gay, Colin. I invented being gay,” Santos said. “I was the one at Stonewall who said, ‘Here’s an idea you guys should kiss.’”

The skit culminated with referencing the movie Pitch Perfect, as Yang, imitating Santos, sang, “You are going to miss me by my sass. You’re going to miss me by my ass. Oh, you are going to miss me when I’m gone. I invented this cups thing.” Anna Kendrick would probably be proud.

Saturday Night Live’s sketch comes at a pivotal time for Santos, as he faces a third vote on his expulsion from Congress following the House Ethics Committee’s report.

Santos, the first out gay Republican elected to Congress, faces 23 federal felony charges, including wire fraud and identity theft, to which he has pleaded not guilty.
