Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) didn't mince words on Tuesday night, telling reporters he thinks Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.) is "a sick puppy" who had no business in an aisle seat during President Biden's State of the Union address.

Before the address started, Romney was spotted having a tense exchange with Santos, who has been surrounded by scandal ever since being elected in November. In the last few months, it's been revealed that Santos lied about his work, family, and educational history, and he's been accused of, among other things, campaign finance violations and stealing money from a GoFundMe set up to help a disabled veteran's dying dog get surgery.
