What Do George Santos’ Hand Gestures Mean? Suspicions Are Raised

On January 5, photographer Evelyn Hockstein captured a photo of freshman Congressman George Santos making a specific hand gesture during a session, causing social media to lash out (once again) at the Congressman.

Reuters news editor Jim Bourg posted the image to Twitter on Thursday, amassing over 5 million views in a single day. The photo elicited a strong response from left-leaning Twitter users, as many accused Santos of using a hand gesture commonly associated with “white power.”

This is the latest in the saga of the young Congressman, as he is currently embroiled with battling accusations of falsehoods in his resume during his campaign trail. Twitter users didn't let their foot off the gas for Santos' sake, pouncing on him in the replies to Bourg's post.
