“Is there documentation of this?” asked Raju.
“Oh that’s what I spent the last 10 months doing, putting together, but unfortunately, Ukraine is in the middle of a frickin’ war and my grandfather comes from Ukraine,” said Santos, adding that proving the claim he once splattered on his website is the “biggest lift” he’s had to do in his entire life.
“But that’s something ― I’m gonna die, I’m gonna prove before I die,” he added.
When asked if he has documented proof his grandparents fled the Holocaust, Santos replied, “I am working on finishing getting the last pieces of it, specifically the piece in Brazil where they go to Brazil and then have documents forged so that they can blend in and all of that.”
Critics on social media weren’t buying Santos’ response and declared him to be a “Hall of Fame liar” on X (formerly Twitter).
