Fallen Long Island rep George Santos has begged onlookers for a ‘second chance’ in a new interview.

Conducted by Piers Morgan, the sit-down also saw Santos, 35, state how he would not blame his childhood for the ‘lies’ that saw him expelled late last year, following a historic vote from his colleagues.

Questioned about the criminal charges he faces for stealing donor funds and reallocating them toward OnlyFans and Botox, Santos said his Brazilian-born mom would have beaten him senseless.

Asked about his formative years spent in a basement apartment in Queens, he simply said it did not play a part.

Set to air on Thursday night, the interview, for the most part, features an apologetic Santos asking the American public for forgiveness.

The interview comes weeks after the openly gay Republican air potential plans to one day return to Congress, after earning the distinction of being the sixth rep in US history to be ousted by his colleagues.

In one of three clips being billed as previews, Santos – who was expelled last month – states, ‘Don’t count me out. You know, I’ve given many people a second chance. And I’m asking everybody to please give me a second chance.’

He went on to insist, ‘And I will, you know, come forward and prove to be worth your second chance.’

The interview  – part of the upcoming episode of Piers Morgan Uncensored – is set to air Thursday night, and features a segment where the award-winning anchor flat-out asks if Santos’ past played a part his not-so-stately misdeeds.

In response, the Jackson Heights native simply said he couldn’t deflect to his upbringing for the source of his ‘endless lies.’ 

‘I don’t have an answer for you,’ he says in response to Morgan’s inquiry into a potential motive. ‘I really don’t,’ he adds, giving the Englishman a long blank stare.  

In response, Morgan – capitalizing on the rare opportunity to question the fraudster further – persisted.

‘Something in your childhood? Nothing? Nothing triggered this?’ he asked, citing previous comments from the lawmakers that indicated his family had been poor at the time, and lived in a rat-infested apartment near Astoria’s Little Brazil.

Despite this, Santos insisted life with mom Fátima Aziza Caruso Horta Devolder, dad Gercino Antônio dos Santos Jr., and sister Tiffany, 35, was not the cause for his misdeeds. 

He told Morgan: ‘No, nothing’, in response to a request for an explanation.

‘You can’t explain it?’ The TV Talker then asked: – spurring Santos to respond: ‘No, can’t explain it, can’t explain it. 

‘Sorry Piers.’

While somewhat mysterious, the remark was far from the most sensational part of the upcoming interview.

In another excerpt, Santos responds to an inquiry into how his mother – who emigrated to the US in 2003 after spending an unspecified amount of time there pre-1990  – would have reacted to his recent headlines.

Keeping things lighthearted, Santos replied how his mom follows a more old-world style of parenting, and thus would have ‘smacked [him] to hell’.

‘Oh, she was, tough lady,’ he went on to explain.

‘She would have physically assaulted me… Because it was unacceptable. Everything, the whole thing was unacceptable. 

In another portion, Santos state his mom, 61-year-old Fatima (seen here) - who emigrated to the US in 2003 after spending an unspecified amount of time there pre-1990 - would have beaten him senseless for his lying and misdeeds, citing her old-school method of parenting

'The fact I had to open my mouth and say anything that wasn¿t true, she would have beaten me to a crisp,' he said of his mom - whose visa application once proved her sons claims that she 'survived the tragic events' of the Sept. 11th attacks were lies

As for her weapon of choice, Santos said: ‘She would have pulled out a wooden stick.’

The assertion over the woman’s prospective response to his lying comes roughly a year after Santos, then only weeks into his ill-fated House stint, told Morgan in a similar sit-down, ‘I’m a terrible liar.’

In a final exchange promoting the anticipated spot, Santos – after asking for forgiveness – hints at a potential political return.   

Morgan asks at a point: ‘What’s your final message for people watching this?’

Santos, in turn, responds: ‘I just want people to look at [the past few months] and say so many people make mistakes. 

‘We all make mistakes if you really take a look deep inside and I am sorry. And I look forward to continuing to be a voice for those who seek leadership in me.

‘Don’t count me out.’

On December 1, more than 100 Republicans joined Democrats in booting out the fabulist liar in a vote totaling 311 to 114, with two members voting ‘present.

Santos responded by storming off the House floor minutes before, eventually warning reporters immediately after that [the House has] set a new dangerous precedent.’

He added at the time, ‘To hell with this place.’

Even in the face of the count, Santos remained defiant – despite being accused of a bevy of lies including fabricating family links to the Holocaust, 9/11 killing his mother, working on Wall Street, recovering from a brain tumor, and being of Ukrainian-Jewish descent.

However, in the event’s aftermath, he said he would leave Congress if it is ‘God’s will.’

His mountains of lies include fabricating family links to the Holocaust, 9/11 killing his mother, working on Wall Street, recovering from a brain tumor, being of Ukrainian-Jewish descent.

He faces a slew of criminal charges, including allegations that he defrauded campaign donors, lied to Congress about his wealth, received unemployment benefits while employed, and used campaign contributions to pay for personal expenses like designer clothing. 

Among the charges are allegations that he made unauthorized charges on credit cards belonging to some of his donors.

Santos pleaded not guilty to a revised indictment in October.

Prosecutors revealed in a court filing Monday that they were negotiating with Santos to resolve his criminal case without a trial potentially.

In an interview on CBS New York that aired the last week of December, Santos said he hadn’t ruled out pleading guilty, saying ‘there’s obviously conversations taking place, especially after what happened in Congress, and we’ll see.’

Santos was elected last year after campaigning as a self-made Wall Street whiz, but was revealed after the election to have been a fabulist who had lied about where he worked, where he went to college and big chunks of his personal background.

Since leaving Congress, Santos launched an account on the website Cameo, where the public can pay him for a personalized video message. In the televised interview, Santos said he made more money in a week on the platform than his annual salary as a congressman.

That comes in contrast to comments offered to talk radio host Frank Morano just a day before, during which he said, ‘I’m not done with public service. I want to go back to Congress.’

Delivered less than two weeks after his ouster, the assertion was more in line with his comments to Morgan.

‘I’m not saying today,’ he told Morano when asked about a prospective return to politics.

He, however, added: ‘I think we all know, but I do have hopes of trying to regain the trust of the American people and going there, because I will continue to expose and root out the rot in our federal government.’

Tune into the interview tonight Piers Morgan Uncensored, available on TalkTV on Freeview 237, Sky 522 and Virgin Media 606 or on Fox Nation in the US.
