CBS/New York

Rep. George Santos (R-NY) snapped at reporters after he said that his mother died in the 9/11 attacks.

CBS New York published a video clip of Santos being peppered with questions while he walked through a local airport.

"Con artist!" someone could be heard yelling at the congressman as he answered questions.

"I have spoken with the voters," Santos told reporters. "I've been in the district all week taking constituent calls."

"Look, this isn't how you conduct an interview," he said in response to being hammered with questions about whether his mother died in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks.

Researchers have disputed Santos' claim.
