McEntee said in a now viral TikTok video that he wants to help "clean up the community". The video posted a week back has over 7 million views and almost half a million likes.

His outrageous video was posted on the account for The Right Stuff, a dating app for U.S. conservatives that McEntee co-founded.

"So I always keep this fake Hollywood money in my car so when a homeless person asks for money, then I give him like a fake $5 bill, so I feel good about myself, they feel good," McEntee said in the video.

"And then, when they go to use it, they get arrested so I'm actually like helping clean up the community. You know, getting them off the street."

After the backlash caption on the video read, “Just a joke. Everyone calm down #fyp”

The netizens can't believe what they heard from a person who has served with the US President at the White House. “Pretty sure that passing off counterfeit bills as real, even to people he views with such disdain as the unhoused, is still illegal, ” asserted an X User.

Using the incident to attack Trump's supporters another said, “This is your maga party and today's Heritage Foundation, now owned by maga. This is how they think.”

“So #GeorgeFloyd was murdered by a cop in broad daylight for this crime while this douchebag insurrectionist MAGAt from @TeamTrump and #Project2025 gets to go about his privileged life like it’s just another day,” commented another user.
