Democrat Candidate El-Sayed Attacks Trump-Backed Vet John James, Made To Regret It

Democratic candidate Abdul El-Sayed proudly boasted he would be the first Muslim Governor of Michigan. He lost the primary even though Bernie Sanders, Muslim activist Linda Sansour, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed him. Now, he’s bitter and attacking Iraqi Veteran and West Point graduate John James, who is backed by President Donald Trump in the Michigan senatorial race. James just made El-Sayed totally regret attacking him. You’ll love this.

John James is an up and coming rock star in the Michigan Republican Party, and it sure seems like the failed gubernatorial candidate for Michigan, Abdul El-Sayed, is feeling a bit jealous. In fact, out of nowhere, El-Sayed attacked John James on social media.

Twitchy reports, “We’ve been following James’ campaign for the last several months as he definitely seems like someone who not only embraces conservative principles but who is also willing to FIGHT for them.”

They add, “Gotta tell ya’, we thought he was a badass before, but now we like him even more after reading his response to this disgusting tweet from Democrat, Abdul El-Sayed. You might remember Abdul, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was trying to help him win his primary for governor. He lost. Seems he’s still bitter.”

Well, like we said, out of nowhere El-Sayed tweeted, “Thrilled @DonaldJTrumpJr coming to stump for @JohnJamesMI. Nothing describes @MIGOP better than a man who has done nothing of value but mooch off his daddy–who mooched off *his* daddy. No action, just words. Oh, & @KidRock, a Confederate flag wrapped has been. G’luck John!”

Wow, this guy has some issues. John James was not and is not running against El-Sayed for anything. Then, for El-Sayed to attack Kid Rock as “wrapping himself in the Confederate flag,” well, we take that as racist. We are so sick and tired of this ridiculous Confederate flag bashing, and we all know El-Sayed was trying to imply Kid Rock is a white supremacist.

John James really had enough. He went on the offensive, using El-Sayed’s disturbing tweet to his advantage and making him totally regret starting this fight. James tweeted, “I’m a West Point grad & Iraq vet w/ 2 masters. My dad: Vietnam vet & entrepreneur. His dad: mason. His dad: sharecropper. His dad: slave. Mooching? My family never asked for free stuff, just a fair shot. We can’t allow the American Dream to be crushed by you, @Stabenow & Socialism.”

“This is the part where we say BOOOOOM. Now, we get it, Abdul was going after Trump Jr., but James used this as a perfect opportunity to shut him down and remind us all what the American dream means to people when they WORK FOR IT,” Twitchy reported.

This GOP candidate, John James, is really impressive. “John James is a husband, father, combat veteran and businessman. He is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-business conservative who has demonstrated energetic leadership, clarity of vision and a passion for service from the battlefield to the boardroom,” his website says. “John’s lived the American Dream and wants to protect that Dream for future generations.”

James’ website adds, “At 17, John made the decision to serve his country. After graduating from West Point in 2004, he became a Ranger-qualified aviation officer. John went on to serve with distinction in Operation Iraqi Freedom where he earned a Combat Action Badge (CAB) and two Air Medals, among other awards, while logging 753.8 flight hours in theater leading two Apache platoons.”

The Democrats, like Abdul El-Sayed, are angry, and they are now randomly attacking GOP candidates for fun. But, John James is exactly the kind of senator we need in Washington, DC. The hatred and viciousness on the left is ramping up, and that’s why we must stay strong and counterpunch every disgusting attack. Thank God, we have awesome candidates like John James, who embody our American values and are ready and willing to humbly serve our nation.
