After spending the first year of his campaign hiding from Michiganders, failed politician John James is desperately trying to paper over his toxic positions. The problem is James can’t get his story straight on Trump and his failed COVID-19 response.
In the latest flip flop in his ongoing Donald Dilemma, this week James refused to answer whether he thought Trump appropriately responded to the pandemic. But just last month James broke his silence with his first Michigan TV interview in 335 days to praise the President’s coronavirus response.
This comes after James tried to create distance from Trump in an interview last week by walking back his “2000%” support for the President with a blatant lie about his previous comments. Despite James “trying to have it both ways,” even the President’s family knows he’s “all for” Trump’s agenda.
“John James may be out of hiding but he’s still trying to hide his toxic positions and mislead Michiganders,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “James can’t keep his lies straight and it’s starting to show, but the truth is he’s not running to serve Michigan, he’s running to serve Trump and be a rubber stamp for his agenda.”
The Michigan Democratic Party launched JohnJamesRevealed.com to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. For the first year of his campaign, James was largely in hiding from Michigan press and voters to try to paper over his out-of-touch record, and has only come out of hiding after facing scrutiny from Michiganders.
