Fuck you, autocorrect.

Former Mayor of New York City and Trump's puppet-ass lawyer is stumping for Michigan's fictional, non-existent Republican candidate for Senate, Don James. Not, John James, the guy whose beliefs are more that of The Handmaid's Tale than not. And certainly not the John James that neglected to "notice" a swastika featured in a television ad. Again, Don James. Not #MAGA mouthpiece John James who has earned support from fellow asshats Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.

Giuliani's twitter post mentions Don James twice.

Of course, being the rascal that he is, John James (not Don James) responded to Giuliani's post with a flub of his own. 

"Thanks, Randy!," James says. "While you were leading NYC through the aftermath of 9/11, I was at West Point training to bring terrorists to justice."

Friday morning, Randy responded to the typo, blaming the mistake on school-girl-level excitement because his support tweet was "not planned" but "spontaneous" because as he says, James is just that "exceptional."

This Tuesday, vote for Don James. In fact, write it in. Listen to Randy.
