People Just Can’t Handle The Heat Coming From This Handsome Congressional Candidate

Ammar Campa-Najjar, 28, recently announced his plan to run for California’s 50th Congressional District to unseat Republican incumbent Duncan Hunter Jr. In a Medium post, Campa-Najjar laid out why he has decided to run for Congress and it all centers around empowering the American people — all American people — to attain their dreams. Campa-Najjar wants to defend our democracy and modernize our government to make things like filing taxes and applying for small business loans easier for Americans. But, above all else, Campa-Najjar wants to bring the American people together during these polarizing times.

Campa-Najjar, whose mother is Mexican and father is of Middle Eastern descent, is throwing his hat into the political world to bring the country together.

“If elected, I’ll continue fighting for working families, small business owners, and our veterans,” Campa-Najjar wrote in his Medium post announcing his candidacy. “My priorities are focused on addressing the most urgent challenges of our time and our district, I call them DEM priorities: Defend, Empower, Modernize.”

Campa-Najjar has worked with many top-ranking Democratic politicians and worked in President Obama’s administration getting letters to the president.

The 28-year-old, Twitter-breaking heartthrob was a campaign organizer in San Diego for President Obama’s 2012 re-election. At the end of the campaign, Campa-Najjar joined the Obama administration in Washington and worked as a conduit to get the messages of the American people to the president.

“When you sent me to serve in the Executive Office of the President, I read hundreds of your letters every day. Each night, the president would read 10 of those letters. Some were uplifting, but many of them were tragically heart breaking — struggles better left imagined than described,” Campa-Najjr wrote on Medium.

He continued: “I heard about what wakes you up in the morning, and keeps you up at night: Am I one sickness away from losing my home? I haven’t had a raise in years and my family is barely making it paycheck to paycheck, what if something happens to me? Am I going to have to miss another birthday or Christmas with my children just to put food on the table and clothes on their backs? Will I ever be able to save enough to put my kids through school and retire with dignity? Can we dream the American dream, or are we going to spend the next 4 or 8 years living a nightmare?”

As soon as his candidacy went public, everyone started to focus on his dashing good looks before his politics.


And people were *very* thirsty.


Calm down. He would technically be a public servant so you’d be his boss.

There was really only one word that came to everyone’s lips when they saw his photo.


?I’m not that innocent. ?

Campa-Najjar hasn’t even started his Congressional campaign and people already want him to be president.


But, like, hopefully they know that the presidency isn’t just a beauty contest.

Folks are lining up for a chance to donate to and help with his campaign.


*quits job to volunteer for his campaign*

His photos have become a religious experience for some people.


?? ?? ??

Not to mention that he might have finally figured out how to get young people to vote.


Time for the political parties to start taking notes.

Like, legit. Some people cannot wait to vote for this man.


When’s the last time you saw people willing to walk anywhere?

When there were no words, people were able to sum up their feelings with super appropriate GIFs.


^^ That’s what true and unfiltered love looks like, folks.

There was a moment when people thought he was just one of the Jonas brothers.


And, tbh, Joe Jonas should be very grateful for that comparison. #NoShadeJustFacts

But one Twitter user dropped the truest warning to Campa-Najjar’s opponent.


*passes out from the realness of this truth*

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Fierce

AOC Gets Under Ted Cruz’s Skin With Crack About His Mexican Getaway After He Accuses Her Of Pushing For ‘open borders’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz are at it again on Twitter. This time it’s about immigration policy. After recently traveling to the US-Mexican border to underline the recent rise in immigration, Cruz accused AOC of pushing for a “full open borders” policy.

And of course, AOC got him with some solid zingers.

AOC in turn hit back at Cruz for recently fleeing his home state of Texas during its power grid collapse to vacation in Cancún.

In response to Cruz’s attack, AOC suggested Mexico avoid allowing Cruz in the next time he attempts to vacation there. She also called on him to resign from office for his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“Ted, this is pretty rich coming from someone who fled their own home (and responsibilities) during an environmental crisis to cross the border and seek refuge in Mexico,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also you funded cages, expanded cages, and yet you’re complaining about cages. You have no policy, just puff.”

Ocasio-Cortez accused Republicans of hypocritically attacking the current administration’s detention of migrant children at the border after they supported President Donald Trump’s policy of separating migrant parents from their children.

Currently, Democrats like AOC are calling on Biden to impliment more liberal immigration policies.

Republicans have strongly expressed their dislike for the recent rise in migrants which has come as a result of Biden’s reversal of Trump’s most rigid border policies.

AOC is currently a co-sponsor of the Roadmap to Freedom resolution. The resolution calls on the Federal Government to develop and implement a Roadmap to Freedom “in order to overhaul the outdated immigration system in the United States that has gone without significant reform for decades, and to relieve the great human impact an unjust system bears on communities around the country.”
