Rep. Castro's Attempt to Shame Trump Supporters Backfires

    2019-08-07 Source: TTN by: TTN Staff
 

Texas Democrat Representative Joaquin Castro tried to shame Trump donors by publishing their information. The information is public, but this move was at the least, distasteful.

The move backfired however when Castro revealed the name of one of his donors who also donated to the president.

According to Fox News:

    EXCLUSIVE: Trump donors whose names and employers were posted in a highly controversial tweet by Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro blasted the Texas congressman on Wednesday for what they described as a “ridiculous” stunt and, in interviews with Fox News, rejected his claim that they are “fueling a campaign of hate” against Hispanics.

The count is up to 6 of his or his brother's donors.

His "Joaquin Castro, Super Genius" business cards should arrive later today.

I have news for Steves.   By election day, Castro is going to have a helluva lot more than "44" people helping whoever will be running against him.   
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)

There is a reason that Castro, who used to be on the Democrat Leadership team as  Chief Deputy Whip, is no longer in that position.

And I think we see now see why, as even the Democrats do not like his tactics.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

That's two solid facts.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

I don't have the exact date and time but it was reported that he said it in a speech delivered somewhere during the 1944 campaign.  The Norman Thomas High School in Manhattan and the Norman Thomas ‘05 Library at Princeton University’s Forbes college are named after him. He was also the grandfather of Newsweek columnist Evan Thomas.
