A Texas Democrat tweeted out public election information revealing top donors to President Donald Trump’s campaign — and conservatives are freaking out.
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX), whose brother Julián Castro is running for the Democratic nomination, revealed the names of Republicans who had donated the maximum amount to Trump’s re-election campaign this year, and Fox News hosted the president’s son to complain.
“I’ve seen what these things do,” Donald Trump Jr. said, “with the Joaquin Castro craziness, putting out a list.”

The donor list came from publicly available information posted online, as required by law, but Trump Jr. compared Castro’s revelations to a “kill list” allegedly compiled as a high schooler by the 24-year-old gunman who killed nine people in Dayton.
“That list screams like the Dayton, Ohio, shooter’s list, right?” Trump Jr. said.
The president’s son then apparently mixed up Castro and his brother, the Democratic presidential hopeful.
“When a radical left-wing politician polling 0 percent does this for either attention or a call to action, it’s pretty scary,” Trump Jr. said. “That was same thing that the Dayton, Ohio, shooter did. People should be fed up with this nonsense.”
Holy shit. On Fox & Friends, Donald Trump Jr compares the list Joaquin Castro released of public info about who has donated to Trump with a mass shooter's kill list.

Has anything changed since Burning Man’s sex assault and labor issues were exposed?
The last weekend in August marks the start of Burning Man, a week-long, festival in the Nevada desert consisting of freewheeling performance art, fanciful costumes, and a lot of drugs. The anarchic party with more than 50,000 attendees constitutes a pilgrimage for many attendees, lured by the promise of leaving the “default world” behind in exchange for a transformative or even spiritual experience.
Truckers are facing a ‘bloodbath’ in their industry — and it’s turning many in the pro-Trump group against him: report
Truckers are numerous, conservative, and hurting. And despite their widespread support for Donald Trump’s candidacy in 2016, a new report from Business Insider suggests the pain in the industry might be turning these workers away from the president.
The political trends in trucking are not insignificant. According to the American Trucking Associations, there were an estimated 3.5 million truck drivers in 2018. RTS Financial has found that there are 7.4 million jobs total “tied to the trucking industry.” And Business Insider reported that nearly 90 percent of truckers are registered voters, higher than the general population.
WATCH: Trump’s collusion with Russia is now a topic for impeachment — along with obstruction and racism
President Donald Trump's interactions with Russia are now a topic of the impeachment investigation.
"There was an important development in support for impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives today," MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell reported Tuesday. "Important both in who the new support comes from and what that support is based on."
"Congresswoman Lauren Underwood of Illinois is one of the freshmen Democrats who flipped a Republican district last year in winning her election. She brings the total number of House Democrats supporting impeachment now to 126 -- a majority of the Democrats' 235 members of the House," he explained.
