Republicans must be exhausted today, what with all that pouncing they’ve been doing over Joaquin Castro trying to doxx private citizens who donated to Donald Trump. Think they’ve got it in themselves to pounce a little more? NBC News seems to think so:
Trump campaign says Rep. Joaquin Castro posting publicly available information about the names and employers of some San Antonio-area donors to President Trump's re-election was "reckless and irresponsible." https://t.co/qunMcq0x8Q

The information was publicly available, you guys. What’s the big deal?

It’s public information and why wouldn’t they be proud of their donations?

Why is this irresponsible? Is Trump ashamed of his backers?

Public record is public record. The Trump who pumps up lunatic followers to the point of killing people says exposing a donor list is reckless & irresponsible? Unbelievable.

Public information, he did nothing wrong. I can thing of sooooo many more reckless and irresponsible things Trump has done. Go back under your rock!

Who cares what Trump says. The news media ought to be doing this. Donors are A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD. We ought to know who is propping up these candidates and PUBLIC officials. I hope other members of Congress will follow Castro's lead.

So I shouldn’t be able to boycott a business that gives money to a white supremacist? None of these people will end up harmed other than financially, unlike the stuff that Trumps followers do like shooting up Walmarts.

They’re only gonna be hurt financially! No one would ever get violent!
These people are rationalizing harassment campaigns against private citizens who donate to the Wrong Politician. Mission accomplished, NBC News.

so the story line isn't the actual reckless and irresponsible behavior rather the calling-out of reckless and irresponsible behavior?

And the media is already coming to his rescue. Give us break. He posted it in a nice convenient format to have people either harass those people or ruin their businesses. Stop taking up for this dirtbag. Media bias again…

The Trump campaign was right to call Castro’s actions “reckless and irresponsible.” NBC News’ brand of journalism should be viewed in the same way.
