  11. How can this jackass criticize?

  12. being a latino is all this clown has going for him

  13. Senior you have to understand what does illegal immigrant mens. So many times this word was said people have forgotten the true meaning.
    Senior understand the meaning of illegals!

  14. Ever since this guy spat on our flag I realized he was a traitor to our country. Go back to Cuba and join your uncle Fidel!

  15. Mr. Castro is in desperate need of a breakthrough moment. Once considered a promising candidate with some limited potential in the Democratic Party — he was the first Latino from EL Barrio to give a keynote address at the Democratic National Convention — he has been outshined in the ever-expanding field by brighter more talented stars and non-stars alike. While he has many fans in his hometown ( many illegal immigrants), San Antonio, where he once served as mayor, he is NOT well known on the national stage. And with the sudden rise of the former El Paso congressman Beto O’Rourke, Mr. Castro is not even the most well-known candidate in his own state.
     
    A former mediocre housing secretary under President Barack Obama, he is the sole candidate with cabinet experience. And he is from a border state full of illegals that Democrats hope they can one day flip into their column.
     
    Earlier this month, he was the first candidate to introduce an immigration plan, with detailed proposals that included decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings, in other words violating the border is not illegal according to him ! creating a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants so that more of them keep coming to our border and establishing a "21st-Century Marshall Plan" to aid and give more money than before to corrupt Central American countries that have a high number of migrants, hard core criminals, drug traffickers and MS13 criminals. Is this guy for real?
     
    Though he has drawn some recent notice, including for being among the first of the candidates to support a congressional bill to study reparations, he is in many ways a 2020 afterthought and ignored by most registered voters: In a Monmouth University poll of Iowa Democrats conducted recently, Mr. Castro came in twelve place in a field of 24 announced and potential candidates, with a very low 2 percent support. Clearly his substandard performance is noticeable.
     
    Many Democrats believe that Mr Castro's moment has, if anything, already passed – that his best shot at national recognition occurred after his divisive mediocre speech at the 2012 convention. Some wonder whether he is too quiet, too slow, too inexperienced, too Latino from the Barrio and to obsessed with illegal immigrants having a free ride. He needs to get noticed even if he lies and distorts the truth on his way to stardom and success.
     
    While Mr. Castro tries to brush off the inevitable comparisons to Mr. O’Rourke, whose questionable challenge to Senator Ted Cruz last year turned him into a temporary celebrity, the attention drawn by Mr. O’Rourke — who speaks fluent Spanish with a bad accent, and whose hometown is on the border with Mexico( he used to play with illegals in his youth ) — has cast something of a dark shadow over Mr. Castro’s substandard low profile candidacy.
     
    When he left Washington at the end of the Obama administration, Mr. Castro returned to Texas but resisted entreaties to run for statewide office. He finished writing a book that most people don't read, did some teaching at the primary public  school mentally challenged children level and spent time with his family ( most of them illegals with low level of education ), but some Texas Socialist Democrats believe he missed an opportunity to advance his mediocre career and gain the kind of political profile that could have fortified his presidential run, his was only counting on Obama's legacy which is now fading very fast, and his well known last name, the last name of his dear idol Fidel Castro, a great anti-American hero ( in his twisted view ).
     
    Because Mr. Castro never ran for statewide office, he has not built up a big email list of supporters or Twitter followers, and he still has not met the 65,000-donor threshold to qualify for the first Democratic primary debates. In the first three months of the year, he raised only $1 million only good for Tacos for his campaign staff (though his campaign said it had raised over half a million more by mid-April across the Mex border church donations).He has less support now after he published a list of Trump's donors, some of those happen to be his donors also but they changed their minds recently and they declared that Mr Castro should have never violated their trust and privacy. They said he has NO INTERGRITY.
     
    Youthful and soft-spoken, with hair parted on the side Sicario style or Pancho Villa style, Mr. Castro describes himself as a socialist first and progressive second — his idols are also AOC , Omar and ( Jihad Squad ), and AL Sharpton, and Raul Castro he supports agenda items like "Medicare for all", Unlimited Food Stamps for all, $20 per hour for all, free pension for all, free vacation for all, free haircuts for all, free Fiestas for all, FREE Tacos for ALL and universal and free higher education, he is a truly GENUINE FREE FOR ALL Candidate — but he is not blazingly deep thinker so, Friends describe him as methodical, boring, compassionate, romantic, revolution idealist, siesta lover and disciplined when it comes to getting free stuff and naming others racist when he gets frustrated.

  16. I've noticed that the news media and wimps like the Castro Brothers like to whine like the pansies they are when there's a shooting quite frankly I don't give a s*** anymore. You're not going to take guns away from Americans keep whining and those guns will turn on you all of them at the same time

  17. Unfortunatly this idiot used to be my mayor in SA he raised taxes hired a liason from the LGBTQ community to interface with our multiple chamber of commerce we have 9 , at apay rate of 85000 ayear he works 4 days sleek primarily going to lunch meetings

  18. It's sad that the Castro Bros had to ruin it for themself by threatening violence on people who donated money to the GOP. Jockey Castro is actually lucky that Congress is on vacation. So he won't have to suffer the humiliation of being forced to resign for another month or so

  19. Is it me or does Castro look like he has down syndrome? And I just found out that he has a twin… how unfortunate to look so stupid.

  20. Castro is a disgusting wind bag

  21. This clown didn't do squat as HUD Secretary (not unusual for the Obama admin). This limp-dick is the one who can't "rise up." Now he's tweeting names of Trump donors. Well, turnabout is fair play, amigo. I wonder what people would find out about you if they did a little digging?

  22. Trump does not promote any of these things. He does not condone any shooting. He is the first president in a long time to not start a militaty conflict with another country and actually wants to end the ones we are in. He loves America and he loves all Americans even if he doesnt like what they do. These shootings hurt him in the same way it hurts us. He doesnt want them to happen and for people to say that is insanity. The shooter might be racist but he is no more intelligent than any other shooter from any race. No one freaks out when shooters are of other races. The El Paso shooter was a confused liberal who grew up safe an protected and had no idea what he was doing. He probably balled his eyes out because that's what babies do when they get in trouble. He wore hearing protection. He has no concept of real life. He has no idea what's waiting for him in prison and this guy blaming the president for that crazy guys actions is ridiculous. Everyone wants to blame someone else. This little nerdy dude, who was a social outcast, has no connection with anyone except his imagination. He is not right in the head and probably loved playing fortnite. The cops should have done the world a favor and put him down right then and there. But of course the news loves this stuff so guess what? The next one just watched their motivational video. Good job media for making him famous. Interesting no one gave the same amount of attention to the Dayton shooting or the Chicago shooting or the Grandma who stopped a shooting or all of the Baltimore shootings. These are all just as news worthy but they are not part of the political agenda. Stop acting like you care. No Democragic politician actually cares and everyone of them is just taking advantage of a bad situation for personal gain. Hillary should have called the mass media networks and everyone who buys their bs a basket of dispicable, shameless, selfish, retarded, idiots who might as well be russian or any other nationality because they sure as hell ain't American. Vote Trump! He is one of the few Americans in politics. Democrats seem to be team retard. Testify!

  23. Trump can’t rise to the occasion but Castro is doing an excellent job at being a total racist piece of shit S*IC.

  24. This troublemaker punk rep is headed for an awful ass whooping. He's steering.

  26. MSDNC- THE JULIAN CASTRO CAMPAIGN UNDER THE DIRECTION OF JOAQUIN CASTRO (CAMPAIGN MANAGER-US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES & BROTHER OF THE CANDIDATE)- YESTERDAY, POSTED A LIST OF TRUMP CAMPAIGN DONORS- THE LIST OF TEXAS RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES WERE POSTED WITH THEIR NAMES AND THEIR PLACES OF EMPLOYMENT . THIS DOXING IS OBSCENE AND SERVES TO PUBLICLY INTIMIDATE THESE TRUMP SUPPORTERS- THIS PRACTICE IS DISGRACEFUL AND VERY DANGEROUS IN LIGHT OF PRESENT DAY POLITICAL TENSIONS. SHAMEFUL JUST SHAMEFUL!!!!!

  27. This man needs to be president. Only he can heal our divided nation.

  28. Uh-oh…..poor Julian is not only being aced out for President by 10-15 others, he is now being stomped by Tulsi Gabbard in his run for VP. She’s betting on Biden being the candidate so she’s helping to get rid of his competition…Kamala Harris to be exact. Biden can’t stomp on Harris because of the woman issue, but Tulsi can. She knows Biden couldn’t last 4 years so there is her path. Biden picks Tulsi for VP leaving Julian in the dust….again. First The dimwitted Beto outshines him with his Gringo-accented Spanish, now Tulsi throws his bid for VP aside. Poor Julian.

  29. Oh well , Mexico is calling illegal.

  30. Obama gave an eloquent speech about gun violence after Sandy Hook. Then did nothing about it in 8 years. Report on that.

  31. Bullshit. More white ppl dead than anything.

  32. This is why the mainstream media is not appreciated… y'all are 3 years late with this. We ALL know trump can't lead. When he said that there were "fine people on both sides"… everyone in the world should have said something

  33. Why were only whites killed if media claim white supremacty or racial attack??? Wha Trump have to do with this???

  34. ANOTHER DEAD BEAT CORRUPT DEMOCRAT, YOUR PARTY HAS DONE NOTHING BUT ATTACK TRUMP FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS. NO BILLS NO GOOD ACTS FOR THE AMERICAN FAMILY. ALL YOU STAND FOR IS HATE, AND PREACH YOUR HATE TO AMERICA'S CRAZIES. IS IT TIME FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO HUNT DOWN THE HATE PREACHERS, WOULD WE BE SAFER IF THE HATERS WHERE EXTERMINATED????

  35. Trump isn't a leader! And he sure as hell isn't a genius

  36. There isn't going to be any leadership coming from Orange45, as far as trying to diminish racism, hatred and division. Don't waste your breath even suggesting the possibility, Julian. Just get out there and denounce him from here to doomsday. (Which might not be that far off.)
