Joe Scarborough totally behind Joaquin Castro’s effort to name & shame Trump donors (then it gets awkward)

 Republicans pounced after Joaquin Castro posted the names of San Antonio residents who have donated the maximum amount ($2,700) to the Trump campaign. After criticism, Joaquin — the brother of Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro — claimed that what he did was perfectly acceptable because there was no “call to action.”
MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough thinks it’s totally appropriate to publicize the names and workplaces of Trump donors for the presumed purpose of shaming them. He started out by disagreeing with Rep. Kevin McCarthy that it was an effort to “target and harass Americans”:
In other words, Trump donors have it coming, according to Scarborough:
If your business funds Trump’s campaign, then you are supporting white supremacy.
Full stop.
Look at his rallies.
Listen to the chants of “Send her back!”
Hear the calls of “Shoot them!”
Your money funds that.
Your business supports that.
You are complicit.
