Today, the Breakfast Klub’s Marcus Davis, oil and gas consultant Natalie Arceneaux, and “Native Texan” columnist Joe Holley discuss Houston receiving federal support to prepare for nuclear threats, a Texas lawmaker trolled on Twitter by a fake Congressman and a Houston man sentenced to life in prison after his ninth DWI conviction.
