Chris Matthews Cruz and Rubio

According to the left, Elizabeth Warren is a real Indian, Rachel Dolezal is a real black person and Chelsea Manning is a real woman. Different standards apply however, if you’re a Republican.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested on the air this week, that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio aren’t real Hispanics.

NewsBusters has the transcript:

Chris Matthews Not Sure If Cruz, Rubio Really Hispanic; They’re ‘Cuban Nationals’ Though

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Who’s out to get who?

TERKEL: Uh, I think Ted Cruz. You already saw he’s starting to get Marco Rubio. Didn’t call him out by name but started to preview, you know, you don’t want someone’s who’s soft on immigration, you don’t want someone supporting sugar subsidies, for example. So, Trump and Carson, they didn’t go after each other. But –

MATTHEWS: Sugar subsidies are worthy of a presidential debate now.

TERKEL: – it’s going to get nastier.

MATTHEWS: I couldn’t believe that last night.

TERKEL: I was surprised it was mentioned too, but, you know, he is clearly watching Rubio.

MATTHEWS: So you’re trying to insinuate that Marco Rubio, a fellow, uh, Spanish surname, I’m not sure the right word is Hispanic for them, because they are Cuban nationals or whatever, or come from Cuba. But, uh, is he going to insinuate that he is still basically for what he calls amnesty?

Here’s the video:

The reaction on Twitter was swift and harsh:

Chris Matthews should moderate a debate of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio against all the Democrats currently running for president in Spanish.

Guess who would win.
