CNBC HOST’S STUNNING SLAM ON TED CRUZ: ‘CAN WE GET SOME…MEXICAN MUSIC, MAYBE?’

CNBC’s Steve Liesman made an offhand crack Tuesday about freshman Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and “Mexican music” that has some saying he went too far.

“We’re going to call this the Senator Ted Cruz jobs report,” Liesman said in reference to Tuesday’s unemployment report. “These are the jobless claims of Senator Ted Cruz.”

An image of Cruz appeared on the CNBC studio screens, prompting Liesman to say, “Can we get some music to go along with that? Some Mexican music, maybe?”

Shortly thereafter, some upbeat music started playing (though it’s unclear exactly what it was). Cruz is of Cuban descent.

Here’s a more complete version:

Liesman’s decision to refer to the September jobs report as the “Ted Cruz jobs report” is curious. The host is presumably blaming the report’s poor showing on the partial government shutdown inspired by the Texas senator. However, the shutdown lasted from Oct. 1 to Oct. 16. The jobs report released Tuesday covers September.

A CNBC spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheBlaze.

The Left is overwhelmingly racist, but they get away with it.

Minorities don't pay enough attention to figure it out, and besides, they're getting free gov't money ...

Obviously, facts don't matter to the Obamamedia, or they'd at least make reference to his actual heritage and not just stereotype it.
Just being unique doesn't make you useful.

This kind of screeching histrionics I expect from MSNBC, but I thought CNBC was a cut above this kind of nonsense.  Silly me.

The apology is pathetic and utterly unbelievable.

Lip service, but will be good enough for his fellow leftist.   :chairbang:

Listen, everybody knows Mexicans are too busy stealing hubcaps and picking lettuce (grapes?) to be watching it.  Now if he would have said something about grape soda or bagels, then worry.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

It's not racist if the target is a conservative.

Just say you want Kenyan music the next time you do a story on the president and everything will balance out.
