Skip to comments.White reporter demands to know how authentically Cuban Ted Cruz is
Posted on 05/10/2015 1:53:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Mark Halperin of Bloomberg interviewed Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a candidate for president of the United States, recently and endeavored to find out how authentically Cuban he is. This line of questioning has not, so far as is known, been directed at any other presidential candidate. Barack Obamas blackness has not been called into question, nor has Hillary Clintons womanhood. Ruben Navarrette, writing on Saturday for the San Jose Mercury News, was appalled, to say the least. Halperin asked Cruz what kind of Cuban food he liked, if he listened to Cuban music and was invited to address Bernie Sanders en Espanol.
Navarrette put it succinctly when he opined, I kept waiting for Halperin to ask Cruz to play the conga drums like Desi Arnaz while dancing salsa and sipping cafe con leche -- all to prove the Republican is really Cuban.(continued)

Halperin probably wants to ask Bobby Jindhal if he’s ready to campaign for Great White Father.
It was really disgusting. This hack should be tarred and feathered - such childish prodding in the attempt to get Cruz to issue his Hispanic bona fides.
Here we see the extremely poor quality of "writing" on the Examiner blog.
It's a blog and the bum writing it will be overdosed in a ditch within a week.
Unless he is joking..Navarette is a racist idiot. Even joking it’s in poor taste.
I meant Halparin.
You do know that it has to be excerpted and linked? Not my choice.
I have answered in a fake “hispanic Accent”
“whale Ju know....”
But Examiner blog is a pet project of mine and
everyone should know that it is just some bums
drooling over a library computer, spouting illiterate
Ted should have asked Mark Halperin if he is still sexually attracted to little boys.
I think you meant prison, care center or asylum computers in many cases...
since Hillary is campaigning to be the first female President, i think Mark Halperin should ask her to pull down her pants and prove it !
If Cruz doesn’t know what a turn signal is and drives 5 miles below the speed limit in the left lane and won’t move over under any circumstances, then he’s authentic.
Has anyone asked Picasso if he is authentically Cubist?
I saw a clip of the interview, and it was pretty lame. For the 2016 election cycle, I think the Republican candidates should routinely “break the rules” of the liberal media, and simply ask their interviewer what point they are trying to make. e.g.—”These are odd questions to ask of a presidential candidate. What point are you trying to make to the listening audience? I will address that issue directly, if you will tell me and the audience where you are going with all this.” “Have you asked these questions of any other presidential candidate?”
The reason he did not say it is he is smarter than me.
Now that is effin’ racist dude.
O, my aching sides! That Mark Halperin! What a sense of humor. O, my gosh. I can't stop laughing. I can hardly wait for Halperin to do the same thing with Hillary. Hey, Mark. Ask her to demonstrate how she pees.
Ted needs to attend the Hillary Clinton School of Accents. These people make me sick!
