Chris Matthews described the Thursday night Fox debate without Donald Trump as being a contest between two Cubans. On his ultra-left, politically correct show Hardball, Matthews erupted at the news that Trump has said he will not participate.
“Who’s gonna watch a debate between the two Cuban guys? Who's gonna watch a debate between Rubio, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz? Who cares?” Matthews exclaimed.
Both Rubio and Cruz have Cuban parents. Both of Rubio's parents immigrated from Cuba while Cruz's father is from the island nation.
While his guests didn't respond to Matthews' crazy statement, Twitter did. Talk show host Larry Elder got straight to the point:
Wow, democrat @hardball_chris said, "Who's going to watch a debate between 2 Cubans." Democrats founded the KKK. Is racism in THEIR DNA?— Larry Elder (@larryelder) January 27, 2016
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly got in on the action.

Even the fellow lefties at Politico took note.
