"We're going to call this the 'Senator Ted Cruz Jobs Report,' " Liesman said on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

"There he is!" Liesman shouted when the network showed a picture of Cruz. 

"Can we get some music to go along with that, some Mexican music or something?"

Cruz's father was born in Cuba and his mother is of Irish and Italian descent. Neither are of Mexican descent.
