<p>As if they didn&rsquo;t learn anything from MSNBC&rsquo;s Chris Matthews, the panel on Monday&rsquo;s<em> Nightly Show</em> decided to call into question the Hispanic credentials of Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to the point where the collective community supposedly does not<strong> &ldquo;even necessarily consider them Latino because they haven&rsquo;t embraced their heritage.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>After discussing the various divisions and differences across the various Hispanic nationalities, host Larry Wilmore tossed this question out to the panel of gay, liberal, illegal immigrant commentator Jose Antonio Vargas and <em>Nightly Show</em> contributors Jordan Carlos and Grace Parra: <strong>&ldquo;Why do you think Cruz and Rubio don&#39;t really embrace their Hispanic heritage?&rdquo;</strong></p>
