Those liberal communists over at MSNBC think we all look alike.

Congressman Joaquin Castro, who is in Panama City at the Summit of the Americas, had to politely correct host Andrea Mitchell of Andrea Mitchell Reports, who stated he had a "Cuban-American background," according to Fox News Latino — yes you read that correctly. 



“Well, I’m Mexican-American,” Castro quickly responded, before acknowledging he shares a last name with the Cuban president. 

How embarrassing. Someone needs to do better interview prep.
