GEORGE CARDENAS: You want me to just guess, what, because they happen to be blue eyed and blonde –

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You know what, up yours. I mean look, you know what I mean -- It’s ridiculous that you would even say something like that.

CARDENAS: I’m just saying.

[CROSSTALK]

CARLSON: You know what, what a loathsome little demagogue you are to say something like that. I’m asking you about, no, no, what a loathsome little demagogue you are Mr. Cardenas to say something --

CARDENAS: How do you want me to ask? How do you want me to ask whether they’re citizens or not? No, I want to know.

CARLSON: I want you to answer my question simply.

CARDENAS: I’m answering it.
