CNBC Fail: Wrong Photo Of Yang And Gabbard In Fundraising Pic

Really, SquawkBox CNBC?

A graphic showing presidential candidates and their fundraising levels (don't get me started) used an image of Kirsten Gillibrand for Tulsi Gabbard.

They also used a picture of Geoff Yang for Andrew Yang -- the same Geoff Yang who appears from time to time on Squawk Box.

It does not help matters that it's the non-caucasian candidates getting a messed up photo. It's time to discipline an employee, CNBC.

Can you help us out?
