After watching a clip of Donald Trump telling a crowd on Friday night that Pennsylvania as we now know it will cease to exist if he loses the election, two MSNBC hosts were left speechless while a third could be heard laughing in the background.
During his speech Friday night in Harrisburg, the former president told the crowd that a President Joe Biden win in November would be bad news for the state.
"We’re not going to have Pennsylvania. They’ll change the name,” Trump stated. “They’re going to change the name of Pennsylvania.”
On Saturday morning, MSNBC "The Weekend" co-host Alicia Menendez shared the clip and, as it concluded, tilted her head in confusion, Symone Sanders Townsend looked down and was unable to speak, and former Republican National Committee head Michael Steele, who was off camera, started laughing.
Sanders Townsend finally stated, "Michael, you said something the other day, I was like, 'Yes!' Donald Trump, obviously, he has trouble stringing a sentence together. The American people, the voters at least, do not think of him as senile or crazy, his inability to put a sentence together. They are not registering concern about his age. I think that is because there has not been a sustained campaign from the time Donald Trump came onto the stage down a little elevator to brand him as such."

"I agree," Steele replied. "The reason why it's hard to do it is because Donald Trump is so dammed entertaining, because he is entertaining us."
He added, "You don't look at him through the same critical lens you look at the guy who is obviously much more serious, the president of the United States. You then pick apart those flaws: the guy who you find entertaining has them, as well. He [Trump] can't put a sentence together correctly, wants to rename Pennsylvania. That says a lot about how Donald Trump stepped into the space."
