President Trump Says Crowds At His Rallies Sound Like Penn State Football Games

President Donald Trump visited Moon Township outside of Pittsburgh Saturday night to support Republican candidate Rick Saccone in the 18th congressional district special House election, which is Tuesday, March 13.

“It sounds like a Penn State football game. It sounds like an Ohio State football game,” Trump said about the crowds who come out to his rallies, including this one.

It’s not every day you hear Penn State and Ohio State together in this sort of context.

This isn’t the first time Trump has referenced Penn State at a rally; he asked a Pittsburgh crowd about Joe Paterno in 2016.  Trump also tweeted about the university quite a bit in the aftermath of the Sandusky scandal.

But the crowd apparently didn’t sound like a Pitt football game, even though the rally was held only 20 minutes from Pitt’s campus. We’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
