Sen. Harry Reid certainly can get cranky, and he didn’t hold back after the GOP nominee visited in October and didn’t pronounce the name of the state to his liking, tweeting that if Trump “wants to come down from the penthouse his daddy bought him to lecture us on Nevada, he could at least pronounce it correctly.”
The next day, CNN published its own helpful guide on how to pronounce Nevada, noting that politicians have a particularly difficult time getting it right.

The struggle is real. Just don’t stop and ask CNN for directions to Nevada, as you might end up in another state entirely.

Hmm … looks from here like a clear voter suppression effort, trying to get voters to drive to the wrong state on Election Day like that.
