MSNBC host Joe Scarborough came unglued Tuesday over former President Donald Trump’s remarks about foreign languages.

Trump said migrants are illegally crossing the southern border into the United States and speaking languages “from the planet Mars” Monday evening in an interview with Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN). Scarborough did not hold back in reacting to the GOP frontrunner’s remarks in a segment on “Morning Joe.”

“That mysterious language is Spanish, as long as we’re keeping track,” co-host Willie Geist said.

“Yes,” Scarborough replied. “¿Qué pasa?”

“What did he say? What did he say?” Scarborough exclaimed, making erratic gestures. “Oh my god, what is this on my plate? It’s called a fajita. Ahhhh!”

Trump told the RSBN host that the children of illegal migrants are put “in the place” of American students at schools in the United States, stating that American students “no longer have a seat” in their classrooms in places like New York City. An entire high school in New York switched its students to online learning to temporarily make room for roughly 2,000 illegal migrants in January.

Trump has heavily campaigned against Biden on the migrant crisis, taking a hardline stance against the administration’s open border policies and surging number of illegal encounters. There were more than 2.4 million migrant encounters in fiscal year 2023 alone under the Biden administration, up from roughly 2.3 million in fiscal year 2022 and 1.7 million in fiscal year 2021, according to federal data.
