Reid’s response to a reporter’s question about immigration policy on Monday echoed 19-year-old Nationals player Bryce Harper’s response earlier this month when he was asked about drinking alcohol: “I don’t want to answer that question, that’s a clown question, bro.”

Reid might have cemented his fanboy status on Tuesday, but he had already established his opinion of Harper.

Reid, a baseball fan, met Harper in May, tweeting about it at the time. Harper also hails from Las Vegas, a point of pride for Reid.

Shirts emblazoned with Harper’s response have already hit the streets of Nationals’s hometown Washington, and with Reid’s endorsement, the catch phrase likely has just caught fire.
