Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz on Monday described President TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out "subversion" at VA MORE calling Chuck Todd "a sleeping son of a bitch" as vulgar and "not a good look for the president". Todd pressed. "If it doesn't matter what he says there, if we're to dismiss everything he says at a campaign rally as I think you're trying to imply, then are you saying we shouldn't cover these things?" "He's a sleeping son of a b-". "But again, don't take these campaign rallies and focus them on that's what it is".
"I bring my kids up to respect the office of the presidency and the president".
"The booing is getting stronger by the day whenever he goes out there and whips up like it's a Mussolini rally", he said.
Meanwhile, Trump's treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, appeared to shrug off the United States leader's tendency to give people "funny names".
Todd isn't the only person to object to Trump's use of objectionable language during his speech. "He's using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally and obviously, there were a lot of amusing moments on, on, on that rally", to which a clearly angry and personally offended Chuck Todd answers, "Yeah, they were hilarious".
"Yes, they were hilarious", Todd dryly responded.
"I think the president of the United States has every right to hit back against Chuck Todd or anyone else if he thinks that he has said something or reported something that is unfair or untrue", Kurtz said.
Trump supporter Jack Bailey appeared to be enjoying the president's comment against Todd.
"'Sleepy' Chuck Todd of NBC falls far short of the late Tim Russert", he tweeted on September 28, 2011. Neanderthals, sleepy eyes and all, we'll be back next week.
The Saturday rally wasn't the first time that Trump has referred to Todd as being "sleepy". They used to try to at least hide this.
