President Donald Trump took a detour during a speech he gave on Saturday, going after “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd with colorful language.
“He’s a sleeping son of a bitch, I’ll tell you,” Trump said during a speech in Moon Township, Pa.
Trump referenced Todd while discussing his own appearance on “Meet the Press” in 1999. On the show, Trump called for an aggressive policy towards North Korea. He argued that former President Bill Clinton was being too soft on the totalitarian regime, which went on to obtain nuclear weapons.
“It’s 1999. I’m on ‘Meet the Press,’ a show now hosted by Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd,” said Trump, referring to the nickname he coined for Todd in 2017.
The Republican paused, then called the news anchor a “sleeping son of a bitch.”
