In case you missed it, Donald Trump had a major meltdown at a Pennsylvania rally last night. He was supposed to be supporting a GOP congressional candidate, but instead went completely off script and made the entire thing about him.
Not only did Trump attack many of the people who make him feel insecure (including former President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Senator Elizabeth Warren), but he lashed out at the media and cursed out one reporter in particular.
After bragging about his decision to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Trump decided to trash the media for criticizing the White House’s dysfunctional planning around the event. Calling out CNN and MSNBC in particular, Trump zeroed in on “Meet The Press” MSNBC reporter Chuck Todd, reigniting an old insult.
As Trump referenced an old interview he had done about North Korea on “Meet The Press” in 1999, Trump trashed the show’s current host and brought back “sleepy-eyes”, Trump’s old nickname for Todd — while cursing out the reporter in front of his audience. Trump yelled (see the video here):
“Meet the Press, a show now headed by sleepy-eyes Chuck Todd. He is a sleepy son of a bitch, I’ll tell you.”
Americans all over the country were horrified by the sh*tshow unfolding right before their eyes, as the President of the United States became totally unhinged. The only thing hilarious about the entire thing is Todd’s response, which came almost immediately after Trump’s tantrum.
Referencing Trump’s insult, Todd responded on Twitter:
“Don’t miss @MeetThePress tomorrow! I know folks may be tired in the morning due to springing forward, so set those clocks and DVRs now before your eyes get too sleepy.”
We can’t think of a better way to acknowledge how foolish Trump is. Good on Chuck for putting this bully in his place!
