Donald Trump is fond of attacking people in the media who have supposedly wronged him, and today was Chuck Todd‘s turn.
He started out the day by tweeting “Sleepy Eyes” at him:
Sleepy eyes Chuck Todd, a man with so little touch for politics, is at it again.He could not have watched my standing ovation speech in N.C.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 6, 2016
Now, it’s not really clear why Todd gets the “Sleepy Eyes” nickname. Maybe Trump just watches too much Meet the Press and thinks Todd looks sleepy in the mornings?
Whatever the case, it carried over into his rally tonight, where Trump repeatedly trashed “sleepy eyes” Todd, said he was “disloyal” for daring to criticize him, and later saying he doesn’t even want to talk about him––after spending time talking about him.
Todd responded on Twitter:
I've been sleeping, what I miss?
