Mnuchin: Media Should Worry Less About Trump Rally Comments

Mnuchin: Media Should Worry Less About Trump Rally Comments

"And I'll be focusing them on what the president is doing to protect the United States, it's citizens". "When he uses vulgarity to talk about individuals, what are they supposed to tell their kids?"

President Trump reserved special wrath for NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd at a Pennsylvania campaign rally for congressional candidate Rick Saccone on Saturday night, referring to him as a "sleeping son of a b--h".

"The booing is getting stronger by the day whenever he goes out there and whips up like it's a Mussolini rally", he said.

"You'd be so bored", Trump said as he brushed off criticism that he should change his ways.

Trump has been using the odd "sleepy eyes" insult since at least 2012, when he tweeted, "It's great that sleepy eyes @chucktodd gets no traction". "This is exactly the presidency he said he was going to have, that he was going to do things differently, disrupt Washington, make the establishment insane, make the media angry", he said. He called the host of NBC's "Meet the Press" a "sleeping son of a b**ch". No, I don't. I understand Todd's point about Trump debasing the presidency, although I think commentary we sometimes hear that he's some kind of fascist who intends to abolish the First Amendment is silly.

"Chuck, you know I've been with the president in campaigns", Mnuchin said. He did that throughout the entire presidential election.

Trump, who will be running for the Oval Office in 2020, also announced the slogan of his campaign during the rally.

I asked Todd in our interview Friday why he thought the president had such an obsession with him. "That is at a campaign rally". "He is using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally. I think you should be focused on the policies", he continued. "Obviously, there were a lot of amusing moments at that rally".

"Yeah, they were hilarious", the host quipped sarcastically. "And the president likes making amusing names", he added, in reference to the president referring to Maxine Waters as "a very low-IQ individual".
