On Saturday, President Donald Trump ripped NBC News’ “Meet the Press ” host Chuck Todd at a campaign-style rally in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, calling him a “sleeping son of a b****.”
Trump made the comment while referencing his appearance on “Meet the Press” in 1999, during which he discussed North Korea, the Washington Examiner reported.
“You ever see the story? Where it’s 1999. I’m on ‘Meet the Press,’ a show now headed by sleepy eyes Chuck Todd. He’s a sleeping son of a b****, I’ll tell you,” Trump said to an ecstatic crowd. “And they showed it this morning, 1999, and I’m talking about North Korea, ‘You gotta take them out now.’”

Todd responded to Trump’s remarks by reminding people to set their clocks for Daylight Savings Time.
Todd tweeted: “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.”
