Presidential hopeful Donald Trump and NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd have something in common — they hate each other.
On Sunday night, Trump came out swinging after watching (or hearing about) the “Meet the Press” segment on him on the Sunday morning political talk show in which Todd presented what the candidate said “then” and what he is saying “now.” This was followed up by a “when does it implode” discussion with the panel.
For instance: take Hillary Clinton.
Trump: “Hilary Clinton I think is a terrific woman.”
And now? “I think Hillary would be a terrible president.”
On Sunday night, Trump bludgeoned Todd with his now infamous nickname for him and thoughts on the show’s ratings.
“Sleep eyes @ChuckTodd is killing Meet The Press. Isn’t he pathetic? Love watching him fail!,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “I hear that sleepy eyes @chucktodd will be fired like a dog from ratings starved Meet The Press? I can’t imagine what is taking so long!”
There is no love lost between these two men.
Trump has previously said that he could take Todd’s place as host of the program, while calling him a “dummy” and a “moron.”
Todd dinged Trump in late June after the Charleston church murders. Todd marveled that anyone could even take the topic of Trump seriously.
