Chuck Todd responds to Trump's 'son of a bitch' slam

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin

In one of the more profane moments of his speech, the president called out NBC News political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd by name as part of a larger attack against the media for its coverage of his presidency.

"The president of the United States in the past has been a beacon of freedom of the press", Todd told Mnuchin. "And that's what we should be focused on, a week of policies".

Despite President Donald Trump's public statements appearing to oppose sanctions against Russian Federation, the steps ordered by Congress will be imposed in coming weeks, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Tuesday. "That is at a campaign rally". He accused all of Todd's Trump stories of being "negative" and containing a "false accusation or implication".

"You'd be so bored", the president said as he brushed off criticism that he should change his ways. And again, I think you're trying to take this out of perspective and implying something I'm not saying'. "And I'll be focusing them on what the president is doing to protect the United States, it's citizens".

"I'll be with my kids this morning", Mnuchin noted.

"So he's not a moral, don't worry about his values?" "It's undignified, to be punching down by name a Sunday show host with that kind of vulgarity you had to bleep, I actually played it on my air, I didn't bleep it", Kurtz said.

I asked Todd in our interview Friday why he thought the president had such an obsession with him.

"Chuck, you know I've been with the president in campaigns", Mnuchin said.

"What are you supposed to say to kids?" "I think this last week, these last 10 days of him is the presidency he's dreamed of".

"He's using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally, and obviously there were a lot of amusing moments on that rally", he said.

Mnuchin concluded his interview by saying "obviously there were a lot of amusing moments [at] that rally" - a comment which left Todd entirely unimpressed.

"Yeah", Todd noted, "they were hilarious".

Trump supporter Jack Bailey appeared to be enjoying the president's comment against Todd.
