"Again, I'll be with my kids this morning", Mnuchin responded, "and I'll be focused on them, on what the president is doing to protect the United States, its citizens..."

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". I know folks may be exhausted in the morning due to springing forward, so set those clocks and DVRs now before your eyes get too sleepy.

Speaking to Chuck Todd on Meet the Press yesterday, he said Trump's jibes must be seen in the "context of a campaign rally".

Todd acknowledged Saturday that Trump was trying to bait him-"make the establishment insane, make the media angry".

"He's getting more and more comfortable shooting from the hip and conducting his presidency by his gut", Todd said. Chuck Todd responded by saying that Trump's "vulgarities" create a "challenge for parents". "I sort of have the military rule in my house: You don't speak ill of the sitting president".

The Meet the Press host also told Politico that Trump used to call him up whine about Todd's coverage.

"I read one woman in the Wall Street Journal today", Trump said, apparently referring to piece by Journal columnist Peggy Noonan that was published Thursday. "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. "That is at a campaign rally". He said that while it's fair game for Trump to publicly criticize Todd, it's not acceptable for the president to call him a "son of a b**ch". "The president likes making amusing names".

'Again, I think you should be focused on what the policies are. "Yeah, they were hilarious", he said.

If it wasn't crystal clear already, President Donald Trump's roaring rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night underscored the fact that, more than a year into the job, Trump has no interest in leaving behind the vulgar insults or biting attacks on the free press that defined his 2016 Republican campaign.
