In March of that yr, Trump known as the Meet the Press anchor a “sleeping son of a bitch” at a rally. Showing on Washington D.C.’s native NBC 4 on March 11, 2018, Todd stood on precept, saying “I convey my youngsters as much as respect the workplace of the president.” He additionally provided the unlikely declare that, “in my home,” one “doesn’t converse sick of the sitting president.”
