Todd recalled that Trump pledged "to do things differently, disrupt Washington, make the establishment insane, make the media angry" - which is 'why he went after his favorite targets in the media'. "He's using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally and obviously there were a lot of amusing moments on, on, on that rally", Mnuchin responded, prompting Todd to reply: "Yeah, they were hilarious".
Todd joked about the reference on Twitter, using it to remind viewers to tune in Sunday and turn their clocks ahead.
"Meet the Press, a show now headed by sleepy-eyes Chuck Todd", he told the crowd. "I sort of have the military rule in my house: You don't speak ill of the sitting president".
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. "You know he likes to put names on people. He did that through the entire presidential election", Mnuchin said. On the show, Todd welcomed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and asked him for his thoughts on Trump's comments. "But again, don't take these campaign rallies and focus them on that's what it is". Todd was incredulous: "So you're saying that's acceptable behavior for the rest of the administration too, or it's just unique to him?"
"So, should we stop covering the campaign rallies?" "And the president likes making amusing names", he added, in reference to the president referring to Maxine Waters as "a very low-IQ individual".
"I think you should be focused on the policies", he continued. "When he uses vulgarity to talk about individuals, what are they supposed to tell their kids?"
In his NBC4 interview, Todd said Trump's behavior was par for the course.
