Trump just launched a vile, unprovoked insult at NBC’s Chuck Todd in rally speech (WATCH)

- Maret 10, 2018

At a campaign rally in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, where he is stumping for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone, Trump spent the large majority of the time bouncing between self-congratulatory praise, defending his own missteps in office, and spewing unscripted – and misguided – remarks.

One such remark, which Sarah Huckabee Sanders will inevitably need to defend tomorrow, was the president referring to NBC host Chuck Todd as a “sleeping son of a bitch.”

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

The verbal attack came in response to what Trump perceives as critical media coverage of his upcoming North Korea meeting.

Today’s desperate pandering, rife with juvenile epithets, comes amid a tightening special election race in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District. Whereas Trump won this district by a 20-point margin in 2016, polls have shown Democrat Conor Lamb leading his Republican counterpart in what may be the latest in a string of humiliating lost seats for the GOP leading up to midterms.

Perhaps Trump should stop lobbing the same sophomoric attacks that have turned him into the least popular president in modern American history, and instead make any attempt whatsoever at acting like the full-grown president of the United States.
