"I bring my kids up to respect the office of the presidency and the president". Referring to "Meet the Press", Trump advised it was now headed by "sleepy eyes Chuck Todd", a "sleeping son of a bitch".

Mnuchin reacted by saying he would be with his children that morning, adding: 'And I'll be focused on them, on what the president is doing to protect the United States, its citizens, and more importantly, its economy'.

Flake, who has hinted he might challenge Trump in 2020, said: "We had a record number of journalists being jailed overseas, some on false news charges, echoing the phrases that he uses". "He is a sleepy son of a bitch, I'll tell you".

Trump has been using the odd "sleepy eyes" insult since at least 2012, when he tweeted, "It's great that sleepy eyes @chucktodd gets no traction". "This is exactly the presidency he said he was going to have, that he was going to do things differently, disrupt Washington, make the establishment insane, make the media angry", he said.

"For a long time, he used to call me up and be upset because I wasn't taking the idea of him running for president seriously in 2011", Todd said. "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.

Todd continued to lecture about role models, but Mnuchin said his focus is on policy, though he did note that "there were a lot of amusing moments on that rally".

"Uh, again, I think you should be focused on what the policies are", Mnuchin dismissed the president's words.

"Yeah, they were hilarious", the butt of one such moment quipped sarcastically.
