Trump complains 'Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd' is not following his preferred news agenda

President Trump lambasted NBC News' Chuck Todd in his morning tweets on Saturday, leveling allegations of fake news, snarking about Todd's appearance, and complaining that the journalist is not following his preferred news agenda.

Recent episodes of Meet the Press, Todd's primary gig at NBC, have addressed both the Russia story and Trump's surveillance allegations. Trump's tweets are likely inspired by Friday night's show, in which Todd talked Russia with former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
