"If I came like a stiff, you guys wouldn't be here tonight". But in person, his patience seemed to have frayed.

"You should obviously carry them", Mnuchin said.

"I'll be with my kids this morning, 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", Mnuchin replied.

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". "I sort of have the military rule in my house: You don't speak ill of the sitting president". Still, "it creates a challenge to all parents when he uses vulgarities like that", he said. Referring to "Meet the Press", Trump advised it was now headed by "sleepy eyes Chuck Todd", a "sleeping son of a bitch". "And the president likes making amusing names". He did that throughout the entire presidential election.

Sunday morning, he put Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on the spot about Trump's comments. "So these are campaign rally issues". "That is at a campaign rally".

During a raucous campaign-style rally Saturday evening for a Republican congressional candidate, Trump told the fired-up crowd he had always been tough on North Korea and raised an interview he did on "Meet the Press" in 1999 as proof while taunting the show's current host. "I don't know why you are putting these words in what I'm trying to say".

He called an African-American congresswoman from California a "very low-IQ individual" and bashed the moderator of NBC's "Meet the Press" as a "sleeping son of a bitch".

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

Mnuchin dismissed Trump's personal attacks, instead telling Todd that the press should focus on covering the administration's policies.

"He's using these vulgarities in the context of a campaign rally, and obviously there were a lot of amusing moments on that rally", he said.
