Donald Trump just attacked NBC News’ Chuck Todd in an angry tweet, wondering why the “sleepy-eyed” host didn’t give more air time to his claims that the previous administration wiretapped his headquarters.
When will Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd and @NBCNews start talking about the Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL and stop with the Fake Trump/Russia story?

Trump’s Twitter rant came a day after Todd warned on MSNBC that Trump could be on the verge of a ‘lame duck’ presidency due to the current investigation over his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia.
Todd’s “lame duck” quote was immediately picked up by conservative websites such as Breitbart news, where it was making headlines Saturday morning when Trump published his tweet.
Chuck Todd did respond, saying, “For those wondering, I slept well even tho I stayed up late watching the #msstate upset of UConn. #cowbell. Don’t feel sleepy at all though,” Todd tweeted.
