On Saturday morning, Donald Trump used his social media following to single out "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd. In response, the well-respected TV journalist fired back.

Todd on Trump

It's no secret that President Donald Trump doesn't see eye to eye with the majority of the mainstream media. Ever since the early days of his campaign, Trump has clashed various reporters and journalists, going as far as labeling them "terrible" and the "most dishonest people" he's ever met. The feud between both sides has since escalated since Election Day, and has picked up steam in the weeks following Trump being sworn into office.

As the media has focused on the growing scandal involving the White House and Russia, the former host of "The Apprentice" has done his best to create a conspiracy theory of his own by accusing Barack Obama of wiretapping his office inside Trump Tower. During an early-morning tweet on Saturday, Trump attacked the media for not giving his allegations credibility, while targeting Chuck Todd in the process. Todd decided to response to the president on April 1 with a tweet of his own.

As part of his Saturday tweet-storm Donald Trump gave Chuck Todd the nickname "sleepy eyes," while asking when he will "start talking about the Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL and stop with the Fake Trump/Russia story?" It didn't take long, but the host of MSNBC's "MTP Daily" took to his own Twitter account to fire back at the commander in chief.

"For those wondering, I slept well even tho I stayed up late watching the #msstate upset of UConn," Chuck Todd wrote on Twitter, while using the hashtag, "#cowbell." In conclusion, Todd added, "Don't feel sleepy at all though."

The war of words between Donald Trump and the media has reached a fever pitch, with the White House going as far as banning many respected news outlets from a press briefing just last month. As Trump continues to take jabs at reporters and news outlets on social media, it doesn't appear like both sides will be able to patch up their differences at any point in the near future.
