On Sunday morning, Todd pressed Kennedy on his repeated claim that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 presidential election, insisting that the only person "selling this argument" outside the United States is Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump, who famously asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into alleged meddling by Ukraine over the summer, thanked Kennedy and slammed the "sleepy eyes" NBC anchor.
"Thank you to Great Republican @SenJohnKennedy for the job he did in representing both the Republican Party and myself against Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd on Meet the Depressed!" Trump tweeted.
The president was on the warpath on Twitter throughout the day Monday, slamming former FBI lawyer Lisa Page after she spoke out to the media for the first time since her text messages with her lover, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, were publicized. Trump also hit out at "Mini Mike" Bloomberg for his news outlet's decision not to investigate him or his 2020 Democratic rivals.
