If you call Donald Trump, make sure everyone knows it. Don't say it was him that called you. He doesn't like that. MSNBC's Chuck Todd learned that the hard way.
Todd intro'd the segment on his show Monday morning saying Trump "wanted to respond" to polling data that suggests an endorsement from Trump would make voters in Iowa and New Hampshire less likely to vote for the candidate.
Trump got testy.
"You said, 'Donald Trump wanted to respond to a poll.' Well, I didn't want to respond. your people called my office about 40 times asking me to go on the show. It's dishonest what you're saying, Chuck. I wish you would just sort of say it like it is. I think you would do better. I think you would get better ratings if you did that. Is it a correct statement that I did not call you that you called me?"
Todd clarified, "We called you."
Trump also mentioned that he was "doing NBC a favor by doing this show." Classic.
