Dear Mr. VP,
Interestingly enough, Twitter (not a reliable news source, clearly, so yes, I vetted this) tells me that the modifier “Sleepy Eyes” is very likely an anti-Semitic dog whistle. Nazis had a list of physical characteristics they used to “identify Jews” and sleepy/”drooping” eyes were on that list.
Chuck Todd is definitely Jewish, and has also called out Trump in the past for not addressing the spike in anti-Semitic activity since his election.
What a “coincidence.”
