Apparently Donald Trump enjoyed Texas Sen.Ted Cruz's appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday morning, tweeting out excerpts of the Texas Republican's defense of him -- but he skipped over the part where the host confronted Cruz a with Trump's ugly attacks on him.

Trump, who has dialed back his original commentary on Twitter, choosing to retweet others and block quote others defending him, cherry-picked the best Cruz had to offer, avoiding the highlight of the interview.

Along the way, Trump did take a shot at Todd, calling him "Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd."
