“Well, I would probably use different language myself," DeVos told NBC “Today” show host Savannah Guthrie about Trump using “a dirty word” to refer to the network's Chuck Todd.
"And I think we all have an opportunity and responsibility to be examples to our kids,” she added.
DeVos said the example set for children expands to “the president as well.”
Her comments come after Trump called Todd a “sleeping son of a bitch” during an event for Republican congressional candidate Rick Saccone on Saturday.
Trump has repeatedly referred to Todd, who has helmed “Meet the Press” since 2014, as “sleepy eyes.”
