Trump insults female reporter: 'You're not thinking. You never do'

Donald Trump Told a Female Reporter, 'You're Not Thinking, You Never Do'

After Trump called on Cecilia Vega of ABC News, he poked fun at her and claimed she was in a "state of shock" because he called on her.

"She's shocked that I picked her". First, there was this freaky interaction with reporter Cecilia Vega.

Audio footage from the event indisputably captures what happened next: Trump, apparently mistaking Vega's comment for "I'm not thinking, Mr. President", counters, "That's okay". Vega hadn't yet asked a question, so Trump can't blame his derision on something she had just asked.

When Vega went ahead and asked a question on the on the scope of the FBI investigation into the president's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Trump stopped her.

"Don't do that", the President told CNN's Kaitlan Collins when she asked him about the judge. Unsurprisingly, Collins was passed over and another journalist was handed the mic. So, where the U.S. president accused the reporter of "not thinking", it now says "not thanking".

After Acosta, he called on NBC's Hallie Jackson who asked if he thought Kavanaugh's accusers were liars. Sure, that'd be quite a coincidence, touching up the transcript in such a way as to obscure Trump publicly belittling a woman reporter for no reason, but I can't definitely say whether this was an inadvertent error or a deliberate attempt at deception.

No, go ahead. Go ahead.
"You never do", he said. He proceeded to talk over her and cut her off before ultimately calling on another reporter while she was trying to get her question in.

"I think I'll save it for a book like everybody else", he said.

"You've been asking a question for 10 minutes".

Late-night host Seth Meyers also spoke about it during his show Monday night, saying, "I mean, how much of a sexist d- can you possibly be?"

Many critics of the president called the insult misogynistic, and noted some of the rhetorical attacks that he had made against other female reporters.

Later in the day, she seemingly acknowledged the awkward incident in a tweet.
