Trump Undermines Female Reporters When Asked About Brett Kavanaugh Case

Monday delivered yet another pure Trumpian performance

After verbally attacking those journalists as members of his Cabinet, staff and son-in-law Jared Ku shner stood behind him saying nothing, Trump then did a 180 and began to take questions about Kavanaugh and the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

He called on Cecilia Vega, a White House reporter for ABC News, and baselessly insinuated she was "shocked" that he had tapped her. "She's shocked that I picked her".

As Vega composed herself she apologetically said, "I'm not thinking Mr. President".

"That's OK, I know you're not thinking, you never do".

Elon Musk Settles With SEC, Quits As Tesla Chairman
Former US Vice President Al Gore could be a good fit to replace Elon Musk as chairman, according to one longtime tech analyst. Tesla in recent years has become one of the most valuable American vehicle maker, with its stock worth more than $50 billion.

President Trump: "That's okay".

"We're going to do DACA and then we can start immediately on the phase two, which would be comprehensive", Trump added.

This isn't the first tense exchange between Vega and the President.

He appeared to mishear Vega as she answered him, "I'm not".

United States president cheers new USMCA trade deal, heralds end of NAFTA era
Canada is by far the No. 1 destination for US exports, and the USA market accounts for 75 percent of what Canada sells overseas . Canada's ambassador to Washington says the USA and Canada have made a lot of progress in free trade talks but there is no deal.

But Trump's display of mockery and disrespect towards women reporters, especially has gotten even worse since September, when multiple women, including Christine Blasey Ford, came forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Kavanaugh. In the summer of 2017, he attacked MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski by alleging that she had a "facelift". Similarly to Vega, Collins was reproached with the president wagging his finger at her saying her actions were "not nice". He has called NBC News's Katy Tur "little Katy" and New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd "crazy". And then things went off the rails as Trump continued to taunt her.

Vega asked a question on the on the scope of the FBI investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which Trump dismissed as irrelevant to the new trade deal that prompted the presser. But as she, and many others pointed out, a press conference means reporters get to ask whatever they want.

Trump again lashed out at the media over their coverage of Kavanaugh and also referenced a Democratic senator in freakish threat: "I've seen that person in very, very bad situations, somewhat compromising". "You've had enough. You've really had enough". Trump also talked about his own teetotalling ways.

During the Washington, D.C. event, Trump spoke to several female reporters in a manner that drew criticism online.
