Trump has sharp words for ABC's Vega, CNN's Collins

President Donald Trump points to a member of the media as he speaks during a news conference on trade between the United States Canada and Mexico

This was Trump's second such run-in with a female reporter.

"You never do." While Vega did thank the president for calling on her to ask a question before Trump made the remark, his comment prompted her to ask "I'm sorry?" before the president dismissed her. While she waited for a microphone to be passed, Trump said, "She's shocked that I picked her".

Trump, apparently mishearing "thank you" as "thinking", responded with a seemingly unprovoked jab: "I know you're not thinking".

Trump insults reporter Cecilia Vega: "You're not thinking".

According to the Daily Beast, the White House attempted to remedy the president's blunder by changing a word in the official transcript, which reads, "I know you're not thanking".

There was, for example, the incomplete transcript from Trump's infamous press conference in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump went on to discuss how he had avoided alcohol. Can you imagine if I had?

In a highly professional manner Vega continued with her question on the controversial nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the US Supreme Court.

"Let's do that later", he said, before moving on to another reporter. But as she, and many others pointed out, a press conference means reporters get to ask whatever they want.

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

"How much of a sexist dick can you possibly be?"

Trump interrupted Jiang as well and when she pointed that fact out, he told her to sit down.

Vega referred obliquely to the exchange on her Twitter account later.

All in all, Trump's conduct with women reporters was utterly disrespectful.

Kavanaugh has faced allegations of sexual misconduct by three women, Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick. Trump at one point said he'd be open to having the Federal Bureau of Investigation question the third accuser, Julie Swetnick, but also questioned her credibility. "She's, like, in a state of shock", he said, earning laughs from the crowd. "Do you have a question on trade?" Vega hadn't yet asked a question, so Trump can't blame his derision on something she had just asked.
