Did Trump say ‘thanking’ or ‘thinking’ to this reporter?

Monday delivered yet another pure Trumpian performance

There was a brief pause while the reporter, ABC's Cecilia Vega, stood up to ask her question. "A news conference means you get to ask whatever question you want to ask #FirstAmendment", she wrote. He mocked her for being in "a state of shock" that he called on her. "She's, like, in a state of shock", he added.

Vega: "I'm not. Thank you, Mr. President".

An official transcript distributed on Monday evening showed the President telling a female senior correspondent she wasn't "thanking" when he called on her, an odd construction that bore little resemblance to what the President is heard on video saying.

Ouch. And that was just the warm up.

President Trump again defended his Supreme Court nominee Monday, and he expressed confidence that Brett Kavanaugh would be confirmed to the court after the new FBI investigation is complete. "Don't do that", he said. He said he'd be fine answering the question but wanted to focus on trade first, even though that is 100% not how news conferences work. Trump said. "I don't mind answering the question".

That comment about "not thinking" set off a firestorm of reactions on Twitter, with many accusing the president of acting disrespectfully to a professional woman. "Thank you, Mr. President".

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

During the Washington, D.C. event, Trump spoke to several female reporters in a manner that drew criticism online. Can you imagine if I had?

The reporter, surprised by the president's response, then said, "I'm sorry?"

Trump also told reporters that he had seen many senators in "very bad" circumstances, hinting that he'd seen many of them seriously drunk.

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

Vega later tweeted about the president's attempts to push her question.

In the end, Vega was not even allowed to finish asking her question because Trump interrupted her by saying it was unrelated to the global trade agreement, so he would be answering questions about the Kavanaugh inquiry later. "You know what? You've had enough".
