What a douchenozzle!

After calling on ABC reporter Cecilia Vega, who paused as she stood up to ask her question, Trump decided to mock the female reporter.
“She’s shocked that I picked on her. She’s, like, in a state of shock,” he said, earning laughs from the crowd.
“I’m not, thank you, Mr. President,” the White House reporter responded.
Trump, seemingly misunderstanding the female reporter, hit back again—this time directly insulting her intelligence.
“That’s ok, I know you’re not thinking. You never do,” the president said.
Shocked by the comment, Vega said, “I’m sorry?” while he dismissively told her to “Go ahead.”
Is it any wonder really that Trump chose a guy like Brett Kavanaugh to fill this empty Supreme Court position?
Clearly, they have similar views of women.
Speaking of Brett Kavanaugh, Trump was asked about him as well and got a little snippy suggesting that he might have some dirt on at least one of the Democratic Senators asking the hard questions.
Courtesy of Deadline:
“I happen to know some United States senators, one who is on the other side, who’s pretty aggressive. I’ve seen that person in very bad situations. Okay?,” Trump teased.
“I’ve seen that person in very bad situations. Somewhat compromising, Trump said. “And I think it’s very unfair to bring up things like this,” he complained.
Asked by a reporter to name the senator, Trump shot back, “I think I’ll save it for a book, like everybody else. I’m not giving it to you.”
If Trump wants to go down this line, he might want to be careful because I think a number of Republican Senators may have their own issues with the drink.
However, it should be pointed out that Brett Kavanaugh is not being attacked for drinking either in high school or even now.
He is being called out for clearly lying about it, and painting himself as a saint who would never ever attempt to assault a girl while inebriated.
So Trump’s attempts at intimidation are extremely bizarre and in no way presidential.
