I Know You’re Not Thinking, You Never Do

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Wheeling, WV, Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018.

The White House on Tuesday amended a transcript to include an insult against ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega, Politico reports. "She's like in a state of shock".

Vega quickly responded by saying "No, I'm not".

Trump, apparently, misheard "thank you" as "thinking", and without confirming what Vega had said, he, entirely unprovoked, took it up as an opportunity to mock her. He's basically saying, 'If you think I'm an assh*le now, imagine if I had a few beers!

At this remark, a surprised gasp rose from the audience, and Vega looked stunned: "I'm sorry?" she said. However, the new deal was overshadowed by Trump's comment aimed toward a female reporter after opening the floor to questions.

Vega used Twitter shortly afterwards to express her right to ask any question she desires, and cited the First Amendment. Collins was also asking a question about Kavanaugh's sexual assault allegations. Do you have a question on trade? "You never do", the president said.

He refused to let Vega ask a question about the other big news of the day: the FBI investigation into his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

"What does that have to do with trade?"The US President said".

Trump also told reporters that he had seen many senators in "very bad" circumstances, hinting that he'd seen many of them seriously drunk. But that's not what the official White House transcript shows.

"I wouldn't mind that at all", Trump said. "You never do", the president fired back.

At another point in the press conference, the President broadly attacked the media, saying: "I think the press has treated me unbelievably unfairly".

Trump said, "You've had enough", and moved on to someone else.

The White House has come under fire for editing the transcript of his comments to say "I know you're not thanking" instead of "thinking".

Trump again lashed out at the media over their coverage of Kavanaugh and also referenced a Democratic senator in weird threat: "I've seen that person in very, very bad situations, somewhat compromising". Can you imagine if I had, what a mess I'd be?
