WATCH: Donald Trump Tells Cecilia Vega ‘I Know You’re Not Thinking, You Never Do’

President Donald Trump frequently insults women and loves to insult the press. So during a press conference Monday, he decided to kill two birds with one stone.

When ABC News White House correspondent Cecilia Vega asked Trump for clarification on the scope of the FBI’s investigation into the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Trump hurled an insult right at her, enough under his breath that she couldn’t hear him, but audible for anyone listening at home.

First, Trump claimed that Vega was in a “state of shock” that he called on her. When Vega said, “I’m not, thank you,” Trump interrupted with:

“I know you’re not thinking. You never do.”

He then proceeded to dismiss her question, insisting that questions be on the topic of trade, but it was the random insult that had people on Twitter fuming.

Some insisted that Vega was in the wrong for asking the question instead of one regarding trade.

Then Vega herself clarified that that was not the case.

The president eventually responded reluctantly to Vega’s question.

It’s unsurprising that, even in a trade press conference, the Kavanaugh nomination would get the bulk of the attention.
