Donald Trump’s problem with the media became much more apparent after his meeting in the Rose Garden to discuss his financial deal with Canada. Strangely, he referred to the press as “Democrats.” POTUS showed how much he disliked intelligent women, when he took his corrosive anger out on a female ABC News reporter.

Then, the president attacked another woman reporter:
‘Trump shouts down @kaitlancollins as she tries to ask him a question about Kavanaugh!!! She asks it anyway. He won’t answer.’

Washington correspondent for The Toronto Times, Daniel Dale, tweeted that Trump wanted to avoid Kavanaugh questions. The president even ordered White House officials to take the mike from one such reporter:
‘Told that reporters now want to ask about Kavanaugh, since he’s taken many questions on trade, Trump says, “Don’t do that. Don’t do that. Excuse me? Do you have a question on trade. Don’t do that. That’s not nice.”…Trump has the microphone taken away from a reporter who tried to ask him about Kavanaugh.’
After he insulted Cecilia Vega’s intelligence, he attacked her for daring to ask a question. Yet, she was just doing her job.
Vega was surprised that Trump called upon her. Then, the commander-in-chief mocked her:
‘She’s shocked that I picked her. Like in a state of shock.’
After she replied that was not what was going through her mind, Trump replied:
‘That’s okay, I know you’re not thinking. You never do.’
Next, the man in the Oval Office shouted down another female reporter, Kaitlan Collins of CNN when she tried to ask about Kavanaugh.
