President Donald Trump risks of getting under fire again for his recent comment about a female reporter. What did he do this time?
Trump is under fire again
It’s great when a president is honest in his suggestions and always speaks his mind in any situation. You could actually say that about the current US President Donald Trump. However, agree that some of his remarks make Trump get into troubles.
During his press conference on Monday, Donald Trump and ABC’s reporter, Cecilia Vega, had one awkward moment.
On Trump’s comment “She’s shocked that I picked her,” Vega replied “I’m not. Thank you, Mr. President.”
But Donald obviously misheard Vega’s words as “I’m not thinking” and said in response:
That’s okay. I know you’re not thinking. You never do.

Reporter, preferably female, take him when he throws out an insult. Like today; he says "she never thinks". Response back: "Apparently neither do you". It is time to dispense with decorum.
