Trump has sharp words for ABC's Vega, CNN's Collins

See celebrity reactions to Donald Trump's viral moment.

President Trump provoked shock all over social media when he told ABC reporter Cecilia Vega that she "never thinks".

The White House on Tuesday amended a transcript to include an insult against ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega, Politico reports.

'Yeah, I would like to do it, ' Trump responded, seeming confused enough that a Republican congressman had to step in and clarify what Feinstein meant.

The Daily Beast reported that the White House whitewashed the part "I know you're not thinking" from the official transcript of the conferencereplacing it with "I know you're not thanking". While Vega was reaching for her microphone, Trump took a few shots at her.

The White House transcript initially suggested Trump said "thanking", not "thinking". On Sept. 27, the USA president told a female reporter to "go sit down" when she tried to ask him a question after fellow male colleagues called on Trump to take questions from female reporters too.

After verbally attacking those journalists as members of his Cabinet, staff and son-in-law Jared Ku shner stood behind him saying nothing, Trump then did a 180 and began to take questions about Kavanaugh and the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings continue with Christine Blasey Ford testimony
Kavanaugh arrived and sat before the committee to deliver his own testimony and submit to questioning. "I can't tell you. I want to see", the president said. "I have to watch tomorrow".

Vega used Twitter shortly afterwards to express her right to ask any question she desires, and cited the First Amendment. But the president also tried to strike a lighter note, joking about his own bad reputation in the press. Yes, I did.' But without the question, the transcript made that crucial moment in history almost impossible to understand. "You never do", the president said.

Vega then attempted to ask Trump about the FBI investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. More importantly, they seem to be more questions the GOP administration is refusing to answer.

The morning after releasing a transcript that misrepresented an uncomfortable exchange the president had with a female reporter on Monday, the White House sent out a corrected version.

He ignored her and moved on to another reporter's question.

"I'm not a drinker, I can honestly say I've never had a beer in my life", Trump said.

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