The White House keeps editing its transcripts in curious ways

Monday delivered yet another pure Trumpian performance

Monday delivered yet another pure Trumpian

Earlier today, President Donald Trump spoke at a press conference at the White House's Rose Garden.

One the reporters on the receiving end of Trump's ridicule was Cecilia Vega of ABC. "She's in a state a shock".

"No, I'm not. Thank you, Mr President", Ms Vega responded.

Trump replied: "That's okay, I know you're not thinking, you never do", as Vega asked: "I'm sorry?"

Ouch. And that was just the warm up.

In another tense interaction during the press conference, Trump shouted down CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins as she attempted to ask a further question about Kavanaugh. "Don't do that", he said. "That's not nice. Do you have a question on trade?"

Colorado Rockies to meet Chicago Cubs in NL Wild Card Game
The Brewers' victory averaged a 13.5 household rating in the Milwaukee area, or nearly 115,000 southeastern Wisconsin TV homes. The stakes couldn't have been higher for the Cubs and the Brewers as they battled it out for the NL Central title on Monday.

"You didn't answer my question, Mr. President", Collins said when he was done. "You never do", the president muttered.

Trump called on Vega at the start of the Rose Garden event on trade and appeared to mock her. He later returned to her for a question on Kavanaugh. However, the new deal was overshadowed by Trump's comment aimed toward a female reporter after opening the floor to questions. Sure, that'd be quite a coincidence, touching up the transcript in such a way as to obscure Trump publicly belittling a woman reporter for no reason, but I can't definitely say whether this was an inadvertent error or a deliberate attempt at deception.

Following the conference, Vega posted a tweet stating that any question can be asked at press conferences but did not comment on Trump's "You never do" remark.

Unless the Steelers are interested in a straight swap for Ezekiel Ansah, Detroit will not be answering the Le'Veon Bell chime. Bell turned down a $70-million offer from Pittsburgh over the summer because it only contained $17 million in guarantees.

Trump also told reporters that he had seen many senators in "very bad" circumstances, hinting that he'd seen many of them seriously drunk. "Do you have a question on trade?" Government broadcast producers had left the reporter's microphone muted while a Russian-to-English translator delivered Putin's answer to his previous question.

He said then-Fox News host Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever". "You know what? You've had enough".

"I think I'll save it for a book like everybody else", he said.
