Trump to woman reporter: "She's shocked I picked her, she's in a state of shock”
Reporter: “I'm not, thank you Mr. President”
Trump: "I know you're not thinking, you never do”
Reporter: "I'm sorry?"
Trump: "Go ahead"
This is institutionalized misogyny.

H/t @atrupar - follow him for best video highlights every day.
Please note the mostly (white) men standing behind the President in the Rose Garden who laugh and smirk as he insults the women who are trying to do their jobs.
Thank you Cecilia Vega (@CeciliaVega) and Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) - who withstood today’s hostile work environment in the Rose Garden - and our gratitude to reporters like April Ryan (@AprilDRyan) who have dealt with this indignity every day for two years.
