WH Removes Trump’s Insult To Reporter From Official Press Conference Transcript

The White House changed President Trump's remark from "I know you're not thinking" to "I know you're not thanking".

During a press conference Monday, President Donald Trump insulted the intelligence of ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega, saying she “never” thinks — but you wouldn’t know it by the White House transcript.

According to The Daily Beast, one key word was changed to alter the entire meaning of Trump’s statement:

> While the president told ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega, “I know you’re not thinking. You never do,” the White House transcript reads, “I know you’re not thanking. You never do.”

Vega did thank Trump for calling on her, The Daily Beast notes, but it was clear that the president misunderstood what she said before he responded.

After his remark, Vega replied with, “I’m sorry?” before Trump offered a patronizing, “No, go ahead. Go ahead.”

Watch the exchange above.
