Finally I watched it happen during a press briefing, a display of Strength and Courage by two women reporters.
"Sir, why are you saying that to me specifically?" Weijia Jiang, a White House correspondent for CBS News asked President Trump.
Trump attempted to move on by calling on Kaitlan Collins, a White House correspondent for CNN, but Kaitlin Collins deferred her questioning to allow President Trump to address Jiang's follow-up question.
"That's not a nasty question," Jiang said. "Why does it matter?"
Trump then looked again to take a question from another reporter.
Collins then approached the microphone. "I have two questions," she said.
"No, it's OK," Trump replied to Collins.
"But you pointed to me," Collins said. "I have two questions, Mr. President. You called on me."
"I did," Trump said. "And you didn't respond, and now I'm calling on the young lady in the back."
"I just wanted to let my colleague finish," Collins explained. "But can I ask you a question?"
Trump then ended the press conference abruptly.
"Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much," he said before leaving the Rose Garden.
That revealed President Donald Trump at his most basic, spoiled, childish self, in refusing to answer the question ... Game over; I'm taking my ball and going home.
But what is obvious yet seldom pointed out to the public DURING these press briefings is that the president seldom answers ANY question.
And when he does it's such a smorgasbord of nonsensical ingredients that by the time his RoboSpeaking baking segment ends we are seasoned, desensitized, and lulled into disinterest for the Truth. From there, eager for relief, we gladly go on to the next question, which we hope will produced greater results. And so does he.
Yes, "Next Question!" That's his other well placed strategic form of non answer.
