How female reporters make Trump ‘melt down’ — or turn tail and run

President Donald Trump doesn’t like being challenged by any media figures, even if they are conservative white males like Fox News’ Chris Wallace or The Bulwark’s Bill Kristol. But female reporters, in particular, seem to rattle Trump, as journalist Jack Shafer argues in an op-ed published in Politico this week.

Shafer describes a pattern, explaining, “It starts with a reporter, usually a female reporter, asking President Donald Trump hard, tenacious questions at a news conference. Trump’s jaw seizes up, rattled and dumbfounded by the questions that he can’t or won’t answer. He abruptly ends the presser by saying, ‘Thank you very much’ and stalking out of the room.”“div-insticator-ad-1”);“div-insticator-ad-2”);Insticator.load(“em”,{id : “32c0e139-452b-4ddc-8956-dbc7b671f3bb”})’+’ipt>
