After the president's jab, Vega took to Twitter to say she was going to keep doing her job.
Trump interrupted Jiang as well and when she pointed that fact out, he told her to sit down. "You never do", he said.
"You didn't answer my question, Mr. President", Collins said when he was done.
The result: Again, he managed to avoid answering hard questions.
Several months earlier, during Anthony Scaramucci's not-quite-two-week stint as White House communications director, he appeared in the press briefing room to gush about how impressed he was with Trump's limitless abilities, and marveled at the president's ability to sink "three-foot putts" while playing golf.
