"A news conference means you get to ask whatever question you want to ask #FirstAmendment", she wrote. She was called upon by Trump to pose a question with Trump immediately commenting, "She's shocked that I picked her. Like in a state of shock", he said.

"You know what? You've really had enough", Trump said. But Trump ignored her, telling one of his staffers to pass the microphone to another reporter.

"You've been asking a question for 10 minutes. She's, like, in a state of shock", he said, earning laughs from the crowd.
