I cannot understand the following paragraph. Would you rewrite it?


At one point, a CNN reporter suggested the president could call on women reporters. “What does he mean by that,” Mr. Trump bristled. “What does he mean by that?”

Trump is rather well-known as not being very respectful of women, and in his press conference, he didn't call on the women reporters. He only called on the men. One of the reporters who was called on suggested he call on some of his female colleagues. Trump seemingly didn't understand the point of the reporter's request.

Lorikeet, Thank you.
I cannot imagine how American democracy has such a president.

Neither can I. It's been a terrible experience.
