Earlier today, Donald Trump was fielding questions from reporters Trump is standing by what looks like a row of golf carts, which … well, he probably is.
Trump: We’re building a military so strong, nobody’s gonna mess with us; but you know what? I never want to have to use it.
Reporter: Can you tell us about the verification process—
It is at this point that others try to ask questions, specifically CBS News’s Weijia Jiang, who tries to break through the softball question-fest to ask Trump how and why he has declared the nuclear threat from North Korea “over.” Trump puts his hand up in her face, saying “Quiet!” He turns to someone else and exclaims:
Trump: She’s so obnoxious.
He proceeds to put his hand back in her face so he can talk about how he’s creating an amazing “verification” process that’s going to make other verification processes seem like small verification processes; or whatever dumb lie is about to come out of his mouth.

You can hear Trump calling a female reporter off-screen “obnoxious” here:
He points to someone.
“Quiet," he says.
[lots of reporter cross-talk]
