GRABBING HIMSELF BY THE DONALD:

Trump's Putin fallout: Inside the White House's tumultuous week of walk-backs (Ashley Parker, Philip Rucker, Josh Dawsey and Carol D. Leonnig, July 21, 2018, Washington Post)

Trump further grumbled about the tough question he was asked by Jonathan Lemire, an Associated Press correspondent, wondering why that reporter had been called on rather than someone who might have asked an easier question.

Lemire asked whether Trump would denounce Russia's election interference to Putin's face, "with the whole world watching," and the president demurred. Aides tried to explain to Trump that nearly any journalist would have asked a similarly pointed question in that moment.

But, as one White House official said, "If you don't like the answer, you don't like the question."
