Water-shed moment: Trump drinks crow

Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump went on television on Wednesday to recap his just-completed trip overseas, but it was his pause to refresh that ended up making news.

"They don't have water", Trump said.

Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle-would have much less negative impact.

Trump took another sip from the water bottle before ending his speech.

Colbert showed the audience a clip of Trump first unable to locate water then, after finally locating water, awkwardly unscrewing the bottle cap on national television. Trump, of course, was referring to Rubio's infamous water break during his televised response to President Obama's 2013 State of the Union Address.

Marco Rubio is being crucified by the media for drinking water during speech!

The awkwardness of the moment is not only due to Trump's drinking technique, but mostly to its similarity to another remarkable water bottle sip a few years ago by Sen.

However, the aspect that "intrigued" the American people, even more, was the way he chose to take a sip of water.

"Help me, I need water".

Trump pulled a bottle of water out of his pocket and exclaimed, "It's Marco!" The senator joked after the president's speech that Trump needs to work on his form. "Has to be done in one single motion and eyes should never leave the camera".

Nearly every single day from the Trump era, the "theory" of how such a person has managed to lead the world's most powerful country it's being strengthened by the president's behavior. "But not bad for his 1st time", Rubio tweeted.
