Trump's Water-Bottle Fumble Steals the Show During His Asia Trip Recap


The US president baffled viewers when he stopped an announcement on live TV to take two sips of water - a move similar to one that Trump mocked Senator Marco Rubio for during the 2016 campaign.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump frequently mocked then-rival Florida Sen.

"I wish when he was still looking for water, and he was, like, really dry, I wish at that moment, people from Puerto Rico would have come out and started throwing water bottles at his face", "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah joked.

Trump took to Twitter to say: "Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle - would have much less negative impact".

Thirsty Trump reached for the bottle of water and sipped.

Yes, but what makes the move even more freaky is the fact that back in 2013, the now-president called U.S. Senator Marco Rubio a "total choke artist" after the politician drank water during his State of the Union response. "When they put Marco on to refute President Obama's speech, do you remember that catastrophe?"

Between spewing out hateful messages on Twitter, derogatory comments about women, immigrants and Democratic voters, it's no surprise Donald Trump is in need of some water once in a while to wet his whistle. Trump splashed the water around before tossing the bottle behind him on stage. "That's ok", said Trump reaching down for a bottle of Fiji to the left of the podium.

"Similar, but needs work on his form".

And President Trump now knows this too, as we all witnessed during his Wednesday remarks. "But not bad for his 1st time", Rubio wrote.
