US President Donald Trump had his own "bizarre" water bottle moment during his speech recapping his recent "tremendously successful" Asia trip and Twitter couldn't stop poking fun at him. Just a little over 10 minutes into his speech at the White House, Trump abruptly paused to look under the presidential lectern for a bottle of water.
"They don't have water. That's OK," the president said before reporters pointed to a small table on the other side of the lectern. He then turned to the side, picked up a small bottle of Fiji water with both hands and took a sip before continuing his speech.
He again stopped to take a second swig just minutes later.
The water bottle moment echoed back to Florida Senator Marco Rubio when he stopped and reached out of frame to take a sip of water during his 2013 response to then-President Barack Obama's State of the Union address - a break that Trump mercilessly mocked him for at the time.
"Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle—would have much less negative impact," Trump tweeted in February 2013.
He also mocked Rubio for needing to quench his thirst during speeches during the campaign trail when the two competed for the Republican nomination.
"When they put Marco on to refute President Obama's speech, do you remember that catastrophe?" Trump said during a campaign rally in Fort Worth, Texas, in February last year. "He's like this: 'I need water. Help me, I need water.' This is on live television. This total choke artist."
"It's Rubio," he continued holding up a bottle of water before splashing the water around him before tossing it behind him. "Unbelievable."
Twitter quickly pounced on the opportunity to mock the president and drew comparisons between the two saying Rubio "didn't need two hands" to take a swig of water from the bottle.
Rubio also took to Twitter to troll the president over the incident.
"Trump makes Senator Rubio look like a world champion water drinker compared to his clumsy display. Has the man never opened a bottle of water before?" NBC's Joe Scarborough tweeted.
One Twitter user wrote: "Marco Rubio only used one hand to hold the water bottle. Trump looked like he was drinking from a sippy cup."
"Instead of the big promised statement, we learned that Donald Trump is a dehydrated narcissist that needs 2 hands to drink bottled water from Fiji instead of from the United States. #MAGA", another user chimed.
"What goes around, comes around," one person tweeted.
