Media Highlights Trump’s ‘Awkward’ Water Bottle Moment

NBC News and CNN published articles on President Donald Trump’s “awkward” moment searching for a water bottle during his speech and recap of his trip to Asia.

CNN’s analysis [1] called it a “dry-mouthed victory lap,” while NBC News’ headline [2] was, “Trump has awkward water bottle moment on TV.”

The media was quick to point out that this was similar to Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s TV speech moment, during which he also scrambled to find a water bottle.
