Stephen Colbert Hilariously Recreates Trump's Bizarre Water Bottle Mishap

CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert had a bit of fun reenacting President Donald Trump's painful water bottle moment during a national address about his trip to Asia.

Colbert showed the audience a clip of Trump first unable to locate the water then, after finally locating the water, awkwardly unscrewing the bottle cap on national television.

“Wow, that is hard to watch. You know, after watching that, I need a drink,” Colbert said. Then he proceeded to reenact the president's fumbling, complete with awkward cap-twisting.

“All right, that’s not fair. Everybody gets dry mouth, I can’t stand here on national television and make fun of a politician for drinking water," Colber joked before running tape of Trump mocking Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his water mishap.
