President Trump interrupted a statement on Wednesday afternoon to take an awkward sip from a water bottle. Initially, he could not see water on his podium, but then the reporters present there pointed a bottle that was kept on a table next to him.

"Wow, that is hard to watch". "'I need water, help me I need water".
