When we saw President Trump reach for a drink of water on Wednesday, we knew there‚Äôd be news stories: the question was, would his awkward sip of water be worth a day of cable news coverage, or more?
The sip came too late for Wednesday‚Äôs edition of ‚ÄúMorning Joe,‚ÄĚ so will we have to settle for a tweet, or will there be another run through the footage Thursday morning on MSNBC?
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? https://t.co/iUVMPFUssH

Look at how petty the "resistance" has become. They ooze blind Trump hate from every pore. https://t.co/FzZJNHC49n

It really is amazing when there‚Äôs no substantial difference between tweets about Trump starting a nuclear war with North Korea and taking a sip of water during a news conference. Or feeding koi.
