"Tell me this person is not an alien," Trevor Noah jokes while studying Donald Trump drinking water.
President Donald Trump was parched during a White House press conference Wednesday afternoon and quenched his thirst in the most awkward way possible, catching the attention of late-night stars and the majority of Twitter.
"Who holds a bottle of water like a sippy cup?" Trevor Noah asked on "The Daily Show" Wednesday night, while Stephen Colbert called out Trump for making fun of fellow Republican politician Marco Rubio for doing the exact same thing during the election.
Having just returned from a trip to Asia, Trump was discussing Japan's $8 billion dollar investments in U.S. companies when he paused to look around the podium for some water. An off-camera person signaled to him that there was a water bottle nearby, so he bent down, cracked open a bottle of Fiji, and took a big sip -- with both hands --while maintaining eye contact with the camera the whole time.
Jimmy Kimmel briefly addressed the latest Trump gaffe with just one joke: "He's talking about bringing jobs back to America, but he's drinking a bottle of water from Fiji. He's not even drinking American water during the speech about American [jobs]. I think that does a very good job of summing the man up right there."
See how Noah and Colbert, and a bunch of people on Twitter, dug into POTUS below:
'The Daily Show with Trevor Noah'
"President Trump is back from Asia, and apparently, very thirsty for applause," Noah joked Wednesday night.
"I don't always drink water," Noah said, mocking Trump, "but when I do, I look super weird."
"Why is he afraid to open the water like it's going to fizz all over him? What is he doing? This is a guy who clearly only drank soda for the last 40 years."
"Who holds a bottle of water like a sippy cup?" the comedian added. "I wish at that moment people from Puerto Rico would have come out and started throwing water bottles at his face."
"Tell me this person is not an alien," he demanded. "Tell me!"
'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'
During his opening monologue, Colbert imitated Trump drinking from the bottle.
"Alright, that's not fair," the "Late Show" host said. "Everybody gets dry mouth. I can't stand here on national television and make fun of a politician just for drinking water. That is childish. And Trump already did it way better with Rubio."
Last February, Trump publicly mocked the Florida senator for taking a sip of water during one of his speeches when the two of them were running against each other for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
Rubio caught wind of Trump's thirsty moment and took a light-hearted jab at his onetime rival via Twitter, writing, "Similar, but needs work on his form. Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera. But not bad for his 1st time."

The fact that he needs two hands to drink a bottle of water is what really does it for me. pic.twitter.com/uE8Gqodnje— Cody Keenan (@codykeenan) November 15, 2017
Trump can't even drink water like a normal person. pic.twitter.com/PJfbrbLsel— AtomicFact (@Atomicfact) November 16, 2017

This wouldn’t be an issue if @realDonaldTrump hadn’t been such an ass about Marco Rubio— doodling_yankee (@doodler30) November 16, 2017
His hands barely fit around a small Fiji?? Damn pic.twitter.com/k2OhhsN72s— Ryan Horne (@hornedizzle) November 16, 2017
. @realDonaldTrump I’m not too optimistic about what you’re going to do to the swamp after watching you try to drain a water bottle yesterday.— 🌎Joshua Malina🌎 (@JoshMalina) November 16, 2017
First he eats pizza with a knife and fork. In New York City no less. Then he sips water in front of the whole world two-handed like a mama's boy. Me, I like presidents with good table manners!— marcladewig (@marcladewig) November 16, 2017
I’m just shocked it’s not Trump branded water.— (((Molly Jong-Fast))) (@MollyJongFast) November 15, 2017
Seen this 3x and totally missed the 2 handed— John Dodge (@Sanityreturn2us) November 15, 2017
Is there ANYTHING this buffoon can do competently?
He is so freaking weird— Edmond (@moneymon133) November 16, 2017

To be fair, he does have tiny hands...— Denise M. Alvarado (@voodoomuse1) November 16, 2017
Trump acting like the backside of podium is complicated maze of secret compartments. I mean, how does he not find that bottle the 1st time?— MindyLou (@mindyloudenver) November 15, 2017
and the extreme puckering, did he think there was a straw?— Goatcontraire (@jack2spratt) November 15, 2017
He's awkward in every single thing he does.— Char (@CHARHARTMAN) November 15, 2017
To be fair, it's hard to do the "Mussolini Chin" and drink water at the same time. pic.twitter.com/avxTkdiZBJ— #Resist Trumpism (@TrumpsBane) November 15, 2017
