Trump Mocked By Reporters on His Water Drinking Style…Then Eric Bolling Speaks Up [VIDEO]

On Wednesday President Donald Trump managed to tick off reporters at his first press conference since returning from his 12-day trip in Asia. What he did that was so ‘excruciatingly’ bad, was the way the president asked for and drank water at the press briefing. Moreover, it seems this has become the focal point of discussion for everyone on the liberal side.

While we were all waiting to hear questions on the president’s ventures in Asia, the way he took two sips of water from a Fiji bottle was the main attention grabber.

“They don’t have water,” he said and began looking for a bottle. “That’s OK.” One of the people present at the news conference suggested there was water next to the President, which is when he reached down to grab it.

As you might notice, this sparked quite the controversy among social media users.

Trump received intense backlash for the type of water he had sipped from, which was Fiji water that comes from the South Pacific.

Former Fox News Eric Bolling managed to explain to the wider public that Fiji Water is actually an American company.

“Before you go there…. Fiji Water is sourced in Fiji but the company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. They pay US taxes. And the imports are GOOD for our vast global trade imbalances,” he tweeted.

Bolling received plenty of support on his Twitter statement.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio joked about the technique the POTUS used to drink water.

Just last year, Trump did a similar commentary segment where he teased Rubio for pausing during his GOP response to the 2013 State of the Union speech just so he can have a sip of water.

The Fiji brand became a topic of interest to many. Some even researched the company’s Wikipedia page, where it is clearly stated, “Fiji Water is the first official thirst quencher of Donald Trump.”

As per the data provided by the website, Fiji Water was founded in 1996 and has since become “the number one imported bottled water in the United States.”
