The president eventually moved on to the water incident, in which he tried to drink a glass of water with one hand, and appeared to require the other hand to lift it to his mouth.
Trump explained he was speaking for a long time and “wanted to wet my lips a little bit.” He said he couldn’t lift the glass up to his mouth because he “just saluted 600 times,” adding that he also wanted to protect his red silk tie.
The president proceeded to drink a glass of water before the Tulsa rally crowd, successfully doing so with one hand. He threw the glass on the stage. The crowd went wild, launching into a chant of “FOUR MORE YEARS.”
