Between spewing out hateful messages on Twitter, derogatory comments about women, immigrants and Democratic voters, it's no surprise Donald Trump is in need of some water once in a while to wet his whistle.

However, is it just us or is it a bit weird to see the 45th President of the US pause a live press conference on television to purse his lips and chug back a bottle of water?

During an appearance at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, the Leader of the Free World found his mouth had become a wee bit dry (lies will do that to you, Trumpy), and in need of some H20, mid speech.

In an unorthodox move for a politician - nay, any public speaker - the former reality star paused the live questioning to guzzle down a bottle of water, while fixating his gaze on the television screen, much like a university Fresher downing a pint of lager in a 'waterfall challenge'.

'I will down this drink in less than three seconds, mate, just watch!'

Bizarre thing for a president to do?

Yes, but what makes the move even more bizarre is the fact that back in 2013, the now-president called U.S. Senator Marco Rubio a 'total choke artist' after the politician drank water during his State of the Union response.

Of course, it didn't take long before Rubio made light of the ironic moment on Twitter.

Oh, and then the rest of the world.

Donald, next time you need some water, take your own advice and grab a glass won't you?
