Play of the Day: Our Parched President Returns From Asia

President Donald Trump returned to the United States from his 12-day trip to Asia and delivered a statement on Wednesday. During the televised event, Trump awkwardly drank from a bottle of Fiji Water and late-night hosts pounced. Late Night's Seth Meyers joked that the president looked like "five-year-old coming to the sidelines during a soccer practice," while The Daily Show's Trevor Noah joked that Trump opened the bottle like someone "clearly only drank soda for 40 years."

The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon had some fun with Trump's return from Asia by joking about the Customs Declaration form that Americans have to fill out on flights while returning form overseas trips. Fallon joked that Trump tried to "pet a Pokémon" and that he wrote that he "put ranch dressing on my egg roll."
