During an interview with “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan sharp-eyed viewers noticed something a bit odd about a glass of water sitting on the table next to President Trump.
A piece of paper was covering the glass the entire time, with Trump replacing it in between sips.
Graeme Demianyk, a reporter for HuffPost UK, was quite enthralled with the glass, posting an image of it on social media.
“He’s covered the top of his water glass with the paper coaster thing,” one viewer wrote. “That is proper paranoid. Does he think Piers is going to lace his drink?”
Morgan has now come forward to suggest that the fear of being poisoned is exactly why the President’s water had been covered.
He explained to viewers that there is one staff member dedicated solely to dealing with the ‘presidential water.’
“One woman who came in, working for the White House for years – she said she’s here for the presidential water – it’s my job to supply the water,” Morgan explained.
And supplying that water is quite an elaborate procedure.
“She gets a glass and pours a glass of the presidential water in and then she produces a presidential seal napkin and a presidential seal cover – she then placed them [over the water],” he recalled.
It isn’t just about germs, according to Morgan. There is a genuine concern about preventing any attempts to poison President Trump.
“It happens for every president – it’s all about the president protected,” he said. “From germs that might incapacitate him – but predominantly from being poisoned.”
Liberals were quick to jump at the opportunity to paint the President as paranoid for having his water protected. Considering the level of vitriol against Trump currently in this country, as well as Republicans, in general, having been the victims of violence – a shooting at a softball field (Alexandria) and a physical assault (Rand Paul) – is it any wonder there’d be some concern?
As Morgan points out, however, “it happens for every president.”
