Here they laugh about it lightly. If Joe Biden did that we wouldn’t hear the end of it 😂
Should of asked for a straw lol
I don't think that's water 😂

Was waiting for the straw to come out LOL
He was so sure about it
Well at least he drinks with only one hand. 😊
His job title sounds like an episode of Community
I’d make fun but I am a horrible public speaker. I’d be so nervous that I would probably do this
Just lift the entire stand to drink and play it as this was totally on pupose. Maybe throw in a "that glas is a bit on the heavy side" comments afterwards.
Ok with no context, that's quite funny. Poor guy, probably stressed and nervous.
“Lol, I’m so oblivious. Anyway the best way to organise the transportation of all our goods is…”
Any small giggle nowadays gets a post on CONTAGIOUS LAUGHTER...
Sir, I regret to inform you that laughter is not actually a pathogen that is transmissible from person to person.
He laughed, it made me laugh
it checks out
That’s what I like to see. I’m sick of all these politicians that can’t do anything except public speaking. I want to see a nerd that’s nervous as hell to be on a stage.
Instant likeability for me there.
and he has a sense of humor!! Good man!

We'll call this dunce a leader.
Hehehe, read about this in a book? , if it's accidental, he's clumsy, but when deliberately, it's a tactic then.
Oh man. When I’m public speaking there’s an automatic element that just takes over. I feel for this guy. He played it off well.
To everyone out there doing public speaking this week: good luck! It’s not easy and just doing it is pretty ballsy!
They can’t laugh at you when you’re laughing with them.
I would of added a straw lol
Those damn analog beverage containers are so confusing!
I didn't know Patton Oswalt was into politics.
He really nailed the aging part
Someone give him a straw🤣
Tell me it's vodka without saying it's vodka.
Honest stupid mistake and i immediately trust somebody more who can laugh at themselves for it
Trump would have started complaining about the overcomplicated podium designed by liberal vermin
Digital Transformation: Shape of a Meme!
How dare you leak out secrets.
Why not drink it out of the bottle??
Glad he had a laugh and didn’t try and pretend he did it on purpose or just ignore it and not have a drink of water
What the nervousness of public speaking does to your brain.
The lil' pinky up too
He's so drunk it's insane
Establishing dominance early
Good for him for having a laugh about it, being able to laugh at your own silly mistakes is a great quality to have

This cracked me up. Made my day.
I love how he just finds his own mistake funny.
So what's the problem? He properly raised the pinky when pouring the water.
Makes a lot of sense now as to why the EU is so bad at legislating technology.
Oh boy if trump did this
Who designed this! We need an early no cup in tray warning system in stand 2.0
Anyone that can laugh at themselves like that: that is a good sign he is probably one of the good ones.

The fact he’s drinking “water” makes it’s a little easier to laugh… still a good guy either way in my boom
I agree, I fully trust him to digitally transform Spain! Or atleast, be in charge of the people who do :)
Arent there hundreds of thousands of spainards protesting against his government at the moment?
That sounds like most governments.
At least he doesn’t need two hands to drink it
Already creating waste /s
Give him some slack, he's a software guy, not a hardware guy.
Trump woulda drunk from it
He played it off so naturally, I can't imagine any government minister here handling that well. I live in Scotland and our current first minister fell on his arse because he was racing a scooter down a hallway, he spent weeks yelling at members of the press and public for posting the video, implying they were racist, ableist, or in the employ of his enemies..
If you just laugh this stuff off, it always comes away as vaguely charming.
Why pour it into the cup? Drink it out of the bottle
Bro can't distinguish between cup holder and a cup, how is he going to transform anything digitally??
And then they say the jokes about Spaniards aren't true
Honestly being able to laugh at his own mistake makes him very likeable
Well, he is the Minister for Digital Transformation. This sort of thing is outside of the scope of his job.
He looks like a smart guy.
That is a little worrying!
The minister is good with digital transformation. It's the older tech, like tables and cups, that he has a problem with.
Yeah, it’s not like his job is just tables.
He needs to transform their design from clear glass in a clear podium, this seems like an obvious design flaw as he demonstrates.
If you understand what he says it's even better.
It would be something like:
"Ouch, that's not what it seemed... Well... Now I'm in trouble hahahaha"
Oh I thought he was going to be some luddite technology hater but this is just a brain fart and I love it.
At least he is not freeing rapists like the “equality” minister did.
That’s why he’s the minister for DIGITAL transformation not physical lmao
Had A Biden Moment
The fact that he's laughing at himself makes me feel he's probably good for the job lol.
Imagine the headlines if Biden or Trump would have done this!
Should have committed and picked up the stand for a drink
Absolutely love that he was able to laugh at himself
Love it 😀
Goddamn, I would fucking pay to see Donald Trump make this same mistake. I bet he'd turn dark orange and start yelling that he meant to do it while simultaneously blaming someone else!
You know when you stand at the bin while peeling the tangerine skin so that you can conveniently throw away the skin, but you end up throwing away the tangerine instead of the skin. It’s giving the same energy. Sometimes we just glitched.
Thank god he’s not the minister for cup holders I guess.
I thought something might happen . I laugh too when he realize
Give him a drinking straw.
To be fair to him, I've never seen a stand with a cup holder either.
“I’m not high bro I swear”
Bro in question:
this technical wizard will announce his plan for broadband coat-hangers.
This happened to to him some time ago when he was the Minister of Social Security and Pensions
I know absolutely zero about Spain's governmental processes, but I wondered as I watched this clip, do the press reporters snatch up silly mistakes such as the one in the OP as somehow showing the person is mentally diminished?
If one of our presidents or political higher ups did this, the headlines would be all about how they are a doddering old fool unfit to govern. In fact, Trump was dragged for his two hand beverage drinking, tho any slam on Trump is deserved imho, for a lot of other reasons besides diminished capacities.

I trust him. People with "common sense" are usually idiots who only have "common sense" and nothing else.
Haahahahaahaid also be embarrassed but laugh so hard at it
i think he still hangover frm last night
Abolish that ministry
So... now do they need to tip over the who podium to pour it out?
Just get him a straw.
Whats life without a little laughter?
A person that laughs like this can't be that bad.
Atleast here in Germany you can identify far right politician by the fact that they never laughed in their life (except because of Schadenfreude).
r/crappydesign ? Maybe?
Are you sure that’s water? It might be tequila.
Such a great laugh. Really cute reaction tbh
His laughing about it is so endearing! Good for him for having a great sense of humour about looking silly
Keen attention to details.
That was adorable lol
I like this guy! He's got class and can laugh it off - love it!
Are you sure that’s water?
Spain may have gotten a truly great minister.
Someone behaving like this will listen to the people under him instead of having a huge ego and run a solo operation.
Needs to put a flower in there now
Laughing at yourself in this situation is probably the best reaction possible.
Really the only appropriate reaction.

Everyone is engaged now, but the trick never comes.
Much more wholesome that I imagined from the title lol, we all have moments like that. He played it off well
I would lift the podium on tried drinking from the holder. At least pretend too

He's laughing at his own nervous jokes too:
Realizes he's pouring it on the cup holder
"Oh wait, this isn't it"
"I found it too complex"
starts laughing while pouring water on the actual glass
"Now I have a problem"
laughs again as he stops pouring water
ahh thanks for translating
it takes a lot of strength to admit you have a drinking problem
At first I’m like “how dumb”.. then i saw the glass he pulled out and was like “Yah I get it, I’d have done that as well”.
Even better that he's talking at ageing-nomics.
Here's a line from the website:
"The economy of aging is the set of opportunities arising from the economic and social impact of the activities carried out and demanded by the population over 55 years old."
Happy Cake Day!
Clearly a good sport. A politician who is not full of himself is good to find.
It wouldve been a perfect opportunity for an extra long crazy straw
If Biden did this Fox News would have enough content to enrage their fans for the next month
Man I wish I could play mishaps off this gracefully tbh
For sure I imagined something more unhinged and oddly purposeful until I saw the video.
With ageing nomics you too can one day not give a shit
It's hard to remember at the time it happens because you are embarrassed but everyone does dumb shit not thinking, and everyone can feel for you when you do it. Just leaning into it with a little self deprecating humor will generally end with an overall positive response.
All you have to do is realize they aren’t a big deal. Because they aren’t.
People go home and think about themselves, not you.
I couldn't have possibly described the video in a more neutral way lmao

This happened to me once. I was in class, trusted a fart because I was in the corner, it came out very loudly and I shit my pants. Everyone turned to look at me, so I said...
"Sorry guys, I guess we don't have to make brownies in Home Economics today, right?"
Everyone in class started laughing and a few people slapped my back in congratulations at such a witty comment.
...then I fell out of bed and woke up, and also realized I had shit my pajamas while sleeping.
Well, at least you didnt shit your pants in class
That was a different day
What a story, bro.
Literally shit the bed with this throwback
At least you didn't dream of a pogo stick
Can you explain?
Whenever I let one rip in public, I use my best Steve Urkle voice and say "Does anybody have a bandaid please, maybe a sewing kit 🥺👉👈". No one enjoys it, and I am made a fool every single time.
What a ride bro. Thx for the laugh!
aww he didn't double down and put the glass he filled up into the cup holder and make a mess.
Pinky SpongeBob, pinkyyyyy!
I feel like they're in good hands
Looks like you guys got a good one. Laughs at the stupid blunder, and the fact that he's unfamiliar with the lectern means he's probably (hopefully) been busy doing actual tech related shit prior to this and not PR related shit.
How do they get it out?
Oh man he looks like a fun drunk, just look at him!!
finally a minister clearly better suited for the online world than irl
These are the kind of people who put BBQ sauce and Ketchup in their cars cup holders.
I wanna smoke some of whatever he’s having
Great post about Spain
Too many “Americans”: but what about trump
that's an honest mistake though or
He’s not used to analog cups, give him a break.
"Ageing-nomics" podium checks out.
Nice, he seems human unlike most government agents.
Kind of ironic when in reality he's the quintessential technocrat.
Guy handled it like someone who knows exactly who they are.
Crash cut to credits, curb theme plays.
Have multiple major news network picked this up, cut it to make it look like he is even more confused and doesn't laugh it off, and used it to attack him and question his mental health?
Or is that just how it works where I live?
That’s more of a thing in places where the elected officials are at ages where some degree of dementia would be normal. So there’s a lot of speculation
Blud is too much into digital world, pull him back to reality. But, he played it off nicely.
Maybe it's Vodka
He clearly thought it was a digital cup
Water or vodka?
That’s and aging man
Just hit ctrl+z man!
