Rubio criticizes Trump's mid-speech water-sipping form

Rubio criticizes Trump's mid-speech water-sipping form

Even Donald Trump needs some water sometimes.

Rubio was giving the GOP response to former President Barack Obama's State of the Union address and paused in the middle to reach for a water bottle and sneak a sip.

"They don't have water?" Someone quickly pointed him to a bottle of Fiji water, and he paused the briefing to take a swig from it.

Trump Tweets Thoughts and Prayers To Wrong Shooting Victims
Twitter users were quick to attack. "I am monitoring the situation from Japan", the president tweeted last week. The tweet was also very similar to the post Trump shared on the day of the Texan shooting over a week ago.


During Trump's speech, the president halted things to grab a bottle of water, (fairly slowly) unscrew the cap, and take a quick gulp before returning to his prepared remarks.

"Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle-would have much less negative impact", Trump tweeted in 2013. "'I need water, help me I need water".

It took only minutes for Rubio to respond, offering up a tongue-in-cheek assessment of the moment.

The Manager is expected to stay on having agreed a contract until the 2020 European Championships. Denmark has qualified for the 2018 World Cup, and Christian Eriksen played the role of the hero.


Rubio could not resist making a jab at Trump on Twitter.

The president made fun of Rubio for the first water bottle moment - which became a viral sensation- during their bitter 2016 Republican presidential primary clash, when Trump nicknamed the Florida senator "Little Marco". He added: "He's drinking water, water, water". Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera.

The remarks carried on for so long, however, that Trump became thirsty, causing something of a scene when he couldn't find water, crouching under the lectern to continue his search until reporters informed him that there was bottled water on the table beside him. "But not bad for his 1st time", Rubio wrote.
