Rubio Reaches For Water As Internet Users Focus On The Mundane

Marco Rubio Reaches For Water

“Rubio reaches for water” is one of the most popular trending terms on the internet following President Obama’s State of the Union Speech.

The term began trending after Marco Rubio awkwardly grabbed for a bottle of water and, in the process, made a very slight grimace face.

During his 10-minute rebuttal to President Obama’s SOTU speech, Rubio reached for his bottled water, which was just out of his reach.

Rubio struggled to stay fully in the camera’s line of sight as he grabbed for the water bottle, which in turn led to an even more awkward exchange.

After taking a sip of water, Rubio attempted to constrain his facial expression, which in turn only made the situation worse.

Experts on the GOP side of the table are calling Rubio’s rebuttal a win for the GOP, while opponents claim that his lack of composure proves he is unready for a higher office.

Following Rubio’s water reach his team decided to show off their sense of humor, posting a Twitter message that includes a photograph of Poland Spring Bottled water.

Here is the Rubio Tweet following his SOTU rebuttal speech:

    same old BS! Whatever one party says, the other contradicts! We are fooling ourselves to believe they will work together for the good of the country! PARTISANSHIP FOREVER!

    Is that all the left has? To poke fun at a man quenching his thirst is absurd. I would rather see him take a drink, than lick his lips like a dog trying to get the peanut butter out of it's mouth.

    Man needs drink of water. Man reaches over and gets drink of water. Smart man. People concentrating on "style" of man reaching for drink of water, stupid people.

    This just shows how absurd the assclowns that voted for Obama and his fake 5 millions jobs that he created while 8.5 million people stopped looking for jobs. Or that WHOOOPS shovel ready was just a joke…a joke that cost us almost 800 million. Explain to me how reaching for bottled water not done as cool as King Obama is better than spending your money.

    Nobody is mad at Marco Rubio for reaching for a drink of water, or that he was thirsty or had dry mouth or whatever was going on. It was just a funny moment guys relax. It's always funny how though how the conversation starts turning to defecits and over spending when the other party is the one cutting the checks. No one was talking deficits when Bush had us in 2 wars. The term "BIG GOVERNMENT" wasn't being thrown around when the Patriot Act was signed which allows the government to violate your privacy for "National Security" reasons. When Reagan was spending billions and billions on something as ridiculously stupid as "Star Wars", I never heard anyone having long talks about not raising the debt ceiling.

    And nobody talks about the fact that Clinton balanced the budget with Republican majorities in both houses of Congress. Big government is a bi-partisan effort, and it's time sensible governing becomes a bi-partisan effort.
