Rubio’s speech overshadowed by awkward #waterbottlegate

It wasn’t Sen. Marco Rubio’s GOP response to the State of the Union address that drew a huge reaction from the Twitter-verse tonight. It was his drinking habits during the response. Water drinking habits, of course.

During his speech, the Florida Senator apparently needed to wet his whistle and paused to reach for his water bottle and take a swig. The moment was definitely awkward, and it was the stuff Twitter dreams are made of.

According to Twitter Government, it was the most-tweeted moment of the GOP response.

The  Twitter-sphere was quick to label Rubio’s awkward moment as #waterbottlegate. And as BuzzFeed reported, at least 15 water bottle accounts were launched on Twitter. But the Senator took it all in stride, tweeting out a picture of his bottle of water.

Oh, and don’t forget about the gif!

    LOL see this is the double standard of the new liberal press that is owned and operated by the Obama machine . I have seen Obama on many occasions drink water while running his line.. Not a mention made of that I have heard Obama say kind of off color stuff on closed he thought Mic’s to a Russian leader but nothing said and god the stuff that rolls out of Bidens mouth makes me wish he drank water all the damn time.. But Rubio can talk with out his TelePrompter what can King Obama do ? He’d need a 40oz water bottle .
    Like this Morn on MSNBC they where all yukking the water thing up but not a word of the stupidity of Obamas plan to give more people everything and it was all going to be FREE! won’t cost tax payers a dime.. and will lower the deficit ..

    Without mentioning any names, wouldn’t it be prudent to listen to the message and not so much the messenger? We put so very much emphasis on the presentation and not enough attention is paid to the words, the message.
