Stephen Colbert mocks Marco Rubio’s #waterbottlegate in hilarious reenactment

No need to feel bad about #waterbottlegate, Sen. Marco Rubio. Even late-night comedian and on-camera pro Stephen Colbert gets thirsty sometimes and has to take drastic measures to get a drink.

During Wednesday night’s episode of ‘The Colbert Report,’ the host spent almost five minutes of his show making jabs at the Florida Republican’s GOP response to the State of the Union, culminating in one of Colbert’s funniest reenactments ever.

Colbert started by playing a mashup of Rubio wiping his brow and smacking his lips, as well as the infamous water moment.

“Don’t worry Senator Rubio,” Colbert said. “Nobody noticed — that you gave a speech.”

The comedian defended Rubio, saying being on camera can be challenging. Colbert then proceeded to ‘sweat’ and lick his lips, before climbing over his desk and crawling across the stage to grab a bottle of water, much to the amusement of the audience.

“You may have not noticed that I got a little thirsty there,” Colbert said. “But that’s how pros like me and Marco Rubio do it.”

Even though Rubio doesn’t deserve as much flak as he’s gotten — and has handled the situation with humor and poise — Colbert’s outrageously funny reenactment is worth watching.

    God I was at my Drs last evening and they had on some bleeding heart channel from Boston NECN I think it was. God what a pile of crap they are if I where paying for the service I’d not have it . I’m southern born breed and raised country conservative no workie no eatie is my rule.. But this NECN channel had 3 taking heads that just kept yucking it up about the damn water bottle .Big Deal its not like he leaned over and did a few lines of Blow as Obama called his coke .. They just kept on giggling and laughing and talking about it like he ?? took a dump on T.V ..But they never mentioned that he had just stood there for 20 plus minuends talking in Spanish that same speech. Man got dry mouth big deal ? But if the new immigrants where made to learn English as all before had too do then there would be no story..
    I managed to piss off about 6 people in the waiting room who where also all abuzz about the disgraceful way he dank that water..After I mentioned that he had just did the same thing in Spanish for all who can’t or won’t learn the language (: And then I threw in as for something to talk about I never heard them mention the disgraceful way the country is being managed and I’d think the public would be better served if they talked about Obama lack of leader ship no budget wasteful spending raising taxes killing the medical services in the country and gun control.. .. They all shut up..

    The Dr told me thank you Mr. I hear that crap all day long and what gets me is they do not understand what Obamacare will do to them and hell the ones that bitch the most are getting free medical treatment from Ct welfare services .. But that the way it goes.. those who pay nothing want the most.. God I live with culture shock everyday up here in Liberal land . I had hoped to move back down but Obama got the job and who can sell a house now for whats invested ?

      Oh, look. Another butthurt conservative…

      You’ve got yours, Jack, and that’s all that matters. Just remember that when you need FEMA to help rebuild your community after a disaster, or the FDA and CDC when there’s an outbreak in your state. Just tell them no thanks and you “don’t need no big guvermint” in yur life when you need a vaccine or a roof over your head.

      Do you really think ALL your taxes go to freeloaders? I don’t like freeloaders, either. Who does? Less than 1% of welfare recipients are freeloaders. If you’ve ever collected Unemployment Insurance or plan to receive SSI, you may be a hypocrite. Oh, and the Gingrich congress introduced the child tax credit and G.W. EXPANDED it, helping all your “freeloaders”. BTW, do you claim that credit?

      Oh, and who led us into TWO decade-long wars, spending well over a TRILLION dollars (there’s your deficit and “big guvermint spending”). See here: http://costofwar.com/.

      I value my time, so I’ll just quit now. Just remember that your party is dead and in the future, no one is going to care about all you backwards folk left in the dust. THEN you’ll know what it’s like to be a MINORITY! MUAHAHAHAHA!

        Unemployment was meant to be payed into by employers not extended but using tax payers dolllars. Fema is a load of crap that’s why there is a national guard . SSI when done right has merit as in you really cant work not cause its inconvenient and that should be handled by state not the FEDS . You sir have it wrong the FED GOV is massively inefficient and bush dealt with a attack on our country if he would not have acted at all you would flip the other way and call him a coward . Bush wasn’t that best but at least he didn’t ok killing USA citizens and suspend US citzens rights yeah he passed that Patriot act but that had a time limit and Obama extended it and passed NDAA. So you can say all you want but the GOV isent MOMMY or DADDY and they get payed to make sure the Constitution and bill or rights are upheld at all costs if they don’t follow them , then they are just worthless thieves stealing money without consent .

      2. Jason says:

        Oh god what a surprise a liberal wanting to blame Bush. It would be funny if it were not so sad considering Obama has accumulated more debt in 4 years than Bush did in 8! Yep that’s right more debt in 4 than any other president has done in 4 EVER. Not to mention that he promised to cut it in half by the end of his first term and only increased it. It’s unfortunate he doesn’t live up to his word because if I remember right he said he would cut it in half or else he wouldn’t be here a 2nd term and oh how much better this country would be if he was not here any longer..

      3. Wyland Payne says:

        First off, your math is off when you say 1% of welfare recipients are freeloaders, it is more than 50%. Second you think we are hypocrites? You are a hypocrite too. Third your President is getting us involved with other countries problems which will lead to more wars in the future. Forth don’t talk about spending when it is your party that has really spent the most. And finally I suggest you go to private school because it is obvious that the public school has failed you. If you know history you would know that the Democratic Party was always the majority party, and also you would know that this country’s principles was all about making sure the majority doesn’t take advantage of minority as well as know the this country was built on the principals of freedom not the principals of servitude.
