Marco Rubio paused in the middle of his response to President Obama’s State of the Union to take a sip from a just-off-camera bottle of water.
The break between points about Obama’s speech instantly became fodder for Twitter snark.

Rubio’s off-camera water grab will be talked about tomorrow more than his address — West Wing Reports (@WestWingReport) February 13, 2013
At least he’s getting some laughs of his own out of the incident: Rubio tweeted this picture after the speech.
