Stewart, Colbert poke fun at Rubio (VIDEO)

February 14, 2013

As we noted in Morning Fix today, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's "water bottle" moment during his response to President Obama's State of the Union has received widespread attention. Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert each took a turn Wednesday at making fun of the episode.

Colbert offered some comforting words to the Florida Republican. "Don't worry, Senator Rubio. Nobody noticed -- that you gave a speech," he said on the "Colbert Report."

On "The Daily Show," Stewart joked about the "self-deportation of Marco Rubio's saliva from the inside of his mouth to the outside of his face."
