US President Donald Trump ineptly went after a water bottle during a broadcast speech Wednesday – in a scene that without a doubt gave sweet revenge to Marco Rubio, the Republican congressperson and Trump’s one-time opponent for the White House. Trump – and many others – had constantly exposed Rubio for taking an awkward drink four years sooner, as he conveyed a discourse refuting Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. Presently destiny has turned up at ground zero. A few minutes into a White House summarizing his just-completed to Asia, Trump bowed down to go after water on a lower rack of his platform. Understanding no container was there, he flew up to report: “They don’t have water. That is OK.”
Donald Trump Paused His Speech At White House For A Water Bottle
When an assistant flagged that there was a bottle on Trump’s right side, the president hung over, stared resolutely forward as he twisted off the top, lifted the bottle to his lips with two hands, and took a sip.
At that point, the web detonated. Presents flooded Twitter review how Trump more than once ridiculed Rubio in 2013 over his watery blunder, and Wednesday’s video rapidly made it on to link news.
“Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle — would have much less negative impact,” Trump tweeted in February 2013.
Again on the campaign trail in February last year, Trump imitated Rubio on stage, and called him a “choke artist” over his water woes.
“Help me, I need water. Help!” Trump mocked, as he held up a bottle of water, took a swig, then casually threw it over his shoulder.
Rubio, who unsuccessfully challenged Trump for their party’s presidential nomination, wasted no time turning the tables.
“Similar, but needs work on his form,” Rubio quipped in a tweet. “Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera. But not bad for his 1st time.”
