The sip heard ’round the world: Rubio drinks water; Media dutifully carry water for the Left

Boom! It’s not surprising that tweet is at 560 retweets and counting. And once again, Twitter was prescient.

Marco Rubio delivered a response to the State of the Union address last night that many conservatives described as “awesome.” But judging by the media coverage, it looks like he simply sidled up to the cameras and took a sip of water before preparing to slink away in shame and defeat.

BREAKING: Suspected human being Marco Rubio quenches thirst with … gasp! … water!

Not so breaking: Once again, the palace guard media are carrying Obama’s water. “SQUIRREL!” of the day:

Rubio laughed it off today as he made the morning show rounds.

Many think the focus on Rubio’s “drinking problem” is an embarrassing miscalculation on the part of Obama’s water carriers.

We suspect it will be quite a while before the media’s “Water-gate” well runs dry.

Update: Tuesday night in a nutshell:

    • Tangchung

      • Spatial Awareness

        • Tangchung

          • Spatial Awareness

  • GaryTheBrave

    I understand the brand was Poland Springs. The trolls are going to complain that he drinks Polish water, why not American water.

    • Noah Lee

      they don’t have water in poland since the guy with the recipe left. hahahaha!

      • TJCrane_NCC1701

        An oldie but a goody.

        BTW, RAAAAACISSSST !!!eleventy!!!!11!!!

    • James McEnanly

      Poland Springs water is a product of the state of Maine. I’d rather have him drinking water, no matter where it’s from, than whatever Hillary’s beverage of choice is.

    Will this scandal affect Rubio in 2016? His career is over. Meanwhile, Obama has been spotted in California playing 18 holes with Chris Dorner and OJ Simpson.

  • Tangchung

    Com’on, you mean to tell me Obama doesn’t drink water or something. Got to be a clip of Obama taking a sip of water. Wtf.

    • Aaron

      Obama drinks water “all the time”. And in 3 or 4 weeks the White House will release a picture proving it.

      Along with the customary “Don’t photoshop me, bro!” warning, of course.

    • GaryTheBrave

      He drinks water but only after it’s been brewed with hops and stuff.

  • FreedomFighter

    The liberal media will try to sell this as Rubio working for the big evil water corporation shamelessly flashing the product name.

    • Joseph Bentz

      At least Rubio can string two sentences together without the aid of a teleprompter.

  • $36544368

    At least his speech wasn’t watered down!

  • aPLWBinAK


    “Rubio: drinking water. Obama: treading water. MSM: carrying water. Americans: underwater”.,…….I can’t improve on that. This tweeter nailed it.

    • Lady 12

      I agree. The guy should consider a career as a journalist.

  • Elaine

    He always DRINKS a lot when he speaks. He’s awesome! WATCH all three.—marco-rubio-extended-interview-pt–1 What’s the big deal? Was it a BIG GULP or something and Bloomberg freaked? Ridiculous.

  • Jack Deth

    The media had to find SOMETHING to ridicule Rubio with. Since they could not argue the facts of his speech.

    Basically, liberal media Standard Operating Procedures.

  • grais

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I can appreciate the fact that a human being needs to drink water.
    I wonder how long it will take for liberals to start calling him an addict.


  • Guest

    The media is appalled because Rubio drinks water, whereas they think Obama walks on it.

  • Noah Lee

    he should have a beer in his hand next time and really piss off the media!

  • Everybodys All American

    I hear Obama’s Koolaide leaves a very bitter taste.

  • Gallatin

    Kevin Eder
    Wouldn’t it be something if the mainstream ‘news’ media showed even a passing interest in the actual contents of Rubio’s speech?

    Yes, and it would also be something if the libturd lamestream media showed even a passing interest in the actual contents of obowmao’s speech.

  • Noah Lee

    omg, he reached awkwardly for a water bottle. surely, this would disqualify him from being president. A president must be poised at all times. just like mister “well, well, hold on now, give me a minute here” Obama.

  • Lady 12

    I cannot figure out how taking a sip of water is spun into a big deal.

  • Art Salmons

    This is pure Alinsky. NBC, CBS, ABC, Politico – all are featuring front page stories on Rubio’s water. All of them start exactly the same – Rubio drinking water isn’t news, but “A firestorm of Twitter” is. Who’s making all these anti-Rubio tweets? The same people commenting on the NBC & CBS articles – astroturfers with Obama icons. THIS WAS PLANNED. Rubio was declared the next big GOP hope, so they coordinated and attacked together last night.

  • BigTBoom

    Yesterday Rubio drank water, tomorrow the masses will be drinking Brawndo.

  • Slapweasel

    Somebody tell the media that Kool-Aid is 99% water.

    …they are the true 1%.

  • lcky9

    IF I had to listen to OBAMA I’d need MORE than water .. and I hate the taste of booze..

  • Kleverabevera

    Obama has a pet fly creeping out of every orifice of his body 24/7, but the media want to make a big deal out of a human being who required some water.

    • SisterWoman


  • wyatt81

    The MSM: pathetically, exhaustingly, and consistently predictable.

  • Zilla of the Resistance

    The stupid media went crazy over Paul Ryan’s water consumption during the Veep debate as well – you know, because conservatives are all supposed to be robots and it messes with the narrative if they hydrate because robots need oil, not water.

    Or something.

  • michael s

    Why are you surprised at the Rubio ragging,after all Ann Coulter did say he is a novelty candidate.
