WATCH: Marco Rubio Addresses Water Bottle Moment During State of the Union Response – “My Mouth Got Dry”
Tuesday night, Florida Senator Marco Rubio delivered the GOP rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address.
At one point during his remarks, Rubio grabbed a bottle of water – a move that’s garnered much attention online.
Wednesday on Fox and Friends, Rubio offered a simple explanation – “My mouth got dry.”
“You know when you give a speech, you have a podium and the water is right there, but when you don’t, you start looking around and [thinking] ‘Where am I going to get the water from’ […] I figured I was better off taking that water and taking the hit for it then being unable to pronounce my word at the end of it,” he told Steve Doocy.
Rubio also took on some of the proposals outlined in President Obama’s address – see what he had to say below.
