Why Is the Mainstream Media Obsessed With Marco Rubio Drinking Water During SOTU Response?
The mainstream media has become fixated on the fact that Senator Marco Rubio needed a drink of water during his response to President Obama’s State of the Union. MSNBC played the clip over 150 times, and CNN speculated that the move could hurt Rubio’s career!
So, why has the moment captured so much media attention? The crew from The Five weighed in today.
Dana Perino said that the State of the Union rebuttals are only memorable when something goes wrong. “If he hadn’t have taken that drink of water, I will bet you money that they wouldn’t even have talked about Marco Rubio for more than 20 seconds,” she said.
Hear what the rest of The Five made of the water bottle moment and the media’s reaction.
