Marco Rubio drinking water during speech creates distraction, becomes new viral video

Marco Rubio’s awkward swig of water during the Republican response to the State of the Union Tuesday night is getting a lot of attention.

Rubio appeared to grow increasingly uncomfortable, wiping his mouth and licking his lips on a number of occasions. Apparently unable to wait until the end of his address to satiate his thirst, Rubio reached for his small bottle of Poland Springs water mid-speech.

Here’s a sample of the headlines:
