President Donald Trump on Wednesday took a brief break during a speech at the White House to re-hydrate.
It recalled Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) response to former President Barack Obama’s 2013 state of the union address, which he, too, paused for a drink.
Trump mocked Rubio for that moment at the time, and on the 2016 campaign trail.
Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle—would have much less negative impact.

On Wednesday, the senator responded in kind:
Similar,but needs work on his form.Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera. But not bad for his 1st time https://t.co/s49JtyRo3S
