Florida Sen. Marco Rubio just mocked Donald Trump for his awkward reach for a drink of water during a Wednesday television address, comparing it to his own famous hydration break during a 2013 TV appearance.
“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” Rubio tweeted.

Trump pointedly paused during his speech recapping his 12-day trip to Asia to take a drink of water from a bottle, clips of which quickly went viral on Twitter.
Trump has mocked Rubio in the past for drinking water during his response to then-President Obama’s 2013 State of the Union address, which featured a jolting reach out of frame for the Florida senator.
Next time Marco Rubio should drink his water from a glass as opposed to a bottle—would have much less negative impact.

More than a tweet, there's also a video of Trump mocking Rubio's SOTU water moment. pic.twitter.com/dkKyrOIUGO
