Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio took one small sip of water during his GOP rebuttal to the State of the Union address yesterday.  It immediately sparked a deluge of tweets, memes and an infamous GIF courtesy of BuzzFeed.  


There were also plenty of snarky comments. 

Rubio showed he could laugh at himself, tweeting a photo of the now infamous Poland Spring bottle.  He told Good Morning America, “I needed water, what am I going to do?” 


Continuing the joke, he pulled out a bottle of water on the show and took a sip. 

“God has a funny way of reminding us we’re human," Rubio said on the show
