President Trump interrupted his speech Wednesday on his Asia trip a couple of times to drink from a bottle of Fiji water — and Sen. Marco Rubio said his drinking game needs some work.

When Mr. Rubio, Florida Republican, gave the Republican response to then-President Obama’s State of the Union speech in 2013 — his first big moment in the national spotlight — he interrupted his speech to drink some water. The moment became an internet phenomenon and widely snarked at, a history that led Fox News producer Pat Ward to copy Mr. Rubio on his tweet of the Trump water moment, essentially soliciting the senator’s comment.

The quick-witted Mr. Rubio did not disappoint.

“Similar, but needs work on his form,” Mr. Rubio replied on Twitter.

“Has to be done in one single motion & eyes should never leave the camera. But not bad for his 1st time,” the senator jokingly continued.
