Rubio’s drink

To the Editor:

How dare Republican Sen. Marco Rubio pause during his speech responding to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union and take a drink of water. This deplorable act of thirst proves once and for all that conservatives are inept, bigoted fat cats who refuse to pay their fair share and care nothing for the poor or the middle class.

Thank goodness the mainstream media has our back and exposed this outrage.

The fact that MSNBC broadcast the Rubio clip almost 200 times but Fox News replayed it only 12 times shows that Fox is biased and doesn’t cover the really big news stories.

Fortunately, we have a president who not only doesn’t need water, he walks on water. And, thankfully, he gave another perfect, fact-filled speech on his own that night. I hope that people in all “57” states were watching.
