Sen. Marco Rubio had a dry mouth during the Republican Address to the Nation, leading to an awkward, off-screen grab for a Poland Spring bottle.

Rubio poked some fun at himself afterwards, tweeting out a picture of the water bottle.

UPDATE: Rubio responds on ABC’s Good Morning America.  “I needed water, what am I going to do?” Rubio said on Wednesday. “God has a funny way of reminding us we’re human.”
