Worst Food Faux Pas: Marco Rubio's water bottle or Barack Obama's Chipotle order?

Politicians face these same struggles while surrounded by a press gaggle and the eyes of the entire nation. Sometimes a normal meal goes bad. These are the worst of the worst. In this round, we have Marco Rubio's horribly timed sip of water versus Barack Obama getting handsy at a Chipotle. Which is the worst?

It shouldn't be that hard to drink water. It really shouldn't. We all do it many, many times throughout the day. We've been doing it since infancy. Put a receptacle full of liquid up to your lips and sip. It's so simple. 

Yet, sometimes things go horribly wrong. Something's off. You can feel it but you don't know how to fix it. You end up with water up your nose, spilled on the floor, all over the place. You're left there soggy, wondering what happened. How did things go so off the rails? Very rarely do we get to witness, in real time, the panic of someone realizing they've forgotten to drink water like a normal person. But that's exactly what happened to poor Lil' Marco Rubio

Rubio was given the high honor of presenting his party's rebuttal to the Barack Obama's 2013 State of the Union address. He was ready, he knew his lines, he looked good. But then something horrible happened—Rubio got a little thirsty. By some twist of fate, the only liquid available to him was a comically small bottle of water seemingly miles out of his reach. But he went for it. Rubio needed a drink. 

Then, Rubio took what must be the smallest sip of water ever taken in history. All while not breaking eye contact with the camera. His mojo was broken. The magic lost. No longer was he manly Marco Rubio, standing up for his whole party. He was tiny lil' sippy of water Marco.

Barack Obama faced many trials and tribulations during his presidency. Wars, recessions, crises of all stripes. Many feel Obama will be judged favorably by history, seen as a good leader of the country who made the best choices he could at the time. But one choice will remain indefensible until the end of time. So galling, so gross, so seemingly out of character, it haunts Obama fans to this day.

We're talking, of course, about the time Barack Obama reached his whole dang arm over the sneeze guard at Chipotle and basically stuck his finger in the food instead of using his words to ask for what he wanted.

Yes, we know this is the President of the United States. His fingers probably aren't covered in the same Normal People Germs that plague the rest of us. But still, who the heck does this? It's so rude! Get outta here with your hand! Just tell the workers politely that you want barbacoa and move on with your life. Yeesh, get outta here!
