Pence see, Pence do.
During a meeting Wednesday, President Donald Trump moved his water bottle from the table to the floor. Without skipping a beat, Vice President Mike Pence, sitting to Trump’s right, did the exact same thing.
“There was zero hesitation from Pence,” a Reddit user said. “It’s like they rehearsed it.”
A video clip of the bizarre, seemingly choreographed action quickly went viral—and people had questions.
Why did Pence do this?— Rogue NASA (@RogueNASA) June 7, 2018
Is it some code?
What does it all mean?
Was there no more room at the table for the water bottle?
SO MANY QUESTIONS.https://t.co/dwKobFReay
A secret code, at the end Trump places the napkin on his lap. Kind of signaling something to somebody?— Willie Quaglio (@FIXINUSA) June 6, 2018
Didnt you ever play that game as a kid where you mirror EVERYTHING your sib or friend does until they whollop you?— Barbara (@bigskybabs) June 6, 2018
One Reddit user had a more rational theory, Business Insider reported.
“If I had to guess, I’d say they were getting ready for a photo,” the commenter said. “Move the water bottles down just to make things look more professional. Makes for a cleaner looking picture.”
Pence and the Trumps’ meeting Wednesday was at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s headquarters, where officials were briefed on what’s expected to be a heavier than normal hurricane season. There’s no word yet on when we can expect the next water bottle ballet.
