BTW

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.

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.”

But what does that mean for Melania Trump? The first lady (who’s apparently back!) kept her water bottle, someone observed.

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.
