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?
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?

Didnt you ever play that game as a kid where you mirror EVERYTHING your sib or friend does until they whollop you?

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.
