Rep. Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts was chosen by his party to give their official response to Trump’s state of the union address. Unfortunately for him, all anyone seemed to notice was the fact that he seemed to be drooling through his whole speech.
Was that drool coming out of Joe Kennedy’s mouth?
Marco Rubio had his awkward pause for a gulp of water. Joe Kennedy had his … drool?
The Democratic congressman’s mouth corners appeared especially shiny during his response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address — and many online were quick to accuse him of drooling during his address. The alternative theory was an overzealous application of lip balm.
“Marco Rubio had dry-mouth during his #SOTU response in 2013. Joe Kennedy has drool-mouth,” tweeted Frank Luntz, the prominent Republican pollster.
