Irish Prime Minister Slams Donald Trump to His Face in an Epic Tribute to St. Patrick (VIDEO)
Irish Prime Minister Gives Trump A Lesson In Irish History…And Immigration
Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny took the opportunity to school Donald Trump on both Irish history and immigration, and, by doing so, openly slammed the president to his face, in public, on television, in what must have been an incredibly humiliating moment for Trump.
Or, rather, it should have been humiliating. But this is Donald Trump we are talking about. However, Donald Trump certainly did react – his anger is clear in the nasty side eye he shot the Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who managed to celebrate both Irish heritage, the rich American tradition of immigration…and put the president in his place, all at once.
This must be what the Irish mean by “the gift of gab.”
Prime Minister Enda Kenny began by saying it was “fitting that we gather here each year to celebrate St. Patrick and his legacy. He too of course was an immigrant. And though he is, of course, the patron saint of Ireland, for many people around the globe he’s also a symbol of — indeed the patron of — immigrants.”
Prime Minister Enda Kenny Drives The Point Home
But that wasn’t enough.
“Here in America, in your great country, 35 million people claim Irish heritage, and the Irish have contributed to the economic, social, political, and cultural life of this great country over the last 200 years. Ireland came to America because, deprived of liberty, deprived of opportunity, of safety, of even food itself, the Irish believed.
“And four decades before Lady Liberty lifted her lamp, we were the wretched refuse on the teeming shore. We believed in the shelter of America, in the compassion of America, in the opportunity of America. We came and we became Americans. We lived the words of John F. Kennedy long before he uttered them: We asked not what America can do for us, but what we could do for America. And we still do.”
And that’s how you do that, folks. Watch Prime Minister Enda Kenny deliver the blow to Donald Trump below – watching Trump shoot him the side eye is worth the view.
