WITH ST. PATRICK’S Day nearly upon us, politicians from across the Atlantic are currently on a charm offensive and trying to prove to us just how much they love Ireland. (We see through it, yiz licks.)
Last night, Vice President Mike Pence attended the American Ireland Fund 25th Annual National Gala and delivered a speech during which he remarked, “I literally carry Ireland with everywhere I go.” (Pence’s ancestors hail from Co. Sligo and Co. Clare.)
Afterwards, Pence sent the following tweet.
Many noted the irony of Pence embracing Irish immigrants given his administration’s recent efforts to ban citizens from seven Muslim majority countries from traveling to the United States.
In the wee hours of this morning, Roscommon’s finest Chris O’Dowd decided to have a word with Pence and inform him that St. Patrick’s Day was “anti-him”.
St. Patrick didn’t get rid of all the snakes, eh?
