Leo Varadkar has a 'World's Best Taoiseach' mug and there are so many questions

What next?

IT’S BEEN NOTED by many in recent months that Leo Varadkar’s tenure as Taoiseach has had a very Justin Trudeau vibe to it in terms of some of the little stunts he’s been pulling off on social media.

A few weeks ago, a ‘Mr Taoiseach’ mug was spotted on his desk – and that’s become even more relevant this morning.

Why? Well, before addressing the media on the Brexit deal that was agreed this morning, the Taoiseach’s account tweeted out this update

Yes, that is a “World’s Best Taoiseach” mug he’s drinking from there

Technically speaking, that is an accurate statement as he’s the only one. But that would also make him the world’s worst Taoiseach as well. That’s hardly mug material though.

Within minutes, people had spotted the mug

Along with the fact that Coveney is reading yesterday’s Irish Examiner

The public really want to know what the craic is with the mug

Some key questions remain:

  • Is this the work of the famed Strategic Communications Unit?
  • If it is, do they have a ‘mug unit’ within to brainstorm cup-based ideas?
  • Are mugs now replacing socks as the Taoiseach’s present of choice? This is especially important given we’re in the run up to Christmas.
  • Will Justin Trudeau be receiving a “World’s Best Canadian Prime Minister” mug in the near future?

Another notable owner of a “World’s Best” mug? Michael Scott from The US Office
