Ireland’s PM takes Trump to school on the true meaning of America

On Friday at the White House, with Trump standing next to him, this is what Prime Minister Enda Kenny said :

” It’s fitting that we gather here each year to celebrate St. Patrick and his legacy.  He, too, was an immigrant.  And though he is of course the patron saint of Ireland, for many people around the globe, he is also a symbol — indeed, the patron of — immigrants.  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.”

  2. Disgrace

    It’s such a disgrace to see all of the Irish surnames in this White House. The Prime Minister of Ireland’s undressing of President Trumpovitch was welcome relief.
