He’s Coming

at

This evening.

The Office of the Press Secretary of The White House announced that, along with taking part in a commemoration for the 100th anniversary of the armistice which ended the fighting in World War I in Paris, France, US President Donald Trump will visit Ireland in November.

Yes.

Indeed.

Quite.

Our thoughts exactly.

FIGHT!

        I found out, via Twitter, how to blag my way through tomorrow, Bertie!

        – “Dublin’s bench will be the difference”
        – “Mickey Harte always comes up with something new in these games”
        – “You HAVE TO push up on Cluxton’s kickouts”
        – “Tyrone don’t fear Dublin”

        I’m still none the wiser but there you go.

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            I think the pressure is all on Dublin unfortunately.
            Wish it was over, pre match nerves well and truly kicked in already.

    1. Et Tusla, Brute?

      The Government. Full of Trump sneaking regarders.

      The Pope and Trump in the same year. We’re mafe up.

      Let’s see if he visits his Irish homestead : Facebook HQ in Grand Canal Dock.

  1. RoShamBo

    Curious timing on this visit. He must be shitting it over the mid-terms on the 6th of November. I imagine he thinks it’s a good idea to do a Snowden on it and get to another jurisdiction.

    1. SOQ

      Yes, all time low popularity rating and impeachment on the cards if the Democrats win the mid terms. Might be a celebration yet,

    1. dylad

      Which brown people? Who has been the most divisive, corrupt, and has potential to cause the most destruction.

  2. Spaghetti Hoop

    The US Irish vote lads…as old as Ellis Island.

    Now should this be a state visit, then protocols apply, regardless of what you think of the man.
    But the fawning and doffing from this land’s chosen will be stomach-churning.
    Broadsheet question: if you are a crafter, artist, performer – would you take the gig?

    1. scottser

      I genuinely wonder if the irish vote is a thing any more? That whole anti muslim, pro israel thing is enough to get him over the line in an election i think. Anyway hopefully our garda security budget is in a deep enough hole that he gets whacked here. I hope some jihadi has the balls and smarts to do him in and sure what better place than here?

      1. Spaghetti Hoop

        Ah scotts, assassination is so 20th century.
        The converse and critique that Trump has created – we are all talking about him – is historic. Who cares what idiot rules America, except the Americans? I would be a stone cold Dev on this visit and strike the jugular over war atrocities, international policy and civil rights at home. I also would remind him that Brexit was a UK decision – uneducated US need reminding that we are a sovereign state.

        The Guard bill will probably be the same as Obama and the Queen of England’s visit. Given the millions spent on the pope’s stay, I would like to see a tot up. FOI?

  3. Niallo

    Odds are he will be in a job by then like as not.
    Perhaps there is closure in the ww1 aspect, with the cold war “over” and all.
    And seeing as we all seem to be rolling up the sleeves for round 3 the way thimgs are shaping up.

  4. Nigel

    Maybe vote for Gemma after all. Spare Miggeldy and give her a chance to speak truth to power and watch sparks fly. Or not.

  5. Ollie Cromwell

    Marvellous news.
    The wokes on here can spend the next two months self-pleasuring themselves stupid virtue –signalling like a red-bottomed monkey self-pleasuring himself.
    And the rest of us can point out how Shannon airport was used for rendition flights by Barry Obama.
    Welcome President Trump.What jolly japes your’re going to inspire for the next few weeks.
    Una Mullally will be dipping her quill in bile as we speak.
    I have the largest bag of popcorn ever ready right now.

    1. scottser

      Rendition flights thru shannon have being going on since gw bush.
      Enjoy the popcorn while you watch ‘deal or no deal’.

  6. Nigel

    Never mind the visit to Ireland – anyone with family who served in the trenches is going to have him commemorating their memory. How nice that will be.

  7. Ollie Cromwell

    The only real question is when Trump tells Liability Leo to jump exactly how high will the clown go ?
    This is Varadkar’s big chance to stop being known as Leo Who ?
    The Donald will have him for breakfast.

    1. Nigel

      Looking forward to some epic grovelling from you Ollie. Crawling to posh public school boys steering your nation to disaster is one thing, you’ll have to get right down on your belly to lick up to the multiple bankrupt racist reality show host. No half measures now, this guy demands dignity shredding levels of personal abasement, but it’ll be worth it to pwn the libs! You’re probably right to see Leo as a rival in that so the back-biting is all part of the competition for his approval Go!

      1. Dog

        that’s not nice. But I suppose you guys would do the same with a Clinton, Aung Sui Kyi other silly approved warmonger

    2. millie st murderlark

      That’s an awful way to go, in fairness. Being eaten by that crass orange racist. Poor Leo. And I don’t even like Leo.

      Not sure I’d even wish it on my ex-bff from primary school, who would wholly deserve such a punishment, but I’m clearly a bigger person than that.

      1. Martco

        @millie I can 100% guarantee you Varadkar isn’t in the least deserving of your sympathy…he’s a classic hits sociopath who has reached his apex…all he is feeling inside is jealousy of Trump if anything at all.

        I read that gossip article the other day about his younger self’s behavioural traits…he treats his own FG interns with the same love & decency

        he’s a silly billy

        1. Martco

          forgot to add..
          it’s inevitable that people in position of power gained are imbalanced (e.g. sociopathic) in some way. Power. I’ve long given up on the notion of someone at the controls who is vocationally driven & cares. I could cut a little slack if something/anything atall positive was achieved by the person but I can’t find a single thing. yer man Callan is bang on about varadwkar- “It was like that when I got here” in a nutshell. all shapes no substance miserable fupp.

        2. rotide

          So you read the uncited, unsourced gossip piece and are treating it as gospel. Iron Clad proof of Leo’s failings?

          You are a silly poo poo

          1. martco

            no @Rotide (& poo to you for the silly poo poo quip)

            I have actual direct experience (the interns) not something I read about somewhere

            you can believe me or not I don’t care

      2. Culchie Bot

        If Trump is racist explain his support from the likes of Candice Owens, Kanye Wets, Blacks for Trump…

        Or would you just rather make lazy, ignorant generalizations ?

        1. Nigel

          First of all explain why all the other people of colour think he’s racist rather than leaning so heavily on the outliers.

          1. Culchie Bot

            Dodging the Question there Nigel.

            As usual.

            Trump is no racist. If you want to claim otherwise provide the evidence.

            Without evidence you’re just another silly billy cry baby liberal idiot clinging to the narrative of the fake news media.

          2. Nigel

            Question answered actually, don’t blame me if you didn’t like it. If the opinions of a tiny fraction of the black population of the US outweighs the opinion of the rest, what does that say about you?

          3. Culchie Bot

            Nigel’s nonsense non-answer.

            Where’s your evidence that Trump is racist?

            Oh that’s right:

            YOU DON’T HAVE ANY!

            (Repeating claims without evidence make you a liar – Lying Nigel).

          4. Nigel

            Oh no the guy who thinks McCain was ‘supposedly’ tortured in Vietnam by Jewish/Communists is demanding evidence! What a great use of time and energy that would be!

          5. Ollie Cromwell

            Nigel you’re such a dull old stick.
            If you were a sambo you’d be a tuna mayo on white but hold the mayo.

          6. Dog

            Weird sambo analogy from aficionado of British “roast beef” sold for pennies in ASDA but hold the roast beef, used Irish machined old horse intestines with Union Jack on packet will fool the largely illiterate market for this product

          7. Ollie Cromwell

            You’re straining the analogy so hard the buttons are popping off it matey.
            Humour ain’t really your gig is it ?

        2. millie st murderlark

          Oh pardon me, I didn’t realise that racism was a term belonging exclusively to black people. We’ll just politely ignore his hatred of the hispanic people, and his unbelievable xenophobia, and support of far right extremist groups linked to the kkk. If you’d rather we can talk about the Omarosa tapes, or the way he historically treats women, or the fact that his entire tenure has been dogged by scandals and failure after failure. I mean we needn’t focus on just the racism, is you want a more rounded critique of a man who is woefully unqualified to hold the office of president.

          1. Nigel

            Wow straight outta the US right Stupid Argument box. We’re going to need bingo cards for this one. This is Ireland you twit we don’t give a flying feck about their parties we’re not invested in their partisan successes or failings or hypocrisies beyond our current interests. This is pathetic. The KKK of today and all the neo-Nazis are full score behind The Donald, and a history lesson would teach you how it came about that the party that freed the slaves became the party of white supremacy and it’s sad but hardly an unprecedented political or cultural shift.

          2. Culchie Bot

            Now Nigel you’re just telling straight up lies.

            “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy. It aimed to destroy the Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state, reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

            From
            https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/132917.A_Short_History_of_Reconstruction

            Typical lefty, projecting their sins onto their enemies.

            Which party ended slavery in the US?

            (Hint: It wasn’t the democrats.)

            Nigel still fails to produce proof that Trump is a racist.

          3. Nigel

            Jusayinlike wants a link will no-one give him a link how is he supposed to know if Trump’s racist without a link?

        3. realPolithicks

          trump comes from a long line of recists, his father was so racist that Woody Guthrie wrote a song about him:

          Old Man Trump
          Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Ryan Harvey

          I suppose that Old Man Trump knows just how much racial hate
          He stirred up in that bloodpot of human hearts
          When he drawed that color line
          Here at his Beach Haven family project

          Beach Haven ain’t my home!
          No, I just can’t pay this rent!
          My money’s down the drain,
          And my soul is badly bent!
          Beach Haven is Trump’s Tower
          Where no black folks come to roam,
          No, no, Old Man Trump!
          Old Beach Haven ain’t my home!

          I’m calling out my welcome to you and your man both
          Welcoming you here to Beach Haven
          To love in any way you please and to have some kind of a decent place
          To have your kids raised up in.

          Beach Haven ain’t my home!
          No, I just can’t pay this rent!
          My money’s down the drain,
          And my soul is badly bent!
          Beach Haven is Trump’s Tower
          Where no black folks come to roam,
          No, no, Old Man Trump!
          Old Beach Haven ain’t my home!

          And here’s one article from the countless ones out there describing trumps racism:

          https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2018/08/15/is-trump-a-racist-you-dont-need-an-n-word-tape-to-know/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.d1c67470977d

          1. jusayinlike

            wow, thanks for your liberal opinions, we’re actually looking for a citation not an op ed piece..

    3. ReproButina

      Whatever brave face Leo has to put on to deal with the orange racist we can be sure there’s not going to be video of him dancing awkwardly in the hopes of a measly trade deal, beamed around the world.

      1. Culchie Bot

        Same question to you Butina:

        If Trump is racist explain his support from the likes of Candice Owens, Kanye Wets, Blacks for Trump…

        Or would you just rather make lazy, ignorant generalizations ?Same question

        1. ReproButina

          If Trump isn’t a racist why did he campaign on Hispanics being criminals and rapists, call a Hispanic judge illegitimate and orchestrate a campaign of caging Hispanic children, hundreds of which are still seperated from their parents?

          Basically, if he’s not a racist why does he keep doing racist things?

          1. Culchie Bot

            Trump constantly points out the criminal gang MS-13 are the rapists and murders. (You fake-news masters disingenuously claim all Hispanics are labelled this way)

            Show us the evidence for your claim that he’s caging Hispanic children.

            And then explain how this is different to what every other administration since Clinton was doing.

          2. ReproButina

            Show evidence for him caging Hispanic children and then show how it’s different to what others have done.

            So you accept that Trump the racist is caging Hispanic children. Well that’s a start at least.

          3. Dub Spot

            if you’re using abuse of kids to carry your twisted message, I think we can figure out the kind of person you really are. You can come off your knees now. He’s gone.

          4. Culchie Bot

            You’re making leaps of assumption there Butina.

            I’m waiting for the evidence that Trump is caging children.

            Previous admins have done so, Show me it continues under Trump.

            Remember the fake news Time cover falsely claiming the child was seperated from her mother who was illegally entering the USA.

          5. ReproButina

            “Just somoeone’s opinion”.

            The usual game plan from the racist-defending, climate change denying flat earthers.

            10 demand a link
            20 ridicule the link and demand another
            30 goto 20

          6. jusayinlike

            digress

            typical.. when your link is rubbish and you’re too stubborn to admit your pockets are empty.

          7. ReproButina

            The Barry Sotero storyline is just another racist lie about Obama but it’s good to see that, rather than deny Trump’s racism, defenders of the orange racist have resorted to poorly informed whataboutery which has already been debunked.

          8. ReproButina

            None so blind as those who will not see. He says racist things. He acts in a racist manner. He endorses racist policies. He’s a racist.

          9. ReproButina

            Jusayinlike, you have a link showing that Obama signed off on a policy of separating Hispanic children from their parents and keeping them in cages like Trump did?

          10. ReproButina

            “Unaccompanied minors”

            “the pictures had been taken while the government was trying to “move those children out of those shelters as fast as humanly possible and connect them with their parents, most of whom were already in the United States.”

            So not a campaign of separating Hispanic children from the parents and keeping them in cages.

            Try again.

          11. ReproButina

            Was it a policy signed off by Obama to separate Hispanic children from their parents and put them in cages?

          12. ReproButina

            You have a link showing Obama signed off on the policy of separating Hispanic kids from their parents and putting them in cages? Don’t see the mention of him signing it off in your link.

          13. Culchie Bot

            So when Obama Admin caged kids was that racist?

            [I posted links as evidence but the mods have yet to allow the post]

            When Obama admin transferred kids to human traffickers was that racist?

            As for the NAACP president: that seems to be just another butt-hurt liberal parroting the (false) narrative.

          14. Nigel

            Like Trump having a few black fans, the failings of previous administrations don’t make him less racist but it is just awesome to see US alt right culture war style bad faith rhetoric being repeated on Trump’s behalf by someone calling themselves a culchie. Culchie war. Especially after the Jewish/Communist Vietnam torture thing.

          15. Culchie Bot

            So Obama is NOT RACIST for actually doing the things (and worse) you’re accusing Trump of doing.

            You are the perfect embodiment of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

            SAD!

          16. Nigel

            ‘A black pastor said something at a funeral therefore Trump isn’t racist’ Jesus feckin Christ pull yourself together Ollie, Ollie are you okay are you okay Ollie, are you at the Picnic with the bad yokes, have you taken a dose of the bad yokes Ollie? There’s a tent Ollie, fnd the tent for people with a dose of the bad yokes Ollie, they’ll help. God Ollie you’re embarrasing everyone.

          17. Nigel

            He’s not. Which makes you guys racist apologists. At best. Anyone here concerned about white genocide at all by any chance?

  8. rotide

    I feel a bit sorry for Leo and co here.

    Trump has decided to go and play golf in Dunbeg and the poor saps in govt have to toe the diplomatic ‘strong ties…historic connection’ etc

    At the moment all thats confirmed is he’s going to Clare, he’ll visit dublin ‘if time permits’

    1. Nigel

      It’ll be great. The pope’s visit mostly inspired the sad and depressing sort of anger because it genuinely meant a lot to lots of mammies and daddies and grannies people love so there was loads of ambivalence, but this could revive the Repeal spirit a bit, and the comedy of all the centre right politicians forced to be polite to a hugely unpopular and unpleasant figure, and the only people who like him will be edgelords and conspiracy nuts and quasi-fascists who are going to get so performatively hysterically happy about the visit they’ll be like the people in the video for Black Hole Sun. It’ll be a spectacle. All in all this could really raise the spirits of nation.

      1. rotide

        LOL

        That’s pretty much spot on. Thanks Nigel, that raised a massive smile and made working today that little bit brighter!

          1. Dog

            I did never know so full a voice issue from so empty a heart: but the saying is true ‘The empty vessel makes the greatest sound‘

          2. Bertie Blenkinsop

            It’s Saturday afternoon so I’ll respectfully refer you to my first response Tony and get on with my day

  9. ReproButina

    Hey, remember when Trump was so triggered by America’s first black president that he spread a lie about him being born outside of America and right wing morons started calling to see a birth cert?

    But, sorry, you were saying how he’s not a racist.

    1. Culchie Bot

      Hey, remember when Clinton’s pal Sidney Blumenthal started the Obama birther story?

      Remember when Obama released a “birth cert”?

      Remember when Trump offered Obama $5 million to release his college records and details of his passport applications?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-lWv0cpCnM

      Remember when Obama ignored the offer?

          1. Culchie Bot

            Nigel keeps twisting history to his own ends.

            Like all deranged lefties.

            Still fails to offer evidence that Trump is a racist.

            Prefers the comfort of lies.

          2. Culchie Bot

            Nigel still fails to offer evidence that Trump is a racist.

            Provide a link or we’ll all know you’re full of poo.

          3. Ollie Cromwell

            Heh,heh,heh.
            Nigel has been furiously Googling all day and come up with nothing.
            The Emperor has no clothes.

          4. Nigel

            The current argument the he’s not racist is ‘but Obama’ and ‘but a black pastor.’ If you need Google or links to refute those there’s no hope for you.

    2. Ollie Cromwell

      I remember when Obama took the pee out of Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner as the moment when Trump decided to run for POTUS.
      That ended up well for the Democrats.

  10. realPolithicks

    I booked flights just the other day to visit Dublin the third week in October….looks like I dodged a bullet, phew!

  11. rotide

    Jesus weekends on here are even worse than normal

    badatmemes is even back.

    Someone asked me a while ago what my definition of troll is. Well Culchiebot is a dictionary definition right there
