Pence Moment







Just now in Washington DC.

At the US Naval Observatory.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and his partner Dr Matt Barrett meet with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen.

They were accompanied by Waterford Fine Gael TD and Government envoy to the US Congress to work on the issue of the undocumented Irish in the US, John Deasy (above).

    That’s not Mother Pence. She’s in Abu Dhabi for the Special Olympics and several timezones away from catching ghey.

    Scorn not his simplicity……
    Does Leo believe in anything, is there nothing that he believes in, like LBGT rights say….

    “Asserting religious freedom is under attack, Pence referenced his wife’s decision to teach art at the Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Va., which does not allow LGBT students or families to enroll and won’t employ LGBT applicants. The decision by Karen Pence inspired an outcry among LGBT rights supporters who said the second lady shouldn’t be teaching at the school.”

      If only their mammies told them not to keep their hands in their
      pockets when in company.

        Reading body language: Hands in pocket.
        According to body language when someone becomes unsatisfied with his self image he will put his hands in his pockets. … Generally people put their hands in pocket when they are feel unsatisfied with their looks, clothes or their actions.

        Ha! My mum literally just said that on the phone to me at lunchtime. “Leo used to keep his hands in his pockets before but they must have had a word with him: his partner had them in his pockets the whole time”. She’ll never forgive ROG for doing it in front of the Queen, either.

    Is it normal for one couple to stand in the middle of another couple. Weird. No doubt Pence didn’t want the photo to look too gay.

      Did you mistake Pence for a normal human being?

      Quite understandable though. He almost looks like a real boy.

    Feel sorry for Matt, he isn’t keen on being in the limelight and doesn’t particularly favour official events. Having to agree to one with a known homophobic bigot must be doubly awful.

    What are the white flowers on the desk with the visitor book? I doubt whether they would grow outdoors now with my garden daffodils.
