    As truly awful as Varadkar is, Aodhán O’Ríordán behaves like an adolescent child. He’s insufferable.
    All the middle class, very comfortably off people I know, think he’s great of course. His virtue signalling rhetoric works a treat with them.
    They’re hypocrites as well.

    In fairness Leo (Forrest Gump) is just doing his job here. It is the role of the Taoiseach to meet, greet and enter dialogue with heads of state. He corrected the Donald on the border/wall slip-up and set an agenda for talks on visas, trade and climate change. That the Donald recognises that we are not the UK is a start and worth re-tweeting.

      All in 30 minutes at Shannon. Sure he’s a right little Superman- not.
      Set an agenda?
      He’s continuing the Enda Kenny ‘VISA issue’ rubbish. Every Patrick’s day we get the same old bowl of shamrock and visa baloney.
      Trump had no time for Varadkar. Never had.

        Remind me again what day of the year is it that Finlands PM gets national press at the white house? Or New Zealands? Every year?

        Didn’t think so.

      It actually was embarrassing
      He corrected nothing
      He sat there waiting for the moment and fluffed his lines
      He actually allowed him to be called prime minister which was an absolute put down
      God love him the Donald walked all over him

        No. He pulled Trump up on the wall troll and ignored the ‘prime minister’ troll. Well played in fairness and I’m no fan of him or his party

    Is he not embarrassed at the million litres of insulating oil contaminating Dublin waterways?

    I’m in two minds about all this. I dislike Trump, think he’s wholly unsuited to being a US President, and would never vote for him. He is saying and doing some alarming and downright stupid things. I disagree with a lot of his politics and world view. I also find him entirely insincere.

    But I’m grand with the people of Doonbeg welcoming him and his family. I get that we like jobs and we like celebrities. In one sense it’s nice that we can be nice and friendly to people that we disagree with entirely. It is easy to welcome people that we agree with or are like us.

    I also see a little hypocrisy in other people around Ireland who may support the US economy and, in many cases, work for US companies sneering at the people of Doonbeg who, sensibly, want to keep a few hundred jobs in the area. And I get that US businesses and people aren’t Trump. Same goes for the many business people and academics who, for example, will engage in friendly relations with the Chinese Government. They’re in no position to throw stones.

      He has already bought the hotel and invested so the jobs aren’t going anywhere. They don’t need to crawl on their knees in their red caps praising a bigot and his idiot sons.
