Joe Biden. then American Vice President, Joe Biden with Taoiseach Enda Kenny at Government Buildings in Dublin, June 21, 2016

This afternoon.

In an interview on Midwest Radio….

….the former Taoiseach said he was filled with excitement, joy and gratitude at Mr Biden’s victory. He expects him to have a “massive agenda of restoring some sort of respect for the United States around the world”.

Mr Kenny remarked on the fact that there had been an enormous vote in the US election and suggested this “probably related to the fact that Trump had been very provocative on a number of issues”, which really brought out the “polarised peoples of America to vote”

    I am not convinced he has won the election yet but Biden would be good for Ireland- he is a GFA defendant which is exactly what is needed.

    Was he not involved in it in some way?

    Kenny’s vocabulary is awful. Made far worse by constantly trying to sound like he’s got a wide vocabulary. Comes across like a buffoon just tryna get away with it. Which he did. Because most Irish people are a bit thick. There’s a reason why “paddy irishman” was the butt of those jokes.

    I wonder if Mary-Lou’s advocacy of Biden has anything to do with the fact that Biden:

    once described Britain’s position in Northern Ireland as “absolutely outrageous”
    stood against the deportation of IRA suspects from the US to Britain and spoke about the threat to the civil liberties of the IRA killers if they were ever returned to Northern Ireland
    Lobbied John Major for a US Visa for Gerry Adams
    Liked to be photographed with fugitive killers
