I have made no public comment on the Brian Stanley tweets but listening to Mary Lou McDonald this morning equivocating & justifying glorification of violence, latent homophobia & internal party intimidation is truly nauseating. This is not the kind of change Ireland needs, ever.

Tanaiste Leo Varadkar responds to Claire Byrne’s
interrogation interview with Mary Lou McDonald where the Sinn Féin President addressed the Brian Stanley tweet controversy.
As a gay man I’m ashamed of the toxicity you’ve brought to Irish politics. How you exploit homophobia for political advantage has a real life damaging effect on the lives of LGBTQI+ people. When you tried to oppress us from the safety of your closet, that was homophobia. #resign
