The only thing liberals hate more than white people of European descent it is President Trump, which makes their outrage over his dealings on St. Patrick’s Day disingenuous even for them. Because the lefties have a pathological need to slam Trump at every turn, they are suddenly concerned that he is showing disrespect for the Irish, who liberals would normally wouldn’t consider to be part of the permanent victim class.
This is how bad the Trump “Resistance” has become. Multiple liberal media sources are completely bent out of shape over the way Trump and the Republicans celebrated St. Patrick’s Day.
The Huffington Post went nuts because Trump shared a proverb that may or may not be Irish:
President Donald Trump lauded America’s ties to Ireland by quoting one of his favorite “Irish” proverbs ― except that it probably wasn’t Irish at all.
Standing alongside Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny at the Friends of Ireland luncheon in Washington, D.C., on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, Trump said that “as we stand together with our Irish friends” he was “reminded of that proverb” he’d heard “for many, many years and I love it.”
“Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue, but never forget to remember those that have stuck by you,” recited Trump. “We know that, politically speaking.”
The HuffPo pointed out this line may have come from a Nigerian poet, but also that a Google search turns it up as one of the top results for famous Irish proverbs. The biggest thing here is that Trump never actually called it an “Irish proverb” so maybe the liberals can relax and move on to something else.
Salon had a shit-fit because Speaker of the House Paul Ryan toasted the the Irish Prime Minister with a pint of Guinness beer:
At the end of his speech, Ryan pulled a out a pre-poured pint of Guinness, raising his glass in a toast to the Irish.
“To what our forefathers have started and our children will continue, may the light always shine upon them,” he said. “Sláinte.”
Though the language in the toast was technically correct, it was the beer itself that had people talking.
As all Guinness enthusiasts know, a proper pour of Guinness should always be topped with a thick creamy foam.
The Washington Post took issue with something Vice President Mike Pence said when he greeted the Irish Prime Minister, likening it to a racial slur:
The day began with a cringe-worthy, mildly offensive Irish cliche in front of a roomful of Irish people, and it all went downhill from there.
“Top of the morning,” said Vice President Pence, as he hosted Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny at his residence for breakfast Thursday.
Time had a problem with many of these “outrages” and took a step further with this complaint:
Melissa McCarthy could have more fodder for a Saturday Night Live appearance. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer wore a kelly-green tie to his daily press briefing Thursday…
Holy Shit! You mean to tell me that someone wore green on St. Patrick’s Day? Have you ever been so furious in your life?
The narrative they are trying to put out there is that Trump and the GOP are hostile to and racist against the Irish. What this pathetic display shows is that liberal media will sink to any level in an attempt discredit and destroy Trump and the Republicans. Making it even more pathetic is that they think this is an effective way to take Trump down.
