Warning: Hypocritical hit piece
The Irish prime minister, Leo Varadkar, who is gay, brought his partner to a meeting on Thursday with the US vice-president, Mike Pence, a conservative Christian once dubbed the face of anti-LGBTQ hate in America.
Varadkar, who is in Washington this week to reaffirm the longstanding shared history between the two countries, brought his partner, Matt Barrett, to a St Patricks Day breakfast at the vice-presidential residence at the Naval Observatory.
Varadkar tweeted that he and Barrett had received a warm reception at Pences home, but in pointed remarks to Pence and gathered media, he also called out various forms of discrimination.
I lived in a country where if Id tried to be myself at the time, it would have ended up breaking laws, he said. But today, that is all changed. I stand here, leader of my country, flawed and human, but judged by my political actions, and not by my sexual orientation, my skin tone, gender or religious beliefs.

Does it feel good?
No one would judge him by his “sexual orientation” if he’d just SHUT UP about it! Sheesh. Or, maybe that’s WHY he got the job? Because he’s a flaming out there narcissist.
Very rude, especially since he had been graciously recieved.
If he's Irish then I'm Swedish.
If I were Pence, I would simply have gotten up, wished the ‘tards a nice day, and left. I bet he could have found a really nice tea shop around there to have a cuppa and a nice pastry to go with it.
A man who unashamedly takes it right up the wazzoo, lecturing Pence on morality.
Ireland is lost.
“[The wicked are sentenced to suffer] just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the adjacent townswhich likewise gave themselves over to impurity and indulged in unnatural vice and sensual perversityare laid out [in plain sight] as an exhibit of perpetual punishment [to warn] of everlasting fire.”
(New Testament, Jude 1:7, Amplified Bible)

I would. God would.
I’ve discovered many Irish words that were shockingly Un-Irish looking. Apparently, real Irish is more than English with a brogue. LOL
the irish voting in this creep.....
They used call it the love that dared not speak its name...
Now it wont shut up
I’m so sick of the Irish. I wish we could build a wall to keep THEM out. We’ve been very good to them for over 100 years and they pay us back with smug arrogance.
And Ireland is getting very chummy with Iran, a state that does not treat its LGBT community kindly.
Gays are so intolerant.
