Yesterday, March 16, the current occupant of the White House and his chum Paul Ryan put on green ties and posed with Enda Kenny, the Irish Prime Minister.
Trump also read his "favorite" Irish proverb which he declared he always cites. After further investigation, it was pointed out the words actually came from a poem called "Remember to forget," written by Nigerian Albashir Adam Alhassan.
Last week there was the dust up about "the hats." Did you read this? Team Trump offered you the chance, for $50, to purchase a green "Make America Great Again" hat. But it was embroidered with a symbol that has nothing to do with St. Patrick's Day.
The hats had a four-leaf clover — instead of a three-leaf shamrock — stitched on the back. A four-leaf clover is not a symbol of Ireland. It is just a plant.
The hats disappeared from Mr. Trump's online store.
Anyway, I predict more green will be in the news soon. I don't mean just the money Trump "confidante to receive state secrets "and advisor Mike Flynn was paid by the Russians,or other grifter payoffs to Trump and his family or associates.
Look for Trump to leave for Florida for the weekend, after his visit with Angela Merkel today, waving those silver clubs in the air and spending the taxpayer gold.This will be his 5th weekend on the greens of his own Clubs, where his weekends cost us $3 million plus a pop.
There is no blarney to that.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
