President of Ireland’s epic Smack down of Tea Party talk show host and Sarah Palin (video)

The new President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins —  a noted intellectual, having written two volumes of poetry — unleashed his wrath on talk show host Tea Party mouthpiece Michael Graham.

Higgins admits to some differences with President Obama, but not concerning health care, stating it’s a basic human need.

After calling Tea Partiers warmongers, ‘whipping up fear’ and ignorant, Ireland’s President then slams Sarah Palin in this epic smackdown. Watch:

Ireland – 1. Tea Party – 0.

      Did you take the time to listen to the exchange? You wouldn’t have posted such a moronic comment if you had.

  • Self Made

    I love how they conveniently edit out the opposing viewpoint. Nothing like a good one-sided circlejerk!!

    This guy can go back to Ireland and stay there for all I care. Nobody gives 2 sh*ts what the Irish “president” thinks, that’s like giving weight to the comments of a JV kicker. Go drink your whiskey and sit in the corner, let the big boys handle our own country. And I don’t know what part of the midwest he lived/worked in, but the midwest I am from doesn’t like or want socialized healthcare. The money that I earn shouldn’t be going to some lazy ass, welfare collecting, baby factory on gubmint assistance. Screw welfare, and screw Obamacare.

    • Fuckyou

      Eat a dick you thick fuck. I truly hope this is meant to be in some, fucked up sense of the word, “ironic”, as there are those who work MUCH harder than you ever will, and are still able not to afford basic healthcare. To think you’re so fucking narrow minded by ignorance to consider that everyone in need of healthcare is bamboozling the system is terrifying. You best get straight with whatever god your worship and pull your head out of your ass.

      • Stop Profanity

        What a fine example of a human being. How brilliant. Bullying folks with profanity proves the old adage: The use of strong language is a sign of a weak mind. I predict your reply will prove my point.

          Did you read the comment he/she was replying to? Seems to me you did some heavy editing in your own mind there.

      • Ole J. Lekang

        Wow, an archetypical american bigot! How interesting! Strange how the norwegian healthcare system actually works by following the selfsame principles you apparantly abhor whilst the american system ensures the safety of the wealthy few…
        Why is the word “socialist” such a scary word for most americans? Or the word “democrat” even…

  • Ken_george

    While this man is in office I would like the UK to become part of Ireland. A politician that tells the truth about the politics of fear. The way things are going we will have similar lies being told by our leadership and Putin just as the Republicans take over in the USA. What will save us from more Nationalism, Militarism and corresponding poverty and fear.

    Yep… the boat to Ireland has space for you all. You don’t like it, LEAVE it.

      I only want people who agree with me to live in this country.

    • TheGinParty

      This argument really annoys me. “Only ignorant inbred redneck fucktards should live here, no room for hearty debate or a wide range of opinions”. Trouble is, it’s a self fulfilling prophecy.
