Few things are as symbolic of the Irish people and of Saint Patrick’s Day as a pint of Guinness stout, the quintessential quaffer for the worldwide holiday.
While everyone is a little Irish today, it seems that the jovial atmosphere of the raucous celebrations breaking out around the globe is lost on some of the world’s most bitter liberals who still stop at nothing in their quest to embarrass and demean the Trump administration.
These ridiculously petty human beings, keyboard warriors through and through, have narrowed down their target for Saint Patrick’s Day 2017, and it happens to be the foam, or lack of foam, on the top of Paul Ryan’s celebratory Guinness.
“Ryan raised the glass – with a thin layer of foam inches away from the top of the rim – as a gestures of friendship during the annual luncheon, which has occurred since 1983.
“US President Donald Trump and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny were also in attendance.
“‘To what our forefathers have started, and our children will continue. May the light always shine upon them. Slainte,’ he said.
“On Twitter, pint purists ignored his warm words, and instead focused on his poor pour.
“‘In a subtle yet cavalier act of diplomacy, Enda has given Paul Ryan the worst pint of Guinness imaginable,’ wrote Irishman Conor O’Neill.
“‘Just how long has that pint been sat there? I can barely look…’ wrote Neil Wilson, campaigns director for Conservatives for Liberty.
“‘The tremendous amount of real estate at the top of that pint, probably pulled an hour before,’ lamented Boston-based music critic Emily Reily.”
No praise for the positive message that Ryan conveyed. No love for the use of the traditional Irish toast “slainte”. Oh no; the left is far more concerned with finding something to complain about. It just so happens that this time around, it’s the lack of foam in a beer.
