Biden Makes Offensive Jokes About the Irish, Insults Own Heritage During St. Patrick’s Day Address

President Joe Biden spent St. Patrick’s Day on Friday doing what he does best — embarrassing the country on the world stage.

Biden, who is himself Irish by blood, insulted the country of his ancestors as a land full of drunks and common criminals in front of the country’s head of state during a special ceremony at the White House.

The president and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy came together in a moment of bipartisanship to host a luncheon at which Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was the guest of honor. Taoiseach is the Irish word for “chief.”

Biden and McCarthy both have relatives who hail from Ireland. During his remarks at the event, McCarthy joked that a “clash” was imminent between himself and Biden.

“I think you might be able to settle this for us,” he said to Varadkar. “Which one of us is more Irish?”

The joke was met with laughter.

Biden followed up the lighthearted comment by insulting the people of Ireland.

He said that despite being Irish, he has never consumed alcohol and no members of his family have been behind bars.

“When I went over to Ireland, it was a great experience. I had been to Ireland many times, but not to actually look up — to find my actual family members. And there were so many, and they actually weren’t in jail,” Biden said.

Biden then said he located relatives of his in the country who own a pub. He commented, “I’m the only Irishman you ever met, though, that’s never had a drink, so I’m OK. I’m really not Irish.”

Biden’s Friday labeling of the Irish as drunks and criminals was not the first time he has made a fool of himself on St. Patrick’s Day.

Last year, he made a comment that some people across the pond interpreted as offensive: “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.”

And, of course, who could forget the holiday in 2010, when then-Vice President Biden honored the memory of the still-living mother of then-Taoiseach Brian Cowen?

“God rest her soul,” Biden said to Cowen before he corrected himself and stated, “Wait, your mom’s still — your mom’s still alive. It was your dad passed.”

So Friday was basically a standard St. Patrick’s Day for the president. At least he hasn’t pinched anyone — yet.

    ” No members of his family have been behind bars.” Joe Biden made this statement, but by his own admission all Irish are criminals… So, the colliery would be that somewhere in his family background there are criminals. Biden wouldn’t know the truth if it came up and bit him on the nose.

    Joe Biden is in NO WAY considered Irish. He’s a pathologically liar and a pervert who thinks he can insult the Irish people by demeaning them. We ought to send this sissy weakling to Ireland and let him go shooting off his big mouth in a bar. Maybe titty boy prez will try challenge someone to a push-ups contest or offer to take someone out “behind the gym.” The results would be hilarious.
