St. Patrick’s Day: March 16, 2018

Dear Mr. VP,

This year, your St. Patrick’s Day breakfast with the Irish head of government will be closed to the press.

Last year, when the former Irish Prime Minister visited the United States, you had an open meeting, with press coverage.

What could be different this year?

Hmm.

Well, the new Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar is gay, and said he’s planning on bringing up LGBT issues.

That seems like the difference to me. I don’t know why you’d suddenly be shy about spouting your homophobic bigotry to the world,  but perhaps you don’t want to be seen openly confronting a gay man.

To be a fly on the wall.
