Trump praises female reporter's 'nice smile' on call to Irish PM
You'll need a shower after this.
During a diplomatic call with Ireland's new Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Tuesday, American President Donald Trump couldn't help but wave
RTÉ correspondent Caitríona Perry over to his desk. It was creepy. It was gross. It was not a good look.
"We have a lot of your Irish press watching us right now," Trump said while on the phone, before turning his attention to Perry.
"Where are you from? Go ahead, come here, come here, where are you from, we have all of this beautiful Irish press."
In a moment "bizarre" fails to describe, Perry explained she was from RTÉ News and that the Taoiseach, a.k.a. the Irish prime minister, should know her.
"Caitríona Perry. She has a nice smile on her face. So I bet she treats you well," Trump replied, in the same way men think they've said something slick, but it's actually greasy and lecherous AF.
Perry walked away quickly, nervously laughing. Here's another angle.
Like clockwork, Americans responded to the video online by apologising for their president's behaviour.

He called you over to look you over. Gross. #EmbarassedForMyCountry— Kevin Chamberlin (@kevinchamberlin) June 27, 2017
Yes. I'd like a huge sign that says "Pardon our mess, we are working on making America kind again."— allison hazell (@AllisonHazell) June 27, 2017
*sigh* The apology tour Americans are going to have to go on after this turnip is ousted is going to be long.— Dane Rauschenberg (@SeeDaneRun) June 27, 2017
We are truly sorry, Ms. P.
I've been stashed in the fridge next to a bag of expired spinach and this is still the slimiest thing I've seen all day. https://t.co/0uUoGufFFj— Half An Onion (@HalfOnionInABag) June 28, 2017
