The Dail’s youngest TD has spoken about being subjected to a “tsunami” of online abuse following the General Election result.
Fianna Fail TD for Dublin West Jack Chambers told the Floating Voter podcast that he was depicted as a legoman on social media.
“It was difficult to get a Tsunami of abuse after the General Election. I've always respected people and I think it's important to respect people,” the 26-year old said.
Mr Chambers also spoke to the team about his views on the Eighth Amendment - and how long he lives in a “red and green house” because of his Mayo roots.
Niall O’Connor, Philip Ryan and Cormac McQuinn also discussed the ongoing controversy stemming from O’Higgins report - and whether Fianna Fail’s victory in the Dáil this week in relation to mortgages is a sign of new politics.
