Comment: Kenny lecturing Trump is shameless hypocrisy while we mistreat our immigrants
Enda Kenny is receiving international acclaim for lecturing US President Donald Trump on the value of immigration, but his fine words ring hollow when his Government continues to warehouse asylum applicants in institutions for years.
The Taoiseach should give his speech writers a raise. Having gone to the US a busted flush, after narrowly avoiding a motion of no confidence from his own parliamentary party members, he has returned a star.
In a perfectly pitched speech, which framed St Patrick as the patron saint of immigration, Mr Kenny spoke emotively about the role of generations of Irish emigrants in making America great again.
