Enda speech defied the narrative
It took Channel 4 and social media for Sarah Carey to discover that the Taoiseach made a great speech in the US. Why the censorship?
I was busy last week. Like most people. I raced between domestics and school pick-ups and meetings. In the background, blipping into my consciousness, were snippets of the Taoiseach's visit to Washington.
As my personality is split between romanticism and pragmatism, I knew what I wanted. Kenny had to go through with the formalities and make the best of it, no matter how vile we know Trump to be.
But my romantic inclinations felt there had to be some opportunity to make a point, politely but with moral authority, that Trump's attitude towards immigrants of all nations - not just ours - was unacceptable.
