Joe Biden Cries On Camera During Irish PM Leo Varadkar’s Address In The White House

Mar 19, 2024

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar delivered a stirring speech at a St. Patrick’s Day event in the White House, stealing the spotlight with his impassioned plea regarding the ongoing conflict in Gaza. Varadkar’s emotional address moved President Biden to tears as he quoted Biden’s late son, Beau Biden, and referenced John F. Kennedy’s speech to Ireland on the importance of protecting the weak and small, including those in Gaza. Varadkar’s remarks underscored Ireland’s vocal criticism of Israel’s actions in Gaza, positioning the country as one of Europe’s most outspoken critics. While Varadkar’s words resonated with Biden, they also drew criticism from Irish news editors who accused him of hypocrisy for condemning the violence while maintaining diplomatic ties with arms suppliers.
