Ireland 'pimped out like prostitutes' to 'war criminal' Obama

Video: Addressing Taoiseach Enda Kenny on Wednesday, Clare Daly TD was harshly critical of Ireland’s “unprecedented slobbering” over the Obama family during their visit to Ireland during the G8 summit. Ms Daly described Barack Obama as a “war criminal” and said Ireland was “pimped out like prostitutes” during their visit.

Daly described the “sycophantic fawning over [the Obamas] by sections of the media and Irish politicians”. “Is it not a reality that you have showcased us as a nation of pimps prostituting ourselves in return for a pat on the head?” Daly asked rhetorically.
