First it's the bikers, now the Irish. Trump, of course, doesn't do the fisticuffs thing, but he sure seems eager to watch other people duke it out.

Wow -- after Irish PM Varadkar politely tells Trump he disagrees w/his view about Brexit being good, Trump threatens to "do something severe economically" to the EU. Trump then claims "we will have hundreds of miles of wall up fairly soon." Congress has given him $0 for that.

55. He may be (bizarrely) thinking of the Westies, an Irish mob outfit in NYC in the 1960's-1980's..

Their home base was Hell's Kitchen in Manhattan. There weren't very many of them, but they were pretty violent: they supposedly killed dozens of people during that short period. They had an alliance with the Gambinos for a time.

Like the some of the NYC Mafia families, Westies had influence over unions in the construction trades: Trump would surely know of them for that reason, whether or not he had ever encountered them directly.

If anyone here is a fan of Lawrence Block's Matthew Scudder series, Matt's friend Mick Ballou was a Westie. (Ballou carried around a bowling bag for a time, which was rumored to contain the head of a rival he had killed.)

St. Patrick's Day.

Have there ever been Irish mobs? Italian/Sicilian? German? Lithuanian? Egyptian? Albanian? Russian? Moravian? Beninian? Cote D'Ivoirian? and on and on and on.... Undoubtedly.

Do you smear an entire people on a day and at an event to celebrate their heritage?

It's a small variation on his core racism. Race, nationality, religion, gender, economic status -- Dumb Donald simply prejudges all people and drops them into the tiny, fetid pigeonholes in his (alleged) brain.
