Mike Pence Realises Varadkar's Wife Didn't Have Prior Engagement
US Vice President Mike Pence was reportedly furious today at hearing that the Taoiseach's wife did not have a prior engagement during his St. Patrick's Day visit to Washington D.C.
Vice President Pence is believed to have learned of Mr. Varadkar's homosexuality during a visit to the annual Southern Baptist Convention over the weekend. Mr. Pence, a hardline conservative on LGBT issues who once endorsed gay conversion therapy, is understood to have grown apoplectic with rage upon hearing that Mr. Varadkar not only fails to keep a wife - but is in a committed relationship with a male partner.
On an impromptu early morning visit to the Irish Amabassdor's residence, Vice President Pence was said to be extremely agitated. "What brings me here? Well I suppose the company. Or the fresh air? Or that I want another fucking bowl of fucking shamrock? But top of the list would be the matter of your leader not having a God damn wife!"
At the time of writing, Vice President Pence could be heard shouting at the Ambassador: "Don't call me "Mike", you little prick! I'm the Vice President!"
A spokesperson for the Taoiseach refused to be drawn on whether the government intentionally misled the Vice President during his March visit.
