US president Donald Trump recently halted a telephone call with Irish Prime Minister (known as a “Taoiseach”) Leo Varadkar to flirt with an Irish reporter.
According to reports, they were discussing on a range of issues from migration to Brexit when Trump seems to become distracted by Ms. Caitriona Perry, Washington correspondent for RTE, Ireland’s National Television and Radio Broadcaster, who was covering the call.
She posted the moment Mr Trump interrupted his call to comment on her “nice smile”.

“Well, we have a lot of your Irish press watching us,” Mr Trump says, before spotting Ms Perry. “And where are you from?” he asks, motioning her to come closer.
“Go ahead. Come here, come here. Where are you from? We have all of this beautiful Irish press.
“She has a nice smile on her face so I bet she treats you well,” he says with a smirk, before Ms Perry scuttles away.
In an Instagram post, Ms Perry described the introduction as “one of the more bizarre moments of my time as RTE Washington Correspondent”.
Her followers sent messages of concern following the post, some asking “was that uncomfortable”?
