The annual St. Patrick’s Day lunch at Capitol Hill won’t be attended by President Donald Trump because he is pouting about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

The House Speaker has hosted the event every year and presidents usually attend. In fact, the last president to not attend was former President George W. Bush, who was finalizing plans to invade Iraq in 2003.

Despite what you may think of the war in Iraq, preparing for war is a good excuse for the president to not attend the lunch. Trump has a pretty good excuse because of the coronavirus crisis. But he’s not using it.

Instead, he’s not going because Pelosi is going to be there, which is what a White House official told Politico while accusing her of sowing “discord and disunity.”

“Since the Speaker has chosen to tear this Nation apart with her actions and her rhetoric, the President will not participate in moments where she so often chooses to drive discord and disunity,” the official stated.

“There has never been stronger support in the Congress & in the country for the U.S.- Ireland bilateral relationship,” an aide for Pelosi fired back in response. “One would think that the White House could set petty, partisan politics aside for this historic occasion.”

Twitter users called Trump out for being a whiny little baby.

The luncheon is the oldest bipartisan event in Washington DC, yet Trump is the only one who refuses to attend. It’s not only an insult to bipartisanship, but it’s also an insult to Ireland and all Irish-Americans.
