When reporter Caitriona Perry attended a press briefing with US President Donald Trump she probably didn’t expect it would spark a debate about workplace sexism.
The RTE Washington Correspondent was at the Oval Office on Tuesday to cover a diplomatic phone call between the US leader and Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
But as the two leaders discussed Mr Varadkar’s new position, and the number of Irish migrants in the US, Mr Trump interrupted the call to compliment Ms Perry’s smile.
The exchange on social media has been retweeted more than 8,000 times and has sparked a discussion between supporters and critics of the US president.
Some described the US president as a ‘creeper,’ while others argued his comments were a compliment.
And I just saw this.
I don’t think anyone will be surprised.
