Trump Comments On Female Reporter's Appearance, Surprises No One

Sitting behind the Resolute Desk but infront of the reporters and cameras, Mr Trump suddenly changed tack while congratulating Dr Leo Varadkar, 38, on becoming Ireland's youngest leader, to explain the scene infront of him in the Oval Office.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told the house that Mr Trudeau and his family will be making the trip. "I bet she treats you well".

One Twitter user wrote: "The fact that our President pointed out a woman and called her over to comment on her looks should disgust you". What an inappropriate, disgusting, misogynistic creep.

Perry herself referred to the moment as "bizarre".

"When we went in he was already on the phone but I managed to catch his eye and he called me over".

"We have all of this lovely Irish press", Trump said.

After mentioning all the Irish press in the room during the call, Trump singled out Caitríona Perry, U.S. bureau chief for RTÉ News, asking her to approach his desk.

A possible visit by Trump to Ireland was not discussed, although Varadkar's predecessor had invited the president to visit the country in March.
