Donald Trump tweets about St. Patrick's Day, everyone makes the same joke

Donald Trump tweets about St. Patrick's Day, everyone makes the same jokeDespite their best efforts, Republicans' attempts to embrace St. Patrick's Day haven't exactly gone down a storm. First there was Donald Trump's green MAGA baseball cap, then there was his failed attempt to share an Irish proverb, and Thursday there was the not-exactly-positive response to Paul Ryan's pint of Guinness.

Happy Lá Fheile Phadraig to all of my great Irish friends! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2017 And — also as expected — the responses weren't exactly favourable. It took less than a minute for this one to come in, for instance. @realDonaldTrump you know St Patrick was an immigrant right? — Cole Ledford (@ColeLedford11) March 17, 2017 Soon, others were making a similar point. @realDonaldTrump they were once immigrants! Hypocrite POTUS! — Diane Denish (@DDDNM) March 17, 2017 @realDonaldTrump Your great Irish friends who are likely descended from millions of refugees who came to America fleeing famine & oppression — Man vs Pink (@ManVsPink) March 17, 2017 Other people, meanwhile, picked up on the "great Irish friends" part. @realDonaldTrump You have friends now? — Plurnt Parenthood (@JustinCaffier) March 17, 2017 @realDonaldTrump you have no friends. — Mongoindustries (@MongoIndustries) March 17, 2017 Finally, there was this cheery Irish reply. @realDonaldTrump Póg mo thóin  — Nooruddean (@BeardedGenius) March 17, 2017 Translation: "Kiss my ass". Another day, another Twitter fail. WATCH: Sean Spicer just cannot get the Prime Minister of Australia's name right
