US President Donald Trump is unlike any other President that America has ever had, and he proves this time and again by his actions. US President Donald Trump recently called Ireland to congratulate the newly-elected Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar from the Oval office. Members of Irish media were also present during the call and were all geared up to jot down and record what transpires between the two leaders. However, what they witnessed was not something on the agenda. The POTUS interrupted the conversation for a bizarre reason. Leo Varadkar is the youngest-ever and first openly gay leader. Irish PM Leo Varadkar is of Indian descent and has a Hindu Indian father and a Catholic British mother. Donald Trump singled out a female reporter and halted the call with the Irish PM Leo Varadkar to compliment her for her smile.Also Read - PM Modi, Mamata Banerjee, Adar Poonawalla on Time Magazine's 100 ‘Most Influential People of 2021
Donald Trump while on call told Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, “We have a lot of your Irish press watching us right now. We have all of this Irish, beautiful Irish press here.” He soon singled out a female reporter and asked her to come forward and asked her, “Where are you from? Come here, come here.” Caitriona Perry, the journalist is a Washington correspondent for RTE, as she gave her introduction, Donald Trump went on to inform the Irish PM. “She has a nice smile on her face so I’m sure she treats you well.” Although the journalist at the time laughed it off but it soon gave Donald Trump another negative publicity. While she was at the Oval Office and surrounded by cameras and other members of the press she laughed it off but later took to Twitter to tweet out a video and call it a bizarre moment.

This behavior of POTUS is testimony to the amount of objectification and harassment women face daily. A woman always has to fight to get her place in the sun. If she is good at her job then she has to be beautiful and presentable too to get the top spot. However, this attitude and behaviour from a world leader is totally despicable.
