Here Are All of D.C.’s St. Patrick’s Day Faux Pas This Year

From pints of guinness to parades and green dye, St. Patrick’s Day often gives politicians and those working in Washington ample opportunity to get into the spirit. Although some tried to do so this year, politicians including House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald Trump made some blunders. Here’s a roundup of some of the faux pas and how the reactions unfolded. President Trump and the proverb (that very likely could have been from a Nigerian poem) Speaking at a “Friends of Ireland” lunch during a visit from the Irish Prime Minister, President Trump invoked a proverb. ” As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of that proverb — and this is a good one, this is one I like; I’ve heard it for many, many years and I love it — ‘Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you,’” Trump said. “It’s a great phrase.” But, as some on Twitter noted, the quote sounded very similar to the words of a Nigerian man, Albasheer Adam Alhassan. Trump's favorite Irish proverb that he struggled to read aloud was written by Albashir Adam Alhassan, a Nigerian. https://t.co/sk8yIcRgiD — Fuzzy Dunlop (@BillsNewAccount) March 16, 2017 Trumps #IrishProverb was written by a #Muslim from Nigeria 😀! 🇮🇪 🇳🇬 🇺🇸 🇮🇪 🍀🍀🍀 #StPatricksDay #StPaddysDay pic.twitter.com/CSIOwmyDB8 — Shaykh Umar Al-Qadri (@DrUmarAlQadri) March 17, 2017 "Irish Proverb" me hole. https://t.co/dWLregquCs — mark little (@marklittlenews) March 16, 2017 Alhassan told CNN, “I posted those things when I was back in school, over 10 years ago. I never thought it would get to this level.” The proverb was originally provided by the State Department as a “building block” for the event, The Hill reports. Paul Ryan Struggled With a Pint of Guiness Twitter had a field day after an image of Paul Ryan holding up a pint of Guinness at that same lunch went viral. The beer’s head, which is typically served thick and foamy, appeared to be lacking.

New Google Doodle Marks St. Patrick’s Day 2017

March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day, the traditional feast day of St. Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint. And as it has done in years past, Google has rolled out a special edition Doodle, heavy on the green, that marks the occasion. But there’s more than the color green in this year’s effort. Taking the place of the second o in the Google logo is Skellig Michael, a World Heritage–listed remote island off the Irish coast near County Kerry. If you look closely, two shamrock-shaped animated characters can be seen crossing paths on a hill. Skellig Michael is “home to many species of seabirds — like puffins, gannets, and razorbills — that perch atop the island’s summit,” according to Google’s introduction. There’s also a bit of travel advice from the search giant. “If you’re brave enough to scale the 600 steps to the top of the rocky precipice, you’ll see a magnificent view of the mainland and the Atlantic Ocean from 714 feet (217 m) above sea level.” Besides Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is marked wherever there is an Irish expatriate community, with parties, parades, religious ceremonies and an abundance of the color green.

President Trump’s First Budget Would Gut Funding for the EPA and State Department

(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump has finalized his first budget for the federal government, a blueprint that would make deep cuts in the Environmental Protection Agency and other domestic programs while significantly increasing spending on the military. The budget, to be submitted to Congress on Thursday, was widely expected to cause political pain for Republicans and Democrats, who will have the final say on spending in the arduous budget process. Trump has promised a spending plan that fulfills his campaign promises to boost national security, from spending more on defense to building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Though he repeatedly promised that Mexico would pay for the wall, U.S. taxpayers will foot the bill. Republicans have groused about some of the preliminary plans, including elimination of the $3 billion community development block grant program that’s popular among local GOP officials; a 25 percent cut to the EPA and elimination of 3,000 jobs; and the scuttling, essentially, of a $300 million per-year program to clean up the Great Lakes. Trump’s plan to eliminate community development block grants was dismissed on Capitol Hill by those who remember how a modest cut to the program sank a spending bill not long ago. The United States spends more than half a trillion dollars on defense, more than the next seven countries combined. But Trump has signaled he would make the Pentagon the big winner with a $54 billion boost to defense spending. The State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development faced a budget cut of about 31 percent, according to several officials. Democrats are unlikely to support the cuts, and Republican defections raise the possibility of a congressional train wreck and a potential government shutdown when the 2018 budget year begins Oct. 1. The budget, known as a “skinny budget,” was unlikely to have many of the details expected on Capitol Hill. It will be limited to the discretionary, $1 trillion-plus portion of the $4 trillion annual federal budget that pays for Cabinet agencies and departments. The remainder of Trump’s budget — proposals on taxes, mandatory spending and deficits and projections on the economy — won’t come out until May. Preliminary reports on the budget show some domestic Cabinet agencies, such as the departments of Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs, would see increases, including $3 billion for Trump’s promised wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. People familiar with the budget who spoke on condition of anonymity in advance of the public release say the White House is seeking a 30 percent cut from an Energy Department office that promotes energy efficiency and renewable energy. The office has funded research on projects such as LED light bulbs, electric trucks, advanced batteries and biofuels. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is targeted for at least $700 million in cuts from its current $2.1 billion budget, said Scott Sklar, chairman of the steering committee of the Sustainable Energy Coalition. The Energy Department could see steep cuts for its 17 national laboratories, which conduct cutting-edge research on topics from nuclear power to advanced materials for energy generation, storage and use. Trump’s preliminary budget, delivered in secret to agencies last month, proposes a 37 percent cut to the State Department and foreign aid budgets. Those cuts and others were subject to revision in the back-and-forth the White House had with agencies leading up to the release this week. […]

Snow Storm Hoax?

Blizzard warnings were forecast from DC to Boston, with up to two feet of snow expected “in what forecasters confidently predicted would be a historic storm that would disrupt lives in one of the nation’s densest population corridors.” But was the Nor’easter blizzard all a hoax? National Weather Service meteorologists in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington held a conference call Monday afternoon about computer models that dramatically cut predicted snow amounts. They decided to keep the super snowy warnings […]
