The first day of Spring was an occasion for a second St. Patrick’s day celebration in Washington as President Obama and VP Biden greeted Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny for belated festivities at the White House. The Washington Examiner reports, Biden also invited three Irish-American MSNBCers to the annual “Friends of Ireland Luncheon” on Capitol Hill. Lawrence O’Donnell, Chris Matthews and Mike Barnicle were in attendance, reports the Examiner.
We were curious to know if any Irishmen or women from other networks — like Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, John King, Soledad O’Brien, Megyn Kelly or Erin Burnett — made the cut. But, alas, reps from both networks tell TVNewser none of their Irish-American talent was on the guest list.
But CNN was there, as the pool.
