Despite media headlines to the contrary, Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump did pay their bar tab in Ireland and were lauded by locals as “so nice.”

Townhall reports:

And we wonder why President Trump feels compelled to publish tweets like this.

Trump didn’t mention a specific media fabrication in that message, but I can note a recent one that occurred during his trip abroad. He and his family were in Ireland over the weekend as Trump met with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar about Brexit and other pressing issues. One night, Donald and Eric were enjoying a bar crawl and picked up the tab for some of their new friends at the Igoe Inn Bar & Restaurant in Doonberg. According to some media reports, the pair never paid the bill.

Those media outlets apparently never contacted the restaurant itself. On social media, the establishment explained that the Trumps didn’t have cash on them at the time they ordered customers a round of drinks, but they made up for it a couple of days later and absolutely did not make Igoe foot the bill.

Watch this clip of the Trump sons at the pub:

The Irish Mirror has more:

Donald Trump’s sons ordered rounds of drinks for ecstatic locals in Doonbeg – and helped out by pulling the pints.

Eric, 35, and 41-year-old Donald Jnr went on a surprise pub crawl in the Clare village and served dozens of gobsmacked punters.

The pair got a warm welcome from the 754 locals of Doonbeg, Co Clare.

Caroline Kennedy, owner of Igoe bar and restaurant told the Irish Mirror: “I did have a sore head and I’d say there were many others too but you know what, it was a great occasion.

“It was certainly worth it. I think they’re absolutely loving here.

“They’re loving the reception they are getting. When they came into the pub they said they wouldn’t get this welcome in New York.”

“They were so lovely and down to earth and gave a great hello to everyone. I said, ‘Come on lads you have to come in and pull a drink’ so they did.

“They were so nice, they came into the restaurant and the local priest Fr Haugh presented them with a picture of the two castles of Doonbeg.

“They thanked everyone for their support and for coming out to meet them and said there was a drink for everyone in the house and it was their small gesture.”

. . . . Paschal Carville, 26, is nicknamed Trump back in Armagh because of his hairstyle. He told the Irish Mirror: “I told Eric people tell me I look like his father and he said, ‘I see that look in you.’

“My name is Trump because people say I look like him. I’m very happy about it. The hair sets the tone.

“I’m down to see Trump, we travelled from Armagh. I just wanted to come down and see him. Everyone thought I was mad.

“I travelled with my father, we managed to get into the town.

“I like what Trump does, he says it how it is and I’m just a fan.”

Is anyone really surprised the leftstream media got this story wrong?  If the word “Trump” appears in any “news report,” it’s probably a good idea to be a bit skeptical.
