Say or think what you will about the Tea Party, say or think what you will about Barack Obama, say or think what you will about a foreigner involving himself in U.S. politics, a 2010 interview between outspoken human rights activist — now Irish President — Michael D. Higgins and Boston conservative radio show host Michael Graham has gone viral.
The website Upworthy posted the audio a couple of weeks ago with the headline, “A Tea Partier Decided To Pick A Fight With A Foreign President. It Didn’t Go So Well.”
The Huffington Post introduces the audio clip with “Leave it to the Irish to teach their American cousins a thing or two about the ancient art of the smackdown.”
Hear for yourself.
