WATCH: Trump tweets video in honour of Enda Kenny, set to amazingly inappropriate song

Today really is the day that just keeps on giving, isn't it?

First, VP Pence made a statement that sent most of Ireland's tweeters into a blind rage.

Then, our Head Of State Kenny had barely been there a New York minute when he managed to make a remarkable flub.

Then, Trump arrived to tell us all his favourite Irish quote, one which nobody in Ireland had never actually heard of. (The internet eventually sourced it to Nigerian writer Albashir Adam Alhassan.)

And just when we thought Paddy's Eve was all done in giving us this endless tirade of comedy, Trump tweeted this:

That, our dear friends and readers, is a video set to the tune of 'Amazing Grace', a popular funeral song written by Englishman John Newton in 1779.

In the video, the tune is played out with Scottish bagpipes.

What any of this has to do with Ireland is beyond us.

Is it that we've grown so accustomed to Trump's daily misfires that it seemed like today was particularly eventful solely because it was more Irish-centric, or did the arrival of Enda Kenny actually trigger some dormant gene in Trump that randomly assigns cultural things to the wrong country?

We don't know, but we're already dying to see what happens next.
