WATCH: Sean Gallagher's 60-second presidential pitch is not getting the reaction he would have wanted

There's no kind way to say this.

Sean Gallagher is running for president of Ireland, but his most recent appeal to the public has fallen somewhat flat.

On October 26, Irish people will go to the polls to decide on their president for the next seven years. Gallagher ran Michael D. Higgins close in 2011, and hopes to go one better this time around.

Over the weekend, after a similar video from the current incumbent Michael D Higgins, RTÉ published a 60-second pitch by Gallagher on why he should be president, and to say that the video rambles would be pretty generous.

Quotes like "we soared above giants in Croke Park" and "I, like many, have overcome adversity, but that is not my story, that is your story" just didn't really make any sense, and people have not been forgiving.

Unfortunately for Gallagher, social media has been particularly savage in its treatment of the video.

Later this month, Gallagher will appear on the ballot alongside the incumbent Higgins — as well as Sinn Féin MEP Liadh Ní Riada, Senator Joan Freeman, and other businessmen and reality TV personalities Gavin Duffy and Peter Casey.
