Trump exposes himself to critics again - interrupts phone conversation with Irish PM to compliment married reporter

Trump interrupts call to Irish PM to compliment female reporter on her 'beautiful smile'
While speaking on the telephone with  newly-elected Ireland’s first gay PM Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, President Donald Trump got a little distracted... or should we say a lot..?
The scandal-prone Commander-Chief was filmed as he pointedly interrupted his diplomatic phone call to single out a female reporter in the room and beckon her to his desk.
Telling Mr Varadkar over the phone, ‘We have a lot of your Irish press watching us. They’re just now leaving the room’, footage shows him spotting one of the ‘beautiful’ members of the press and telling her to come to him.
What follows is a very awkward encounter in which Mr Trump says: ‘And where are you from? Go ahead, come here. Where are you from? We have all of this beautiful Irish press. Where are you from?’
Trump interrupts call to Irish PM to compliment female reporter on her 'beautiful smile'
The reporter, who identified herself as Caitriona Perry from RTE, then walks over to the desk and gets told she has a ‘beautiful smile on her face’ by the US president in front of all the cameras.
She then returns to her seat as everyone looked on apparently not sure of what to make of the whole thing.
Ms Perry, who is reportedly married, didn’t seem to mind too much about the encounter, saying in an interview afterwards: ‘Usually we would shoot from outside the window of the White House and that’s what we were expecting today but instead we were invited inside to witness the President’s call to Taoiseach.’

As Mr Trump should have expected, he is now being called out by many who have compared his comments to the controversial 2005 recording of him boasting about ‘grabbing women by the p****’ while he thought he was off-camera.
They have also reminded Trump’s followers of the many women who spoke out to accuse of him sexual misconduct before the election.
Can the man help himself at all?
