From: RTE News Donald Trump needed to see a birth certificate but Irish people wanted to see Barack Obama drink a pint of stout — and he duly obliged. Before thus endearing himself to the Irish nation, there were heart-warming and intimate scenes as the US president and first lady basked in the admiration of the crowds on a surprise walkabout. It was a picture perfect return to the homeplace of his great-great-great grandfather — the village of Moneygall, Co Offaly. In this clip, Obama impresses the pub with his knowledge of stout before that moment of communion — which many in the US and elsewhere have shared — when he drinks with his Irish relatives.
