Leo Varadkar tells Willie O'Dea to "chill" over his new DJ job

Christmas handbags in Leinster House.

SOCIAL PROTECTION MINISTER and Leo Varadkar has told Fianna Fáil’s Willie O’Dea to “chill” after O’Dea took a swing at the Social Protection Minister’s upcoming cameo as an RTÉ radio presenter.

Someone at Fianna Fáil dusted off the photoshop skills with this frankly stunning interpretation of Varadkar, after it was announced that he’s been asked to fill in on a Christmas broadcast of RTÉ’s Late Date.

O’Dea said in a statement that Varadkar has “crafted a role for himself as resident chat show panellist and a sort of celebrity political commentator” but when it “comes to actual political accountability and having a vision for the department he is responsible for, he is nowhere to be seen”.

Leo’s response?

Ouch. He’s stopped just short of shouting “YOU’RE SO EMBARRASSING DAD. GOD!”.

PS. Play Born Slippy Leo, good man.
