KATE HOEY: Joe Biden cheerfully posed for pictures with an IRA terrorist. Any unionist with an ounce of sense knows he’s NOT their friend


President Joe Biden has already left Northern Ireland. In truth, he was barely here.

The U.S. leader quit Belfast as soon as he could and jetted to where he really wanted to be: exploring his ancestral roots in the Irish Republic.

Biden’s 17-hour visit to Northern Ireland — he may have spent half that time asleep — ended with a speech at the University of Ulster, carefully scripted to ensure the notoriously gaffe-prone premier didn’t make any diplomatic blunders.

The official reason for his Belfast stopover, of course, was to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, also known as the Belfast Agreement.

The visit was meant to feature a presidential address to the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont as well as photographs with smiling politicians.

But it wasn’t to be.
