A video has emerged of a man heckling Leo Varadkar from a car in Dublin city centre.

The Tánaiste was out for a run along Usher’s Quay near the Liam Mellow’s Bridge when a man recorded him from the driver’s seat of a car and said: “Here, Leo! You’re a p***k!”

In the clip, which originally was shared on TikTok but was since taken down and is now being circulated on Twitter, Leo responds: “How are ya, bud? Have a good day” before jogging off.

“You f*****g w****r,” the man behind the camera shouts after him as another man laughs.

While many social media users found the video to be amusing, others condemned the behaviour.

“Can’t stand Varadkar, I honestly believe he hates working class. Saying that, these idiots shouting out the window are just the best example of gobs****s you could get,” one person wrote.

Another said: “I can’t stand the man but abusing him like this is NOT clever.”

A third chimed in: “Says more about the two in the car than it does about Varadkar. No time for Varadkar, but this isn’t right.”

And another wrote: “They’re so low. I don’t care for him but this is his private time. So out of line.”
