Joe Biden touched down on Irish soil yesterday, with the US President set to spend a few days taking in various stops around the island.
He began his trip in Belfast, before making his way to Louth and Dublin yesterday. He will have further engagements in the capital later today, before making his way out west to visit Mayo tomorrow.
Plenty of onlookers have made their way to see Biden during his various engagements so far, with the trip being largely a success up to this point, even accounting for his 'black and tans' gaffe yesterday.
However, not all are impressed with the way he has conducted himself.
GB News unhappy with Joe Biden conduct in Ireland
GB News are never ones to miss an attitude to rile up those possessing a 'little Englander' attitude, with Joe Boden's visit to Northern Ireland the perfect opportunity to do so.
In a remarkable segment on the channel last night, they hammered the President for his conduct in Belfast, including what they considered to be numerous slights directed at British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. They would go on to state that he 'hates' the UK and only cares about his Irish roots.

For all the British folk who loudly celebrated the demise of Donald Trump, how do you feel now that we've got an avowed anti-British president in the White House? If anyone was in doubt that Joe Biden had a deep hatred of the UK, especially the English and royal family, then today just proved it.
US officials ensured that the position of Biden's best vehicle meant TV cameras were blocked from Rishi Sunak greeting him as he touched down in Belfast for his 15 hour visit, of which he would spend half of the time sleeping.
Then he would appear to push past Sunak, which is very odd. Then there was the decision to downgrade a planned bilateral meeting with Sunak into what's been dubbed a 'bi-latte', a pathetic coffee in what looked like a hotel lobby with no press conference.
When Biden did speak, there were few kind words about the special relationship with the UK, but as ever, a lot of chat about his Irish roots...
Biden's 2008 autobiography revealed that his family held onto 'Irish grudges' Biden's aunt Gertie once 'your father is not a bad man, he's just English'. When meeting the late Queen for the first time in 1982, his mother gave him one piece of advice: 'don't you bow down to her'.
Talk about a chip on the shoulder.
They would also have former DUP leader Arlene Foster on the show, who shared her belief that Joe Biden 'hates' the United Kingdom.
The list goes on and on in relation to his dismissal to the British people living here in Northern Ireland.
He revelled in the fact that he told a story about his mother refusing to sleep in a bed because the late her majesty the Queen slept in the bad.
He is the most partisan President there has ever been when dealing with Northern Ireland. He hates the United Kingdom, I don't think there's any doubt about that.
Another balanced take.
We're sure there will be plenty more similar opinions given over the next couple of days.
