MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself..." [approaches iPad on a stand; chuckles as he sees a devilish face superimposed over his own image] "...in the looking glass..."
Crowd: [laughter, whoops and whistles]
MacPhisto: [inhales] "Hello... you lovely little leipreacháns." [sniggers]
Crowd: [laughter and whoops]
MacPhisto: "MacPhisto is my name."
MacPhisto: "I'm Irish, actually."
MacPhisto: "Mac-Phisto, get it? Isn't everyone Irish, who wants to rule the world?"
MacPhisto: [chuckles] "I've a message for you little island people. Build that wall! Build that wall! Build that wall!"
MacPhisto: "Call it a backstop. Call it a peace wall. Call it a border. Whatever – just build it! 'How?' I hear you ask. Just let the passions flow. A little bit of distrust, some bigotry, some jealousy, and watch that wall emerge. In people's hearts... and minds. Brick by brick, prick by prick!" [laughs]
Crowd: [whoops, whistles and applause]
MacPhisto: "And remember, Dublin... it's when you don't believe I exist – that's when I do... my best work."
MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can FEEL THE ENEMYYY! Haaa!"
