Donald Trump DID NOT Call Buddha A 'Stupid Foreign Hippy'

Fact Check

  • by: Jeremy Smith


There is another NOT TRUE story involving "The Donald" making the rounds on the internet stating that Donald Trump called Buddha a stupid hippy. NOT TRUE. The story comes from a known hoax site, but some people don't scroll all the way down the page to see the fine print.

The NOT TRUE story starts with "Speaking in a provincial conference centre in front of a few hundred confused, noisy locals, the Republican candidate accused Buddha of having no immigration policy and not being American". NOT TRUE.

The NOT TRUE story goes on to say:

To deafening cheers from the audience, Trump said: "That pot-bellied preacher of peace was just a stupid, hippy asshole." The candidate then dismantled his comb-over to reveal his bald head and then impersonated Buddha having sex with a Mexican. Trump added: "Who's that one with all the arms that those Arabs worship? And why isn't that guy holding a gun in any of his hands?"
