A TV presenter in America has mistakenly called President Donald Trump an ‘owl’. Although his intention was to praise him, the talk in Hindi was vomited.
According to media reports, Tommy Lahren recorded a video on Tuesday and put it on social media. In which he translated the idiom into Hindi and said, “President Trump is as clever as Owl (owl) as you say in Hindi, not like an owl.”
However, they seem to have removed this video. He has not spoken anything on this issue yet. The BBC also contacted Tommy Lahren for his response.
Users are enjoying this video which has been widely shared on social media.
In Hinduism, an owl is said to ride Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Many believe that this bird is associated with purity.
It is said that this bird is a symbol of intelligence and ingenuity, but in common belief, an owl is used to call someone a fool.
Tom Lahren is an archaic political commentator. She came into the limelight for her online political comments during the 2016 election.
He has millions of followers on Facebook and often his videos go viral.
Regarding this video which has gone viral on Twitter, a comedian Ali Asgar Abedi has claimed that he did a drama with Lahren using an app named Cameo.
This app pays people to speak whatever they were told.
He told the British online newspaper Independent that a prominent supporter of Trump did not bother to know what ‘owl’ actually meant, but he earned $ 85.
Attempt to woo Indians:
It is believed that Tommy Lahren created this video to try to woo Indian voters.
Presidential elections are going to be held in America on November 3. There are about 4.5 million voters of Indian origin in America and it is emerging as a strong political force in America.
Most Indians generally vote for the Democrat Party. According to the National Asian American Service, only 16 percent of Indians voted for Trump in 2016.
Trump is hoping to get votes of Indian origin in this election.
In September last year, he joined the ‘Howdy Modi’ program in Houghton, Texas with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
At that time PM Modi said, “You can never get a better friend than President Trump.”
Donald Trump has also traveled to India earlier this year. He also went to Gujarat on this tour.
Political experts say that Trump’s attempt to reach Indian voters may bring some color this time.
