As the United States is heading for elections, Trump supports and anti-Trump Twitterati is busy sharing their opinions. As the air is filled with political thoughts in the country, video of American conservative political commentator and former television host Tomi Lahren is going viral. She posted a video on social media thanking Indians for supporting Donald Trump, the current American President. In the video, she said that Trump is as wise as an owl and in an attempt to reach out to the Indians, she translated the statement into Hindi. Tomi, unintentionally called Trump an "ullu", the Hindi and Urdu word for owl. While it is the right word, in Hindi "Ullu" is colloquially used to refer to a person as 'stupid' or 'dumb'. Her video with the howler has now gone viral on the internet with desi people laughing how the woman, a Trump supporter ended up calling him 'ullu'. Donald Trump's Orange Face Becomes Target of Funny Memes and Jokes, US President Tweets It's Fake But Says 'Hair Looks Good'.
In the short video, she says, "Because President Trump is wise as an owl, or as you guys would say in Hindi – I hope I’m pronouncing this right – President Trump is wise like an ‘ullu’. I hope I said that right." The address to the Indian diaspora did not go down well with Twitterati sharing hilarious responses to the video.

@TomiLahren owl is considered wise precisely according to ancient folklore.
But It's to not Wise to be "Ullu" in India.

People Have a Lot of Ideas!

Why Indians Don't Refer to People as Ullu Unless to Insult:
Which is perfect because in India, Ullu or an owl is used to describe a foolish person.
