Donald Trump as a Buddha

Donald Trump Buddha statue

So this is without doubt one of the weirdest issues I’ve seen shortly.

I stumbled throughout a story from two years in the past a couple of Trump Buddha statue that was on sale in China. A 5-foot tall ceramic statue of Trump because the Buddha was being bought on Chinese language buying platform Taobao for $153. There additionally appear to have been plans for a 14-foot tall model that might value consumers $613, though I’m unclear whether or not that truly got here to fruition.

The vendor stated that the concept of the Trump Buddha statue reminded him of Trump’s slogan of “Make American Nice Once more” and the previous US president usually claimed he knew issues higher than anybody. So the vendor tailored the concept into one thing auspicious for Chinese language corporations: “make your organization nice once more.”

Some Buddhist teachings say that every one beings have the potential for enlightenment, and in my very own struggles to discover a spirit of kindness and compassion for Donald Trump (let’s simply say he’s not one in every of my favourite folks) I typically did think about him as a Buddha. To be clear, I wasn’t visualizing him as he’s now however showing as a Buddha: I imagined him having linked with and developed his personal potential for knowledge and compassion.

This wasn’t the one apply I did involving the previous president. I hope to share one other article with you in some unspecified time in the future, however I’m hoping it’ll be printed exterior of this weblog.

If $153 to $613 is a bit steep for you, you is likely to be keen on one other of Taobao’s prime sellers: a Trump bathroom brush. It’s extra modestly priced, coming in a pack of three for simply $2.
