Trump Says Islamic Women Prefer Wearing Burkas To Putting On Makeup


Presidential candidate Donald Trump is quite the jokester.

While giving a speech in Atkinson, New Hampshire on Monday, Trump said Islamic women prefer wearing burkas to putting on makeup.

The comment came in the midst of his ramblings on how American foreign policy has destabilized the Middle East.

To defend his argument against US involvement in Iraq, Trump said,

It's worth reiterating that the presidential candidate did not know the proper term for the burka, referring to the symbol of religious faith as "the you-know-what."

Trump continued his commentary with a quick swipe across his forehead, as though to set a burka in place: "I'm ready, darling. Let's go."
