False
By Internet standards, this quip about political correctness is nearly ancient. Versions of it dating to 2006 and 2007 are easily located, attributed at least twice to students of Texas A&M University. It surfaced again in a 2012 Townhall column that lauded it while also describing it as an "old Internet joke". Although the joke's origins may be murky,
the anachronisms involved in attributing it to President Truman are obvious.
