Trump Cites Non-Existent Terrorist Attack

Swedes have been scratching their heads and ridiculing President Donald Trump's remarks that suggested a major incident had happened in the Scandinavian country.

During a rally in Florida on Saturday, Trump said "look what's happening last night in Sweden" as he alluded to past terror attacks in Europe. It wasn't clear what he was referring to and there were no high-profile situations reported in Sweden on Friday night.

The comment prompted a barrage of social media reaction on Sunday, with hundreds of tweets, and a local newspaper published a list of events that happened on Friday that appeared to have no connections to any terror-like activity.
What happened in Sweden Friday night? Not much.

Lotsa fake news. Let's see. Last night in Sweeden. Bowling Green massacre. Atlanta night club. Shooting deaths at an Obama speech. The boiling of children in the Upper Peninsula. Timmie fell in a well. Oh, that last one may be true, saw it on TV. Thank goodness for Lassie.

Nothing.

From the Palm Beach Post: "You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible."

So that's the transcript. That's what Trump said. Nothing happened. Trump presented 'alternate facts'. Most people would call it lying.

"Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound," former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt wrote on Twitter.

So let me get this straight: At a rally/circle-jerk where Trump ranted and raved about how he will never let the media get away with "fake news" about him, his policies, or his administration, he told a lie about a non-existent terror attack that he heard where? On Fox (read that fake) News?

And meanwhile, as everyone is distracted by his dazzling buffoonery, the steady march of evil continues apace and the air, water, and wildlife are being deregulated back to the 1970's, and for those of you too young to remember them, the 1970's were ugly as fuck for the air, water, and wildlife.

Trump implies that "last night" something bad happened in Sweden, while talking about the refugee crisis.

The only thing happening in Sweden every night is a lot of blonde folks (obscene gerund) each other because their nation promotes safe sex, and it's either bed wrestling or moose wrangling to keep them busy.

Now you know why I say "Pardon my Swedish".
