Trump’s Swedish lie; Hilarity quickly ensues


It’d be funny if he was anything other than the leader of the deadliest nation on earth, intent on looting the poor for the sake of his plutocratic pals and racist puppetmasters.

We begin with BBC News:

During another ferocious attack on the media on Saturday evening, US President Donald Trump cited a non-existent incident in Sweden, baffling many – not least Swedes.

“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,” the new US president told a crowd of supporters at a rally in Florida.

It was not entirely clear which incident he was referring to, as many on Twitter pointed out, including the former Swedish prime minister:

There were no reported terrorist incidents in Sweden on Friday.

Sweden’s Aftonbladet website helpfully summarised the day in news, which included:

  • A man setting himself on fire at a plaza in central Stockholm
  • Famous singer Owe Thornqvist suffering technical problems in rehearsals for the aforementioned Melfest
  • A man killed in workplace accident
  • Road closures in northern Sweden due to “harsh weather”
  • Police car chase through central Stockholm of a suspected drunk driver

More from the New York Times:

Others speculated that Mr. Trump might have been influenced by a Fox News interview of Ami Horowitz, a filmmaker who asserts that migrants in Sweden have been associated with a crime wave, by the correspondent Tucker Carlson. “They often times try to cover up some of these crimes,” Mr. Horowitz said, arguing that those who try to tell the truth about the situation are shouted down as racists and xenophobes.

(Mr. Carlson interjected, “The masochism of the West knows no bounds at all.”)

Mr. Horowitz said, “Sweden had its first terrorist Islamic attack not that long ago, so they’re now getting a taste of what we’ve been seeing across Europe already.”

It was not clear what he was referring to. In 2010, a suicide bomber struck central Stockholm, injuring two people. The bomber, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, 28, was an Iraqi-born Swede who had developed an affinity for Al Qaeda. But that attack occurred long before the current wave of migrants fleeing war and deprivation.

And the ribaldry erupts. . .

A former Swedish Prime Minister quickly took to Trump’s favorite medium to express his bemusement:

Meanwhile, Swedes and their friends have also taken to Twitter, documenting Trump’s claim, using the hashtag #LastNightInSweden.

Here’s one illegal alien apprehended in the act:

Inevitably, a certain Swedish brand served as a trope:
