Apparently Sweden Had a Big Terrorist Attack Friday Night? No, Actually… They Didn’t.

But Agent Orange wanted us to believe they did

If you believe the media in Sweden, Friday night was relatively uneventful. Among the most noteworthy headlines in the country were reports that a popular Swedish singer had technical problems during a music competition.

But if you listened to President Trump on Saturday, it seemed as if something happened Friday night in Sweden that deserved the attention of the world. However, nobody knew what that might be, least of all the Swedes.

During a rally Saturday in Florida, Trump referred to several countries that have taken in a disproportionate number of refugees and that have recently been the target of attacks. “We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” Trump went on to refer to Paris, Nice, France, and Brussels, European cities where attacks have occurred in the past two years.

A spokeswoman for the Swedish Foreign Ministry told the Associated Press on Sunday that authorities were not aware of any “terror-linked major incidents” that occurred Friday night in Sweden. According to the spokeswoman, the Swedish Embassy in Washington has asked the State Department to clarify Trump’s remarks.

Like… what… how…

There can’t be anyone who’s okay with this. Is there really anyone who’s okay with this?

Trump himself later attempted to clarify the remarks, tweeting: “My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.”

He was probably referring to a Tucker Carlson interview with Ami Horowitz. The filmmaker has blamed refugees for a purported crime wave in Sweden and alleged that authorities are trying to cover up the incidents.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, addressing the matter on Sunday, told reporters that Trump “was talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general and not referring to a specific incident.”

Trump’s new tweet came after speculation over the incident he referred to had circulated on social media for nearly a day. Although he did not explicitly say it, his remarks were widely perceived as suggesting that an attack occurred Friday night in Sweden. “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound,” former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt said on Twitter.

Alternative facts? More like… alternate reality…

I’m convinced that the entire administration, including Head Tiny-Hands himself, lives in an alternate reality that we are not privy to. I’m beginning to wonder if Drumpf is genuinely convinced that he’s acting in a TV Show, as opposed to being the actual president of the actual United States in actual real reality…

And that’s not funny.

It’s actively dangerous. This really has to be stopped…

    It’s an article of faith amongst many wingnuts that Sweden is some kind of sci-fi dystopia where feral gangs of Muslim immigrants prowl the streets committing crimes (mostly sexual, natch) with impunity. It’s the poster child for Nordic liberalism, therefore it must be overrun by crazed jihadis, right? The fact that the Swedes think this is ludicrous just shows you how deep the rabbit hole goes. They’re in denial! The police are covering it up! Etc, etc…

    And some people say Trump isn’t really Reaganesque!
