Would we be correct in calling this “fake news,” or is it just the usual Trump BS?
While President Trump was basking in his desperately craved adoration from a crowd of about 9,000 fans in Melbourne, Florida he set about to talk about the rash of Islamic terror attacks around the world.
In defending his executive order banning Islamic refugees and travelers from 7 Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., Trump said, “When you look at what’s happening in Germany, when 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 like they never thought possible,” he went on.
And a problem they most certainly are.
That being said, the attack he’s saying happened on Friday night in Sweden… didn’t happen.
He just randomly made it up, because he knew the crowd would swallow it whole.
In the land o’ Trump truth has become subjective.
The hypocrisy is also astounding, as his loyalists scream about the media and the “fake news” out of one side of their mouths, but promote their own falsehoods out of the other.
Trump, discussing terror, seamlessly mentions incident "last night in Sweden".
