Hearts all over the world right now are bleeding for Sweden:
“You look at what’s happening,” he told his supporters. “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?”
That was President Donald Trump speaking at a rally for his supporters in Melbourne, Florida, yesterday. The President went on to describe the horror:
“Sweden,” he said. “They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”
Readers, I don’t know about you, but I am so proud of our President, and I am thankful that, even though I voted for Clinton in November, he relentlessly strives to keep me safe from foreign terrorists, drug dealers, and people of a darker skin color.
So, I’m safe, and you’re safe. But what about poor Sweden? Fortunately for Sweden this has been yet another Donald Trump brain fart. Yeah, nothing like this happened in Sweden, thanks to Jesus and maybe Trump. The story from the Fake News New York Times goes on to report:
Henrik Selin, political scientist and deputy director of the Swedish Institute, a state agency dedicated to promoting Sweden globally, said he was puzzled by Mr. Trump’s remarks.
“I do not have a clue what he was referring to,” he said in a telephone interview. “Obviously, this could be connected to the fact that there has been a lot of negative reporting about Sweden, since Sweden has taken in a lot of refugees.”
The country processed 81,000 asylum seekers in 2014, 163,000 in 2015 and 29,000 last year, with another 25,000 to 45,000 expected this year, according to the Swedish Migration Agency.
Mr. Selin completed a study recently focusing on negative news reports about Sweden’s intake of refugees. It found numerous exaggerations and distortions, including reports falsely claiming that Sharia law was predominant in parts of the country and that some immigrant-heavy neighborhoods were considered “no-go zones” by the police.
See? So much for Fake News.
Fortunately Mr. Trump has past experience with Fake News, taking credit for half a basket full of his own making:
We wait daily for another revelation from President Trump. Will the well ever run dry? Does Putin have the Pee Pee Tape?
