The hits just keep on coming.
If you watched Saturday night’s spectacle in Florida – well, first let me say “I’m sorry” – you might have noticed something strange. Here’s the President:
Do you know what “happened [Friday night] in Sweden”?
Nothing. Not a goddamn thing.
He made it up. Like, completely made it up.
And now Sweden wants some answers. From Reuters:
The Swedish embassy in Washington has asked the U.S. State Department for an explanation of a comment made by President Donald Trump that suggested there had been some sort of security incident in Sweden on Friday.
The U.S. President was speaking at at a political rally in Florida on Saturday when, in connection with the mention of a need to keep the United States safe, he said: “You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden.”
Trump did not elaborate on the Swedish reference, leaving many Swedes baffled.
“We have asked the question today to the state department. We are trying to get clarity,” said Swedish foreign ministry spokeswoman Catarina Axelsson.
Sorry Catarina, there will be no “clarity.”
I suppose laughter is the best medicine when you’re being verbally poisoned and so, in an effort to soften the psychological blow inflicted by the ravings of an unhinged lunatic, here’s Twitter:

And yes, “she” got in on the act…
What happened in Sweden Friday night? Did they catch the Bowling Green Massacre perpetrators?
