The Trump Incident: Far More Worrisome Than The Sweden Incident

This post would have a perfect soundtrack if only it was available in a form I could embed. But since it’s not, go here and listen. It says it’s playable somewhere there, I couldn’t get it to play…but you could always go buy it. You can see by the lyrics why it fits so perfectly…except for the part where Abe Vigoda has actually died now.

The other day, someone tweeted a question asking why do all the front pages of mainstream media look like the front page of the Onion. I can see why they asked that, with stories like this one.

In the span of a single sentence, President Trump managed to flummox a nation.
“We’ve got to keep our country safe,” Trump said at a campaign-style rally Saturday in Melbourne, Fla. “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden — Sweden, who would believe this?”
Swedes, in turn, answered Trump’s question with a question of their own: “Wait — what?”

Yup, we have yet another Bowling Green massacre.

You can’t make this stuff up. In an attempt to justify all his anti-immigration policies, Trump tried to say that Sweden had brought in more refugees than anyone else, and had a terrorist attack on Friday night. Sure, they’ve brought in lots of refugees, but that terrorist attack bit never happened. There have been lots of theories as to what he was talking about…perhaps a report on Fox News about Sweden having high levels of immigration and higher crime than previously…or maybe he mixed up Sweden with the Pakistani town of Sehwan…nobody really knows.

You know Trump has no credibility when the former Swedish prime minister writes “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.”

Yup, this totally reads like an Onion story…except for the part where it actually happened. *headdesk* this is going to be a long four years…if he can actually keep the presidency for that long.
