During Florida Rally, Trump Fabricates Terror Attack in Sweden -- UPDATE

The New York Times reports that Swedes reacted with confusion, anger and ridicule on Sunday to a vague remark by President Trump that suggested that something terrible had occurred in their country. During a campaign-style rally on Saturday in Florida, Mr. Trump issued a sharp if discursive attack on refugee policies in Europe, ticking off a list of places that have been hit by terrorists. “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?” Not the Swedes -- or anyone else with knowledge of the truth.

I wonder if Donald could solve actual problems if he ever thought to address them.

UPDATE: Now it turns out Trump was talking about something he heard Tucker Carlson say -- which still wasn't an attack -- Friday night on Fox News, further bolstering Don's reputation as conspiracy theorist in chief. If he won't get a real national security adviser and listen to real intelligence, we are in real trouble here, folks.

there's a big problem with your rhetorical question, kenneth: the word thought, something i'm not convinced the current president is capable of, at least independently.

one town hall attendee this weekend described the past 28 days as being a back seat passenger in a vehicle driven by a drunk driver, careening down the road at 100mph.

I wonder if his is under the influence of something besides his ego.

Even if (or when) he gets a "real" National Security Adviser, he will still be listening to and basing his decision on fake news authority (and fabricator) Fox News.

It seems the walls inside the limited mind of Mr. Trump are making him a pathetic excuse of an US president, that is only capable of expressing his opinions and views based on info from non-reliable sources...
