Did You Hear The Alt-News About Sweden? | Filosofa’s Word

There are sure to be some trusting souls who believe in the President’s reference to a recent terrorist attack in Sweden. But the statement was inaccurate, a gaff, a version of alternate news, or just plain ol’ fake news. If anyone is still confused, Jill Dennison has done an admirable job of double-checking the alternative vs. reality versions of the so-called event…

“Did you hear about the terrorist attack on Sweden last Friday? If we had waited for the mainstream media to tell us about it, we still wouldn’t know.  But, since according to Representative Lamar Smith of Texas, we should get all our news directly from Trump, we now know about the attack.  Thank you, Donnie T. for the enlightenment!  Only one problem … there was no terrorist attack on Sweden on Friday … or any other time, for that matter…”

Still don’t believe Number 45 misinformed his audience yesterday afternoon? Then Google “terrorist attack Sweden 2017” for yourself.

Be aware. Be fair.

    I have read about it!?… Quite surrealistic (literally speaking)… the best thing (at least the funniest was the swedish Prime Minister´s response suggesting Trump was high at the moment he mentioned it!.
    Also I just found this tweet which kind of speaks for itself, right?… (Oh those Kids as politicians!) . Best to you dear JoAnn! 😀

    Here it is.

    LONDON — President Trump escalated his attack on Sweden’s migration policies on Monday, doubling down on his suggestion — based on a Fox News report — that refugees in the Scandinavian country were behind a surge in crime and terrorism.

    Who else can he “piss off” with lies? I honestly cannot believe this charade can go on much longer!!!!

    Then I read he repeated his egregious gaffe the next day. He is truly “out of control” now.

      Your kidding! I heard he blamed FOX News. Doesn’t the guy have a staff to double-check his sources?

    USA Today (who posted this video) has a sister ship right there in Brevard County, Florida Today. I can’t find where FT covered Trump’s Sweden fantasy – can anyone else?
