  4. You are not the only one: #RESIST ‏@adorkablegrrl 17m17 minutes ago @JoyAnnReid @Reuters I wrote on behalf of the US: Dear Sweden, We truly cannot explain, we have zero idea what he's babbling about, either. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-sweden-idUSKBN15Y0QH
  5. The Trump base thinks that nuance is something you find in the deli section at the market.
  6. The 16 Fake News Stories that The Federalist lists falsely equates reporting errors and misinformation with fake news.
  7. :sigh: I was wondering when you would trot out that canard again.
  8. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/sweden-trump-rally-terror_us_58a9a601e4b045cd34c29930 Swedes Disliked Donald Trump Even Before His ‘Last Night In Sweden’ Remarks The president has a history of using the country in his anti-immigrant rhetoric. President Donald Trump seemed to suggest to his supporters at a rally on Saturday that something horrible had happened the previous night in Sweden, when no such incident had occurred. “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump told the crowd, after saying that “we need to keep our country safe.” He then listed a number of European cities where terror attacks have taken place. Swedish media, along with many online, mocked Trump’s misleading statement. Former Prime Minister Carl Bildt asked “What has he been smoking?” in a post on Twitter, while others ridiculed the speech using the hashtag “#LastNightInSweden.” But even before the president made a vague reference to an awful event in Sweden, the Nordic country had an avid dislike for Trump. A Pew Research Center survey released during the U.S. presidential election campaign last year showed that 92 percent of Swedes had little to no confidence in Trump to “do the right thing regarding world affairs,” a higher number than in any other nation polled. [...] Trump previously described Sweden’s experience with refugees in hyperbolic ways to make his case for temporarily banning Muslim immigrants from entering the United States. In an interview last May with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Trump used a line extremely similar to the one said during his Saturday night rally. “Look at what’s happening in Europe. Look what’s happening in Germany. Look at what’s happening to Sweden. They have a small section of Sweden which is beyond out of control, all right?” Trump told Stephanopoulos. In other instances, Trump has said it “wasn’t people from Sweden who blew up the World Trade Center.” Trump also claimed in his book The Art of the Deal that his grandfather was Swedish, but this was later proven to be untrue. The Trump administration put an incident in the city of Malmo, Sweden, on its list of terror attacks it said the media did not sufficiently report. The so-called attack was actually a minor case of arson at an Iraqi community center that police did not describe as terrorism. [...]
  9. EMc2 ‏@Eretria8 5h5 hours ago You know "what happened last night in Sweden"? Swedes slept peacefully knowing their leader wasn't a delusional moron.

  13. Umm, can you show us a quote where he said "free press"? Don't be disingenuous: I think the four major news networks and the top newspaper in the country (as per circulation) qualify as the "free press" and if they don't, I don't know what media outlets would.
  14. Iain MartinVerified account ‏@iainmartin1 3m3 minutes ago Can we all agree that when US President cites a terrorist incident to illustrate his policy it should be real and not fake? #swedenincident
