America Under Siege: Hair Furor and ‘Last Night in Sweden’

Scarcely four weeks into his four-year term—though I think it’ll be much shorter—as president, Hair Furor  actually held a campaign rally—for an ALLEGED 2020 run—in Florida and used fear and a massive lie in his attempt to keep his followers goose-stepping along with him.

During the rally, _____listed the places in Europe hit by terrorists:
“You look at what’s happening. 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?”
Swedes scratched their collective heads and said, “The fuck?”

It was in Swedish, so maybe that’s not a literal translation.

See, no matter what hair Furor said, nothing happened in Sweden ... not on Friday, not on Saturday. Nothing happened. And yet still, the President-For-Now of the United Sates stood in front of his wee crowd of supporters and blatantly lied ... again.

Now, to be fair, _____ did not say Sweden had seen a terror attack, but he mentioned Sweden right after he chastised Germany, a destination for refugees and asylum seekers fleeing war and deprivation — suggested that he thought it might have:
“Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”
And we all know, no matter what Hair Furor and his minions prattle on about, that nearly all of the men involved in terrorist assaults in Paris, in Brussels, in Nice, were citizens of France or Belgium.

They were not refugees. That’s a lie.

That’s how he wants to run his presidency ... fear and lies ... and, as he told us when called out on the error in his speech, that he got the story from, wait for it, FoxNews. The one news source he relies on reported a Fake News story and Hair Furor jumped on it.

The truth is he's sourced so much fake news he thinks all news is fake.

Please make this madness stop!!
As John Oliver said about Hair Furor (I, too, will not sully your blog with his name) 'He dominates the news like a fart dominates a car'. Ha Ha.
Funny he goes to Florida to do a Rally so he can talk to his peeps. Each trip is millions of taxpayer's dollars. He is on an adulation seeking trip. Has nothing to do with trying to be a president.
Ok, rant over (wait - not!).

Apparently there will be candlelight vigils at IKEA to honour the victims of the Swedish Meatball Massacre. (Saw that on the internet somewhere, LOL)
