After Donald Trump claimed there was a tragedy in Sweden, people have hilarious suggestions of what it might have been
First there was the “Bowling Green massacre,” the nonexistent incident mentioned by President Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway to justify the Muslim travel ban. Now Trump claims there was a tragedy in Sweden, which, you guessed it, never happened.
During a rally in Florida, Trump shared his two cents on refugee laws in Europe.
And, in doing so, he noted a number of countries that he claims have been affected by terrorists as a result.
This prompted many to ask questions, including the former Swedish prime minister, who took to Twitter to respond.
As The New York Times points out, he never directly stated there was a terrorist attack in Sweden.
However, given the context and lack of clarity of his comments, it’s easy to see why people were confused. There was, in fact, no terror attack last night, which plenty of Swedish people have confirmed.
But that didn’t stop Twitter from having some fun with the false claim, by making up a series of alternative ideas.
Here’s some of the best of the Twittersphere on the matter.
Chelsea Clinton chimed in with a zinger of her own that had us LOLing.
And some even got ABBA involved.
This definitely feels like an “Error 404” situation.
Sometimes dark humor is the best humor.
This actually did cause quite an uproar.
And, of course, plenty of IKEA jokes were involved.
At least we can all find things to laugh about in all this craziness.
