Wow, is there anything President Trump can’t do? First, the media attacked him for falsely saying there was a terrorist attack “last night” in Sweden (he actually said no such thing, and he claimed the reference to “last night” just meant that he’d seen a TV report then about the spike in rape and other crimes in Sweden since the big influx of migrants, which is true). The media barely had time to accuse him of making up fake news (and that’s their job!), when a riot in an immigrant community in Sweden inconveniently broke out the next night, with 10 cars burned and police injured. Some wags suggested that Trump must be psychic, or have a magic TV that lets him see tomorrow’s news today.

But the New York Times has another explanation: Trump caused that riot in Sweden! Their story on the riot claimed that his “antagonizing” comments “were greeted with anger in Sweden,” resulting in a violent clash between masked men and police.

It’s not exactly clear how the New York Times reporters could possibly know the motivations of some anonymous, masked rioters over 3900 miles away, or why anyone in Sweden would want to attack police officers, riot and commit arson just to demonstrate how wrong Trump was for allegedly accusing them of being violent. It’s just one of those things that only the superior intellects at the New York Times can understand. Say, maybe they’re the ones who are psychic!

Please leave me a comment.  I read them!

    These people are so full of themselves they're starting to believe their own fake news. I think we should just listen to Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and whatever other conservative news outlets we can find and forget about the Clinton News Network and all the other fakers. They haven't come up with anything real or original in YEARS.

    I am Swedish living in Maryland. I read the news from Sweden online. The day after the riots had happened in Rinkeby (suburb of Stockholm) the news site (which is the most conservative national newspaper) wrote that the riots started because of police men trying to arrest one man for drug charges. This happened in the subway station and soon after the "protests" started.

    That is exactly what I posted on Facebook. I predicted, after that riot broke out, that Trump would be accused of inciting this riot. The MSM is so predictable.

    Fake news are imaginary stories that are made real by the Mainstream Liberal Media ...

    Surely you predicted this exact response from the press as soon as news of the riots was released. I did.
    For the most part, supporters of this administration are NOT boisterous, obnoxious and annoyingly closed minded. We are out there and we are mighty in number, but it's easy to become disheartened by incessant, exclusive media coverage of the opposite point of view. I believe much prayer resulted in a conservative victory and we will endure and succeed. Thank you for being such a significant link to the reality of the situation. :)

    I remember a day when the power of the press meant there was a breaking story vetted in truthful and responsible journalism. News saddened me, inspired me, excited me, and sometimes swayed me to view the world and the people in it in a way I hadn't thought of before. Today, the power of the press is something entirely different. Journalism today is still powerful, but it is filled with biased, tainted, untrustworthy, and irresponsible opinions of its authors and publishers who abuse their power to promote biased agendas. Editorial and deeply heated opinions of newspapers and the media are no longer presented as such, but as "breaking news". The news media outlets are yielding a dangerous sword to sway the masses by invoking the emotions of the public rather than the use of their brains. That sword is sharp and it is dividing this country and its people. The media outlets are misusing their power and liberties and contributing to the social implosion we are seeing today. The media is promoting the ongoing disparaging of our President, supporting individuals breaking the law, allowing immoral minority thinkers the power over the majority, and they justify the evil agendas of a few presenting them as good. Aren't we, the American people, better than this? There is a bigger truth here, however, and that is we all have the same power the press has in the way we use our own personal social media, and unless we start using it responsibly, teach our children to use it responsibly, and hold each other accountable for doing the same, we will implode as a people. All forms of media has no accountability and that, my dear friends, in my opinion, is the root of our problem.

    He is the new scapegoat .. no matter what he does or does not do .. they will find fault in him.

    I don't know what their reasoning is for a multi millionaire.. giving up his privacy and spending countless hours, including weekends.. trying to straighten out the mess our country is in.. for no pay..

    The main thing President Trump is doing is upsetting some apple carts. He just doing what he said and many can't handle that. Go Prez.
    By the way Mike when are u coming back to Cornerstone Church in Nashville?

    Basically, these are all those who thought that whatever they wanted was right and everyone else should go along with them. Trump won. You are seeing the fallout of "yes, Snowflake, there are consequences to being the center of your own universe to the detriment of others."

    This is hilarious....what lengths will they go to to make out president "the bad guy". Thank you, Mike, for all of your posts. I really feel as though your posts and info are the only "real news" I can get nowadays, although Fox News is pretty good.
