Fourhundred and twenty-eighth Asic- True or not, that’s the question, Mr President! Part 3

As you all know by now…President Trump has been to Florida, speaking to ”the People” about Sweden… I live in Sweden, an open democracy far away from the USA. In fact it is so far away that Mr Trump hardly knows for sure by himself whether we had a terror act here or not yesterday… We didn’t…

I wrote about this yesterday. Obviously I was right about what happened. Here’s part of what I wrote yesterday:

”Maybe he [President Trump], unlike most political administrations worldwide finds his ”facts” from the famous American TV channel Fox News instead of consulting professionals like most other presidents would?”

The Swedish Embassy in Washington DC has been in touch with the Trump administration regarding the content of the speech that President Trump held in Florida. Shortly after that, President Trump posted a comment on Twitter. According to today’s Dagens Nyheter the Swedish Government take the tweet as an answer for their inquirements:

#asaole, #donald-trump-regarding-sweden Yesterday I was suggesting that President Trump was lying. This time, however, I think he is honest! I actually believe he used Fox News as his reference for the comment on the situation in Sweden. Wouldn’t that lead to the conclusion that Fox News are now ”banned” by the President for using fake news??? 🙂

Fourhundred and twenty-seventh Asic- True or not, that’s the question, Mr President! Part 2

#svenska flaggan, #asaole

President Trump has been to Florida, speaking to ”the People” about Sweden… I live in Sweden, an open democracy far away from the USA. In fact it is so far away that Mr Trump hardly knows for sure by himself whether we had a terror act here or not yesterday… We didn’t…

But Mr Trump has obviously listened to advisors that he trusts and thought it wise to share his worries for this nation far away with the audience in Florida. I wonder what kind of advisors would lead their president in such a stupid trap if they were his allies…or is it possible that President Trump has his own way of finding information? Maybe he, unlike most political administrations worldwide finds his ”facts” from the famous american TV channel Fox News instead of consulting professionals like most other presidents would?

Let us assume that he has been watching Fox News when they were openly lying about a fake terror act that did not happen, but was SAID to have happened here in Sweden… He has then consumed ”fake news”, hasn’t he? Let us then assume that President Trump this time did not at all think twice, instead he, like many viewers across America, just assumed that since it is a news channel, it has to be true…What does that lead to in the end? It may lead to a bad reputation for my country, in the eyes of those who believed the nonsense on Fox News…or it may lead to a bad reputation for Mr Trump’s precidency worldwide for listening to lies and believing them without a doubt…

First of all we, the people of Sweden, who did NOT experience a terror act, would instantly know that Mr Trump is spreading lies. Secondly we, the people of Sweden would either think that he is stupid in doing so, since it shows no respect for the ambition of sharing facts instead of fake news that he so eagerly have been yelling about in a number of press conferences lately. Thirdly we would worry deeply for the American people who still watch Fox News, thinking that they are served with the truth.

The Swedish Embassy in Washington DC has been in touch with the Trump administration to ask more about the content of the speech that Mr Trump held in Florida. I believe Mr Trump no longer need to worry for Sweden. Instead he can concentrate on worries for his own country.

Twohundred and Sixteenth Asic- Snowzilla, Milk and Cookies!

The major storm Snowzilla has now started its journey through the twenty states on the east coast of the USA… It was in a way very interesting to watch TV from a completely empty Washington DC where the Swedish TV reporter seemed all alone in the streets, sharing his report with us… We have snow every winter, but according to the TV reporter from Swedish TV4, some of the states suffering from Snowzilla, hardly get any snow an ordinary winter and may have difficulties getting rid of it, once the storm has passed.

I have a few friends in the USA. They have one thing in common… They all share stories about what one would do if a storm of any kind is predicted… Obviously everyone go to the store, get loads of food in general, but milk and cookies in particular, in order not to ”starve”during the storm… I’m sure we go to the store, too, but I also notice that this desperate ”I HAVE to go to the store” doesn’t seem to be as common here as over there… Maybe we have a more ”longterm” idea for our grocery shopping than Americans do? Milk and cookies??? Meat and potatoes would be more of the Swedish way in that case… 😉

From my heart, I hope you all wake up to a wonderful white world where very little is damaged or ruined by the storm and the only remaining issue is the layer of beautiful snow everywhere…  I also hope you have your cameras ready to take photos, to share with the rest of us and with your grandchildren one day! Winter is an amazing season. Quiet, white and cold! Well… I understand the very storm isn’t quiet!!! Snowzilla is probably very loud! Light a candle and listen to her! It might be the storm of your life! Enjoy!!!
