President Donald Trump is capable of saying some stupid things, but as we’ve said before, the media would be doing themselves a big favor if they could realign their priorities now that the election is over; the unofficial contest to see which reporter can dig up the dirt that forces Trump to drop out of the race is over. The Pulitzer committee will award some nice consolation prizes eventually, but dial it back a notch, maybe?
We saw how long it took for the press to go wild with Trump’s claim during Saturday’s rally that there had been a terrorist attack in Sweden the night before. Even the Swedish Embassy got in on the act, but it wasn’t enough to ridicule Trump — the explainers at Vox had to go a step father and prove that Sweden has no problem with immigrant-related crimes.
The Daily Caller’s Justin Caruso, however, argues otherwise.
The left insists there's no problem with migration to Sweden, yet refuses to collect immigrant crime statistics. 🤔 https://t.co/6AZyyDKsH4— Justin Caruso (@justincaruso2) February 19, 2017
