New Delhi [India], Feb 21. (ANI): With several folks from the Hollywood coming out in the open against Donald Trump, comedian Stephen Colbert took a nice jibe at the U.S. President. After President Trump spoke last week at a rally about "what's happening last night in Sweden," when, in fact, nothing happened, Colbert responded to say that Trump seemed to have misheard or misunderstood the news reported on Fox News. Colbert said, "I guess Trump only accepts intelligence reports with the logo, 'As Seen on TV'," reports Hollywood reporter. He further mocked the US President and said, "And just because this attack didn't happen, folks, doesn't mean we don't stand in solidarity with all the people who did not suffer." The Late Show's Stephen Colbert was sure to honour the imaginary victims of the "Bowling Green Massacre," and he's back to do the same with the faux terror incident in Sweden. "In fact, Sweden's crime rate has fallen since 2005," he continued. "In fact, experts say 90 percent of Swedish crime actually occurs in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. "Clearly, Trump believes everything he sees on TV is real," said Colbert, "which would explain his next tweet: 'America is a disaster! Our girls are broke! Our dead are walking! The pope's too young! It's a scandal! #shameless.' "Tragically," he continued, "Sweden is the third not-a-terrorist attack that has not shocked the world in the last month. First, there wasn't the Bowling Green massacre, then no one was lost in Atlanta. And now it's not Sweden's turn. When will it begin? And just because this attack didn't happen, folks, doesn't mean we don't stand in solidarity with all the people who did not suffer."(ANI)
