Fox News presents fake Swedish National Security Advisor to back up Trump's false claims

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Sat Feb 25, 2017 6:31 pm

A man interviewed by Bill O’Reilly of Fox News this week, who was identified in an on-screen caption as a “Swedish Defense and National Security Advisor,” turns out to be entirely unknown in his native country, with no connections to either the nation’s defense or security services.

As the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported on Friday, Nils Bildt, who echoed Fake President Trump’s debunked claim that immigrants from Muslim majority nations had driven a rise in violent crime in Sweden, has no known expertise in national security, and has not lived in his homeland since 1994. Officials at the Swedish Defense Ministry and Foreign Office told the newspaper they have never heard of this “unknown Bildt.”

Ooops! Laughing

The man said that he didn't choose that title - Fox News did.

There are claims that he has convictions in the US and that he spent a year in prison. He has denied that he spent a year in prison, But I'm not sure if he has denied that he has convictions.
