Journalists Troll InfoWars Editor After He Offers Free Trip to Sweden’s ‘Crime Ridden Migrant Suburbs of Malmo’

This weekend, Milo Yiannopoulos‘s shocking comments on pedophilia weren’t the only ones making headlines. Donald Trump, too, made a surprising proclamation about a terror attack in Sweden that — much like Kellyanne Conway‘s Bowling Green Massacre and Sean Spicer‘s Atlanta attack — never, ever happened. Trump, of course, took heat for making up yet another terrorist incident.

InfoWars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson (whose belief in conspiracy theories is broken down by our Alex Griswold here) defended Trump with the following tweet:

Naturally, journalists have been jumping at the chance to have a trip to Sweden paid for.

Here’s a reporter who didn’t want to claim the trip, but wanted to deliver some information:

(Watson did respond to that one, unlike many of the others. He said that Justin Ling was “wrong again,” then linked to an InfoWars article on Malmo being the most dangerous city in Western Europe.)

Anyway, all of those tweets above don’t even come close to representing the amount of journalists who’ve stepped forward to claim their trip, let alone the amount of people shredding Watson for being seemingly pompous and ill-informed. He’s responded to it all like this:

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but it doesn’t look likely that anyone is actually getting a free trip out of this.
