Robert ReichOn Tuesday, Berkeley professor and former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich issued a tweet in which he suggested that migrant riots which broke out in Sweden are Donald Trump’s fault, echoing another conspiracy theory he floated claiming that Breitbart.com was responsible for the left-wing violence at UC Berkeley.

“Trump’s lies have consequences. 48 hrs after his comments on Sweden, riots broke out in an immigrant community,” he wrote.

He later deleted the tweet, but it was already captured for posterity:

Reich was referring to statements Trump made at a rally in Florida over the weekend:

We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening. We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this. Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.

According to Breitbart:

Establishment journalists mocked this segment of the rally speech, assuming Trump falsely claimed a terror attack had occurred recently in Sweden. Later on, he tweeted that he had seen a report on Sweden on Fox News Friday night. On the primetime show Tucker Carlson Tonight, one segment covered widespread unemployment among asylum seekers in Sweden.

However, just two days later, chaotic migrant riots shut down taunts from Swedish politicians and left-wing reporters. The violence in Rinkeby, a suburb of Stockholm with a large immigrant population, reportedly began after police made a drug-related arrest. Attackers targeted police officers, property, and bystanders. One freelance journalist described the scene as “like a war zone,” and migrant rioters hospitalized a photojournalist for Dagens Nyheter, one of Sweden’s largest newspapers.

Reich, 70, has since deleted the tweet — after a wave of more lucid users found and mocked his theory.

And probably the great Chicago fire of 1871.  Maybe he was the one who is REALLY responsible for killing the dinosaurs as well…

Who knows… Maybe Reich and McCain will blame the Russians next…
