Late night comics had fun Monday night after U.S. President Donald Trump appeared to invent a terror attack in Sweden during a rally in Florida on Saturday, the second time in this month the president or a member of his staff made a reference to attacks carried out by migrants that didn't actually happen.

Stephen Colbert ripped into Trump, replaying what Trump said, "You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden! Who would believe this? Sweden!”

“No one,” Colbert quipped in reply. “No one would believe that. Well, not no one, but maybe someone who skips their intelligence briefings.”

Never Fjorget What Happened In Sweden

Even after being debunked, President Donald Trump continued tweeting further criticism of Sweden's immigration policies.

The president tweeted Monday that: "The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!"

People in Sweden have been scratching their heads since Trump suggested during a rally Saturday that some sort of incident had occurred in their country.

Seth Meyers dedicated his "Closer look" segment to mocking Trump's made-up Sweden terror attack as well.
