Jenna Jameson Defends Trump’s Sweden Comments

Jenna Jameson, the porn star who converted to Judaism and loves Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, defended President Trump’s speech that referred to fictional terrorism in Sweden. In a series of tweets, Jameson ranted against “roving Muslim rape gangs” in the Scandinavian country.

Swedish citizens were baffled after President Trump referred to “what’s happening last night in Sweden” while speaking about terrorism in Europe at a rally last Saturday. The president conceded he based his comment on a Fox News interview with filmmaker Ami Horowitz, whose documentary about migrants committing violent crime in Sweden has been dogged by allegations of selective editing and false claims.

Jameson did not concern herself with whether Trump or Horowitz were correct.

She lashed out at Chelsea Clinton for attacking Trump’s comments.

She bundled an anti-Islamic rant in her tweetstorm.

And she seemed to condone violence from the Ku Klux Klan.

Jameson has in the past tweeted about having a “massive crush” on Netanyahu, whom she’s referred to as a “complete badass.”
