The internet can’t get enough of President Donald Trump’s “last night in Sweden” remarks, including, of course, J.K. Rowling.

Never one to shy from a little fun at the expense of the U.S. president, theauthor joined in on Twitter’s response to Trump’s confusing reference to a terrorist attack that didn’t actually happen.

Naturally, Rowling’s hashtag kicked off a whole new riff on Trump’s Sweden comments.

A quick refresher: During a speech at a rally in Melbourne, Florida, held Saturday night, Trump sandwiched a vague reference to Sweden between references to recent terrorist attacks in Germany, France and Belgium.

From a transcript of his speech:

“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. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”

As many have noted, nothing close to the attacks he referenced in his speech happened in Sweden on Friday night.

Even Sweden’s former prime minister struggled to make sense of Trump’s comment:

As for the horse, let’s all hope its OK after its terrifying ordeal.
