Trump gets epically mocked for claiming windmills kill bald eagles

President Donald Trump has windmills on the brain again. And this time they’re killing bald eagles.

Speaking to workers at a natural gas plant in Louisiana Tuesday, the president went off script and began riffing about the Green New Deal:

“You are under assault. And now they talk about the Green New Deal. The Green New Deal. Everybody go home, you just lost your Jobs. The Green New Deal, that’s a hoax like the hoax I just went through.”

And then he turned to wind energy, remarking that some progressive politicians “sort of like wind even though it kills all the birds.” He added:

“You want to see a bird cemetery? Go under a windmill sometime. You will see the saddest, you got every type of bird. You know, in California you go to jail for five years if you kill a bald eagle. You go under a windmill, you see them all over the place. Not a good situation.”

As you may recall, this isn’t the first time Trump has made patently absurd claims about windmills. Just last month at a fundraiser, the president commented:

“If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value. And they say the noise causes cancer.”

FactCheck.org called Trump’s windmill-cancer link “faulty” and noted:

There is no evidence that wind turbines cause cancer. The American Cancer Society told us in a statement that it is “unaware of any credible evidence linking the noise from windmills to cancer.” We also searched the biomedical literature for any studies investigating a link, and couldn’t find any.

Let the internet mocking begin!
