George Conway Brutally Trolls Trump As A ‘Windmill Cancer Survivor’

George Conway, the conservative attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, just updated his Twitter description to take another jab at another of Donald Trump’s outlandish assertions.

Until recently, the frequent Trump critic described himself as a “lawyer” on Twitter. But after Trump’s ongoing false claims about wind-based renewable energy, Conway modified his description to “windmill cancer survivor.”

On April 2, Donald Trump continued to criticize wind power while speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee fundraiser.

Trump told fellow Republicans:

“If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value.”

He added:

“And they say the noise causes cancer.”

Which is a blatant lie.

Politifact conveniently pointed out that a 2014 review of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine of scientific studies concluded that “epidemiological studies have shown associations between living near wind turbines and annoyance.”

And that “annoyance seems more strongly related to individual characteristics than noise from turbines.” So while wind turbine sounds are annoying, its sonic assualt on your eardrums won’t kill you.

Soon, the hashtag: #WindmillsCauseCancer began circulating on Twitter.

Trump has long slammed wind turbines as an energy source, arguing over its unreliability because sometimes the wind doesn’t blow.

“If it doesn’t blow, you can forget about television for that night,” he said at a rally in Michigan.

Trump added:

“Darling, I want to watch television.’ ‘I’m sorry! The wind isn’t blowing.’ I know a lot about wind.”

The debate on wind power energy affecting health prompted the Australian parliament to form a Select Committee on Wind Turbines. They were sympathetic to reports of discomfort and ailments, including, “tinnitus, raised blood pressure, heart palpitations, tachycardia, stress, anxiety, vertigo, dizziness.”

However, no one complained of cancer. There is also no evidence of the sound from wind turbines causing cancer.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who helped push the wind energy tax credit, called Trump’s comments of wind turbines causing cancer, “idiotic” in a call with reporters.

“(Trump’s) comments on wind energy — not only as a president but when he was a candidate — were, first of all, idiotic, and it didn’t show much respect for Chuck Grassley as the grandfather of the wind energy tax credit.”

Other windmill cancer survivors came forward and praised Conway’s comedic chops.

Kellyanne Conway, who was formerly an aspiring comedian, is dodging rotten tomatoes for her role in the Oval Office. Meanwhile, her husband seems to be the one getting all the laughs.
