Trump’s Absurd Comments About Wind Turbines Prove That He Has No Idea How Renewable Energy Works

Renewable energy continues to be a sticking point for Donald Trump.

Last month, Trump claimed that the noise caused by windmills causes cancer, and back in March, he informed supporters gathered at a rally in Grand Rapids, MI, that “wind does not always blow.”

On Tuesday, while speaking to Sempra Energy employees in Louisiana, Trump continued blowing hot air and proved he is still clueless about wind power.

The president repeated his false assertion about wind-based renewable energy by bashing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, and we laughed at the wannabe comedian when he said:

“When the wind doesn’t blow you don’t watch television that night. Your wife says, ‘what the hell did you get me into with this Green New Deal, Charlie?'”

Did you hear the hesitant courtesy applause that was even more awkward?

It seems none of Trump’s advisers informed him about how stored electricity works.

He believes that wind power doesn’t work when there’s no breeze rifling through his hairpiece.

He also called AOC’s Green New Deal proposal a hoax.

“That’s a hoax like the hoax I just went through. Under that deal, everybody in this room gets fired. All of the thousands of guys and women standing on these buildings gets fired.”

What is his obsession with the wind? Twitter had some ideas.

We know where his priorities lie in the absence of a breeze.

He didn’t know his audience.

The dilemma people are currently facing is whether to mock Trump or be deeply concerned.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any weirder, the president followed through.

Tuesday’s speech was another rambling session that seemed more like a campaign rally.

As usual, nothing substantive spouted from the wind tunnel inside his head.
