President Donald Trump is tilting at windmills yet again.
During a speech he made to attendees of the Turning Point USA conference over the weekend, Trump began making fun of the Green New Deal and then went off an extended, nearly incoherent rant about wind power and windmills, remarking:
“I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right?”
The president then added:
“So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air.”
Yes, the world is tiny compared to the universe, and a mustard seed is gigantic compared to the size of what passes for a brain in Donald Trump’s skull.
Pretending to care about wildlife, Trump then bemoaned the fate of birds that are killed by windmills:
“A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?”
Granted, none of this should surprise anyone when you consider that his is the very same man who claimed in April that windmills cause cancer:
“And they say the noise causes cancer.”
No one says that other than the birdbrain in the White House. Then again, no one says half of the moronic things Donald Trump says other than his equally clueless Republican minions who defend him even when he commits high crimes and misdemeanors.
In some parallel universe, Don Quixote is shaking his head.
