Trump Roasted After He Says Windmills Cause Cancer

President Trump spoke at a fundraising dinner for the National Republican Congressional Committee last night and I’m sure you’ll be surprised to learn that he said a ton of insane things.

For example, Trump complained someone was going to leak his speech to the media, despite the fact it was being broadcast on C-SPAN.

He also (alarmingly) told Republicans to be “more paranoid” about election results because he doesn’t “like the way the votes are being tallied.”

But perhaps the weirdest thing he said was that the noise from windmills causes cancer. (???)

Obviously, this is hilariously false, so Trump got lit up on Twitter:

It turns out this is another wacky conspiracy theory that’s been debunked, but our president’s mind is like an old rotting kitchen sponge so here we are.

This is just the latest in a long line of lies Trump tells about wind energy. He’s also claimed it’s deadly to birds (fossil fuels are deadlier), it doesn’t power when the wind isn’t blowing, and that the turbines are attractive terrorist targets.
