President Donald Trump ludicrously claimed he's seen dead bald eagles "all over the place" beneath windmills, and social media users were baffled.
The president has raged against wind turbines for years, believing they block the ocean view at his golf course in Scotland, and now that he's U.S. president, he frequently claims wind power is particularly dangerous to birds and inconvenient to television viewers.
But his claim about bald eagles might even be more ridiculous than his claim that the noise from wind turbines causes cancer.
