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.
It used to be just birds in general. Now its bald eagles.
His lkes ate getting crazier

6…have a field of ornithology to deal with this.
But why bald eagles lie? Simple. His base doesn’t give a rats ass about birds. But they DO get patriot boners over bald eagles. So that’s the lie. As the ornithologist texted me, “The idiotification of America continues.”

I’m so jealous! I’ve only seen two bald eagles in my lifetime! They are majestic creatures. If I’d known they hang out at windmill farms I’d have done a roadtrip!

Tremendous mountains of dead bald eagles as far as the eye can see. The biggest ever seen. Everyone is saying it.
