The leader of the free world ranted about windmills while calling into Sean Hannity’s Fox News show on Monday.
“If you see a windmill and you hear a windmill, your home goes down by half, or less than half. It kills all the birds,” Trump falsely claimed.
“The whole thing is crazy, what they want to do, and they’ll destroy the country,” Trump argued.
Here’s some of what people were saying about his fear of windmills:
"If your condo says Trump on it, you lost even more value."

58,000 turbines and 150k-400k dead birds per year, less than one a month per turbine…

Trump to Hannity: “If you see a windmill and you hear a windmill, your home goes down by half, or less than half. It kills all the birds”

Do you know how many Americans have died for Covid?

So we've arrived at "windmills will destroy the country", and these fools still want to pretend that it's Biden that's lost his mind.

And they kill birds, he bemoans. Like he cares about birds. He doesn't even care about people

Happy about Harris but the real psy-ops would have been announcing a windmill as Biden’s running mate.
