Sanders Jumps on Trump Wind Ignorance

April 11, 2019

Not one to miss an opportunity, Bernie Sanders has a new social media spot lambasting Donald Trump’s ignorance in regard to climate, and wind energy.


Bernie Sanders, a Vermont senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, has attacked President Donald Trump’s statements on wind turbines, calling Trump the “only person in the world” who believes these wind-energy converters cause cancer.
Sanders took the president to task over statements he made while talking about this renewable form of energy earlier this month, lampooning him in a video posted on Instagram.
“As many of you know, President Trump has said the noise coming from wind turbines causes cancer. Actually Donald Trump is the only person in the world who believes that,” Sanders said in footage posted by his 2020 presidential campaign.
The Instagram post then cut to a clip of the president speaking at a National Republican Congressional Committee dinner a week ago, where he mimed a noise supposedly made by wind turbines.

“Actually, standing here, you can’t hear a thing except cars going by on the road,” Sanders said, while standing in an Iowa field against a backing track that would not be out of place on Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
“The fact is that Iowa gets about 35 percent of its electricity from wind turbines all over the state, which by the way provides revenue to farmers who desperately need that revenue. So, President Trump, once again, try to get your act together and try to tell the truth. It won’t hurt,” Sanders promised.
The president has been questioned about his comments linking wind turbines with cancer.
