I BLOW A FOUL WIND  11:41 am March 19, 2012

Embarrassing Muppet Donald Trump Calls Windmills ‘Horrible, Loud, Disgusting’

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Morally and often financially bankruptThere is a phrase that Socialist Jewishes like to say each other (with their hands tightly grasping all their Socialist Jewish munneez, of course!). That thing they like to say is, “We see the world not as it is, but as we are.” It’s from something called “Talmud,” we guess? Anyway, horrible, loud, and disgusting embarrassment The Donald Trump had a rare moment of self-unawareness recently when he said windmills were horrible, loud, and disgusting, but did not say the same thing about himself. Weird, right?
Trump jabbered on to Neil Cavuto at Fox, claiming many terribly unfactual things, such as that we don’t drill for natural gas (we frack for it apparently instead) and how boohoo Obama won’t let us drill baby drill all the time forever (the number of rigs in the US is at an all-time high). Even Greta Van Susteren was forced to concede this, before explaining why it was yet another ObamaLie.

OBAMA: That’s a fact. That’s a fact. We’ve quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs to a record high. So do not tell me that we’re not drilling. We’re drilling all over this country.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

OBAMA: I mean, I guess there are — there are a few spots where we’re not drilling. We’re not drilling in the National Mall.

(LAUGHTER)

OBAMA: We’re not drilling at your house.

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VAN SUSTEREN: Does President Obama have his facts straight? Jonathan Strong from Roll Call joins us and is our fact checker tonight. So you heard the president speak. Does he have his facts right about the drilling and — during his administration?

JONATHAN STRONG, ROLL CALL: The speech included a series of technically true but misleading statements. So the president is kind of correct in the sense that his policies aren’t causing the current increase in gas prices because drilling takes a long time to come on line. It’s a long-term process. And oil production is at the highest rate it has been at any time in the last eight years.

VAN SUSTEREN: So he’s right about that, right?

STRONG: Yes.

VAN SUSTEREN: OK, so why is that misleading when he says that?

Well, because it must be, Greta, or people might think that Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Fox News were all incredibly full of shit.

Oh right: and walking sebaceous cyst Mister Trump.

Wind is destroying the environment in many, many places. People are going crazy over the horrible, noisy, disgusting windmills. And they are horrible and a horrible intrusion, ruining communities, and solar is weak and has not been effective and is very, very expensive.

[...]

Well, we keep doing it because we don’t drill — we don’t get our own natural gas, where we are the actual Saudi Arabia of natural gas, and we could really fuel this country with it. But for some reason, we don’t use it. And it is a lot cheaper, it’s a lot cleaner, and yet we don’t use it because of a lack of leadership. It is hard to believe, but we just don`t use our product — we don’t drill what is right under our feet.

Then Donald Trump was beheaded by a rogue windmill. It was really sad, you guys. I cried. [Newsmax, via ThinkProgress]

Donald, you poor underestimated, over-misunderstood spokesman for the much-maligned shale gas scheme. Of course wind is easier to target with skepticism; what feather-crowned tycoon wouldn't find a problem with a strong gale?

ElPinche March 19, 2012 at 11:46 am

It's understandable. We know why Trump and his furry head pet hates windmills and wind.

spends2much March 19, 2012 at 11:46 am

If wind is destroying the environment, the first step to fixing it would be to,uh, terminate The Donald, am I right? And I don't just mean his blowhard speeches; that guy's farts are definitely toxic.

Major Thom March 19, 2012 at 11:46 am

The Donald should spend more time drilling his current wife and less time jabbering about oil.

All those offshore windfarms here in Europe really do ruin our quality of life. I mean, hundreds of miles away with low-to-no environmental impact? The horror.

"And they are horrible and a horrible intrusion, ruining communities"

Was he talking about some of his buildings?

Tundra Grifter March 19, 2012 at 11:53 am

Remember when Louis Black showed those photos of gaudy interiors and asked if they were taken at Donald Chump's buildings or Sadam Insane's palaces?

I've been to Atlantic City more times than I care to admit. Frigging inlaws. Anyhoo, by far the nicest human-built structures anywhere around AC are the windmills. Trump's casinos rank a distant last; in fact, I'd put them behind the Fresh Kills lanfill on Staten Island and Chernobyl. At least Chernobyl blew itself up.

So Trump is himself a windmill, then?

Windmills are to Trump the way Tree's (as the earth's biggest polluters) were to Reagan?

BaldarTFlagass March 19, 2012 at 11:49 am

"it is a lot cheaper, it’s a lot cleaner, and yet we don’t use it because of a lack of leadership."

Obama called me this weekend and asked me to make the switch from all-electric to natural gas in my home. I told him to get fucked, he ain't the king of me.

Jeppers, where did you get that picture of The Donald? Had he just eaten some bad oysters? Shellfish allergy? It's as bad as that picture of BillO that Al Franken used in his book.

iburl March 19, 2012 at 11:49 am

Substitue "windmills" for "Trump Casinos" and he has a point.

VadersEX March 19, 2012 at 11:50 am

Obviously Mr. Trump has never had a well drilled on property near his home. Well drilling is horrible, loud and disgusting. And I'm in the oil business. It is a messy, dangerous process. Much louder and more disgusting than windmills.

Sheesh he has a HUGE case of NIMBY.

Baconzgood March 19, 2012 at 11:50 am

"Wind is destroying the environment in many, many places. People are going crazy over the horrible, noisy, disgusting windmills. And they are horrible and a horrible intrusion, ruining communities"

Fracking is destroying the environment and in many, many poluting watersheds. People are going crazy and townships being shat on over the horrible, noisy, discusting natural gas hydraulic fracturing extraction sites. And they are horrible and a horrible intrusion and ruining communities

-FUCKING FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-

It would be a great Secret Service code name for Newt Gingrich.

Meh. Build more windmills, and Barry Soweto will just import more foreign wind to run them. It's a no-win.

"The speech included a series of technically true but misleading statements."

Technically true = because they are.

Misleading = because he's a blah democrat.

Can we put some windmills anywhere near the Donalds mouth – because we all know he blows. This guy could be our greatest source of renewable energy.

"Wind is destroying the environment." Is it possible that a person of normal intelligence said this?

Is there nothing more important today than what this horrible, loud, disgusting moron has to say?

Goonemeritus March 19, 2012 at 11:56 am

I don’t even know where to start on this, as to his point that we are not drilling for natural gas I live in the middle of the Marcellus Shale region, they are drilling. Yes natural gas is cheaper now because of it but this doesn’t relate to gas being cheaper if they drilled more because oil is easer to ship than natural gas hence its price is set by world price. Modern windmills aren’t very noisy they just aren’t. Are they a blight on the landscape, only in the sense that it takes lots of them to add up to one coal plant. I would much rather live next to a wind farm than a coal plant. I will close where I should have started Mr. Trump is a total douche nozzle and should be shunned.

edgydrifter March 19, 2012 at 11:56 am

Tart up one of those windmills with gold spray paint and make the blades T-shaped and suddenly this gristle-faced conman would be wind power's biggest promoter.

I see those windmills all the time in california, never heard one yet though. Wouldn't you like have to be standing next to one or sitting on top it to hear it?

Jukesgrrl March 20, 2012 at 1:24 am

I thought the same thing. Driving from Tucson to San Diego I go past a bunch that are on tribal lands and they just make a noise like a fan. Maybe if you're standing right under one … But they're in a pretty remote area. I suspect they're powering the tribe's casino. Maybe that's The Donald's problem. His competitors aren't paying Atlantic City Electric bills.

HippieEsq March 19, 2012 at 12:07 pm

I'll bet a MILLION of Mitt's dollars that the Donald's Helicopter/Leer Jet is requred to fly some alternate route to Palm Desert becuase of the wind farms and the extra 4 minutes of travel time is just ruining, RUINING, his despicable life (4 minutes at a time).

Jukesgrrl March 20, 2012 at 1:25 am

Yes, and I'm sure his air transportation is totally silent.

chicken_thief March 19, 2012 at 12:14 pm

"…we don’t drill."

"We" don't own any rigs or mineral rights. Private oil companies do. So unless The Donald is suggesting that "we" nationalize the oil/natural gas industry, there isn't a lot "we" can do about bringing wells on line.

Toomush_Infer March 19, 2012 at 12:15 pm

By "destroying the environment" I trust he means the view from certain mansions of what those owners would like to say they own….we lived in sw Minnesota back in the 80s and 90s among a huge expansion of wind machines – monumental, quiet, profitable and a great place to picnic….just…well…fuck him…

I don't honestly know how loud a windmill is because we LUrVE coal where I live, at least til the tap water (we have inside tap water!) catches fire, because, freedom – but since Donnie T says they are terrible, windmills must be really really awesome and now I want one.

Trumpy has always been an idiot, but he sealed it with two things:

Presenting the promotional "birth certificate" from the hospital where he was born as his "birth certificate".

Berating and belittling Marlee Matlin for not knowing who Dionne Warwick was. When Ms. Matlin said that she didn't know music stars because she was deaf, Trumpee doubled down and said she should have known who Ms. Warwick was, while doing his dismissive little frown/headshake combo.

He's right about windmills ruining the environment. If you put up the windmills it attracts wind to your area, and before you know it tornadoes are being spawned.

JustPixelz March 19, 2012 at 2:07 pm

If he thinks windmills are horrible and noisy and disgusting, he should spend a few minutes next to a fossil fuel burning power plant. Or the impact of a coal mine to get that fuel.

Or listening to the panicked screams when the sirens go off at a nuclear plant. Or even the roar of hydro-electric.

He's one of those people who like electricity but want to be ignorant of how it's donw.

Mahousu March 19, 2012 at 2:48 pm

The Trump is right. If a steel mill produces steel, obviously a windmill produces wind. And ever since we started installing all those windmills, we got exactly what you'd expect – tornadoes and hurricanes. That, my friends, is logic.

Same thing with solar, by the way – we set up all those solar farms and sure enough, the last decade has been the hottest on record. There's your man-made global warming, right there.

"Wind is destroying the environment in many, many places."

Well then I think Mittard Romney should definitely stop the wind once he is Preznit.
The water flowing in rivers causes erosion also, too… so we should dam all the damn rivers.
It truly is too bad that we don't have windmills set up during this erection thing the (R)s got going… maybe it would be both loud enough to drown them out and we could pick up some free 'tricity.
