Trump may know his audience, but for the rest of us, it's just another day, another lie, this time in service of the oil and gas industry.

Donald Trump on Tuesday claimed that he had seen dead bald eagles “all over the place” because of energy-producing windmills.

“You are under assault,” Trump told a group of natural gas workers in Louisiana. “And now they talk about the Green New Deal. The Green New Deal. Everybody go home, you just lost your Jobs. The Green New Deal, that’s a hoax like the hoax I just went through.”

“Under that deal, everybody in this room gets fired,” he continued. “All of the thousands of guys and women standing in these buildings get fired, they go because under the Green New Deal, they don’t like clean, beautiful natural gas. They don’t like anything.”

Trump noted that progressive politicians “sort of like wind even though it kills all the birds.”

“You want to see a bird cemetery? Go under a windmill sometime,” the president ranted. “You will see the saddest, you got every type of bird. You know, in California you go to jail for five years if you kill a bald eagle. You go under a windmill, you see them all over the place. Not a good situation.”

“But that’s what they were counting on, wind. When the wind doesn’t blow, you don’t watch television that night,” Trump added.
