Twitter users berated Trump after he claimed at a National Republican Congressional Committee fundraising dinner that “they say the noise” from the turbines causes cancer.
Tweeters were quick to pile on Trump over his latest untruth:
Wind turbine noise causes cancer.
There are entire internet communities that spend hours upon hours cooking up vast and complicated narratives where Donald Trump is a mastermind orchestrating world affairs. They edit videos. For hours.

Things Trump sincerely believes:
1. Exercise is bad for you
2. Noise from wind farms causes cancer
3. Global warming is a hoax
He’s the most powerful man on earth

It’s just totally weird that the president casually suggest that the noise from wind farms could cause cancer and NO ONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS IN 24 HOURS!

I am definitely not getting into the cancer thing (what?) but it was just 2 weeks ago that Danish researchers found no significant relationship between wind farms and heart attacks and strokes. https://t.co/putaQmGIqI

1) President’s ongoing attacks on wind energy (he says tonight that turbines cause cancer) infuriates supporters in big wind states like Iowa and Texas
2) Trump has fought Scottish officials over turbines near his properties

The “wind turbines give you cancer” thing is such a deep cut in the conspiracy ecosystem, it’s remarkable it navigated its way to Trump, who doesn’t really use the internet other than to tweet.
Whatever grapevine he heard this through must have some really wild stuff in it.
