Trump Makes Bizarre Claim That Noise from Windmills Causes Cancer: WATCH

At a speech to House Republicans on Tuesday night, Donald Trump went on a bizarre rant about windmills, called them “a graveyard for birds” and made the false claim that the noise they make causes cancer.

“If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value,” he told the National Republican Congressional Committee spring dinner. “And they say the noise causes cancer. You tell me that one, okay? Rrrrr rrrrr!”

Writes Jonathan Chait at New York magazine: “Wind turbines do not cause cancer. Some people blame the noise for causing a variety of other health ailments, but these charges have zero scientific validity. Cancer is not caused by noises of any kind. A power source that does cause many health problems, including cancer, is coal, an extremely dirty fuel Trump loves and has attempted to bolster, with almost no success. Aside from costing more to produce energy than other sources of power, and in addition to enormous air pollution side effects, coal also emits greenhouse gases in large amounts. Though this of course is another aspect of science Trump rejects.”

In related news, Trump met with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s Secretary General and said that his father was born in Germany.

Trump’s father Fred was born in the Bronx.

Trump also replaced the word “origins” with “oranges” — three times.

Gay British MP breaks down on live TV as he reveals cancer diagnosis

Labour MP Chris Bryant fought back tears during an interview on SkyNews today, as he talked about being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer.

Bryant, who is the MP for the Welsh constituency of Rhondda said his husband, Jared Cranney, discovered the growth.

He told SkyNews presenter, Kay Burley, how a shorter-than-usual haircut allowed his husband to spot the melanoma before Christmas, although he dismissed it at the time as ‘a tiny little mole’.


The MP has visible scars from where the melanoma was cut out from the side of his head in January.

The former minister told Burley: ‘There was no pain, I’d get a bit of an itchy scalp in the winter anyway, so it was slightly itchy and I could feel it was a bit raised – about the thickness of a 2p coin maybe.’

He explained during the live interview how he made the decision to get what he considered a mole checked out by a doctor in January.

Diagnosis was like a punch in the stomach

Welling up with emotion, Bryant told the SkyNews presenter: ‘It feels like being punched in the stomach.’

‘You do want to cry, I felt cold in my skin for 48 hours.

‘I slept terribly that night and I imagined everything – I was going to be dead by the end of the week, I wasn’t going to make it to Easter, every single twinge in my body was another form of cancer.’

He also praised his husband as a ‘star’ and told Burley how he was struck by the fact that a decade or so earlier he would have been reluctant to have his partner by his side during his hospital visits.

‘I would have worried about having my partner there with me because I’d have had to explain who he was,’ he said.

‘No one today bats an eyelid.’

SkyNews reported that Bryant is positive about his future health, adding: ‘At the moment, all the prognosis is really good.’
