Donald Trump, an obnoxious Twitter troll running for President, said Palm Springs looks like “a junkyard” and the “worst thing you have ever seen” in a radio interview today.
Trump called into Herman Cain’s morning talk show (yes, Herman Cain has a talk show for some reason) and, this will surprise you, the two seemed to agree on mostly everything.
At one point, the topic turned to energy and that is when Trump brought up Palm Springs and its famous windmills (transcript via the Atlanta Journal Constitution):
Trump: In all fairness, wind is fine. Sometimes you go — I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Palm Springs, California — it looks like a junkyard. They have all these different —
Cain: I have.
Trump: They have all these different companies and each one is made by a different group from, all from China and from Germany, by the way — not from here. And you look at all these windmills. Half of them are broken. They’re rusting and rotting. You know, you’re driving into Palm Springs, California, and it looks like a poor man’s version of Disneyland. It’s the worst thing you’ve ever seen.
And it kills all the birds. I don’t know if you know that … Thousands of birds are lying on the ground. And the eagle. You know, certain parts of California — they’ve killed so many eagles. You know, they put you in jail if you kill an eagle. And yet these windmills [kill] them by the hundreds.
So yeah, beware of the all of those dead eagles on the 10 freeway right after you pass Cabazon on your way into the gross looking junkyard hellscape that is the Coachella Valley, everyone.
This is not the first time Trump has insulted Palm Springs and the windmills and it probably won’t be the last, as the nasty hombre just can’t seem to help himself when it comes to insulting the desert.
You can listen to the interview here (Trump talks Palm Springs about the 7:25 mark).
