George Conway, husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and frequent, mocked Trump’s recent comments on wind turbine power by adding “windmill cancer survivor” to his Twitter bio.
Conway previously described himself as just a “lawyer” on his Twitter account until earlier this month, when Twitter users noticed he had changed his bio to read, “Lawyer. Windmill cancer survivor.”
Conway retweeted two posts on April 2 to call out the false claims Trump made at a National Republican Congressional Committee fundraiser while railing against wind turbine technology.
“If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value. And they say the noise causes cancer,” Trump said.
There is no evidence to back Trump’s claim that noise from wind turbines causes cancer.
Both GOP senators from Iowa pushed back on Trump’s false claims, with Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) saying the remark was “idiotic.”
“[Trump’s] comments on wind energy — not only as a president but when he was a candidate — were, first of all, idiotic, and it didn’t show much respect for Chuck Grassley as the grandfather of the wind energy tax credit,” Grassley told reporters last week.
On Sunday, Conway tweeted that he was a loyal subscriber of The Washington Post and that he would pay extra to see “Democracy Dies in Redactions” on the masthead the day that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report is released.
When a Twitter user reacted by asking “Why do you pay to get lied to? I read that garbage just to stay abreast of what all the mainstream propaganda rags are pushing but would never willingly give any of them a dime,” Conway fired back: “You’re right. Windmills cause cancer.”
