In unveiling her Green New Deal plan in 2019, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said one way to curb greenhouse emissions was to get rid of the “farting cows.”
Speaking in Arizona on Saturday, President Donald Trump recalled that moment, and also likened the whole Green New Deal to cattle, but in a different way.
“What they’re asking for is incredible,” Trump said during his long speech at the Turning Point USA conference.
“The Green New Deal, going to destroy our country, this Green New Deal. It’s green new bulls-t. That’s what it is. It’s bulls–t.”
“No more windows in buildings because [of the] environment,” Trump continued. “I always did great with these buildings, that the bigger the window, the better I did, the bigger those windows.”
“I wanted floor-to-ceiling windows, but they say you can’t do that anymore. We don’t want any more windows. It’s going to be real hard to sell apartments, I think. We have a beautiful apartment, and for environmental reasons, we have not put windows in the building. Oh great. Well, that sounds good,” Trump said mockingly.
“These people are crazy,” he added. “Whatever happened to cows, remember they were going to get rid of all the cows? They stopped that, people didn’t like that. Remember?”
“You know why they were going to get rid of all the cows?” said Trump. ”People will be next. People will be in there.”
Trump reversed some trends in America’s energy habits. For one thing, America became an exporter of fossil fuels during his watch. And under Trump, America’s greenhouse gas emissions continued to decline.
During that part of the speech, Trump also broadened his attack to include Republicans in Name Only, or RINOs, who he said were complicit in pushing the liberal agenda.
“Sadly, even in many red states, the RINOs are letting the radical left have their way on everything. In fact, I have to say this, in many cases, these weak Republicans or RINOs, these weak Republicans are worse. They’re worse than Democrats,” he said.
“And I’ll tell you what, they’re going to be defeated as sure as you’re sitting there, they’re going to be defeated in the primaries by real Republicans.”
