Donald Trump on Wednesday swept into Scotland's parliament to demand the country end plans for an offshore wind farm he fears will spoil the view at his exclusive new $750-million-pound ($1.2-billion) golf resort...
"Scotland, if you pursue this policy of these monstrous turbines, Scotland will go broke," he said. "They are ugly, they are noisy and they are dangerous. If Scotland does this, Scotland will be in serious trouble and will lose tourism to places like Ireland, and they are laughing at us."Although if Scotland went bankrupt...repeatedly... it would then have something in common with Trump. And Trump sure thinks people are laughing at other people a lot.
It's almost as if there just might be some projection going on.
Yeah, projection is a strong possibility:
When challenged to produce hard evidence about his claims on the negative impact of turbines, Trump said: "I am the evidence, I am a world class expert in tourism."
The public gallery burst into laughter.[cross-posted at Firedoglake]
