Donald Trump does not understand science, which he’s made abundantly clear throughout his time in office. The man who thinks that injecting disinfectant in a patient’s body to cure them of a virus has no business involving himself in anything that requires science to understand.
Setting aside the fact that energy is not something we store in buckets and can build up to use later, Democrats have nothing to do with the power companies doing daily blackouts for a short time each year to reduce strain on the power grids. By the way, if Trump “gave America energy,” and California is in America, why would they not have all these barrels of energy stored away, too?
The blackouts are not, as Trump says, related to energy dependence. The blackouts are a strategy to avoid forest fires caused by an overloaded power grid and that strategy works much better than sweeping the forest floors. After the devastation of the forest fires in California under Trump’s presidency, one would think he might understand that. Obviously, he doesn’t.
Of course, that should be no surprise coming from a man who believes that windmills cause cancer and that relying on wind energy means you can’t watch TV when the wind isn’t blowing. Trump has proven over and over again that science isn’t his strong suit, and his advisors should really steer him away from the topic. If they stopped him from talking about subjects he doesn’t understand, he wouldn’t need a Twitter account.
Twitter, for their part, was stunned by Trump’s incompetence. Read some of their comments below:
