Before the 2020 election, then-President Trump targeted the Green New Deal during a phone interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity, falsely telling the host that it would require builders to use “tiny little windows.” Trump said at the time, “I mean they literally want to take buildings down and rebuild them with tiny little windows, OK, little windows so you can’t see out, you can’t see the light.” but he went further than that.
Trump held a rally in Phoenix, Arizona, hosted by Turning Point USA. The twice-impeached one-term president droned on with false claims about the election while listing his grievances. Trump just regurgitated his old rhetoric and used the same dangerous lies that led to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol. Trump referred to Democrats as Communists, targeted the media, and feigned to be a victim of a wild-eyed and debunked conspiracy theory when President Joe Biden defeated him over eight months ago in both the electoral and popular vote.
The crowd, at one point, even began a “lock her up” chant when Trump brought up his former rival Hillary Clinton. The former guy even lashed out at the thought of systematic racism to the largely white crowd. Trump is good at starting culture wars, but that’s about it.
But then he ramped up his lie about the Green New Deal, and honestly, it’s hard to translate. Trump called the deal the “Green new bullshit,” then falsely claimed it would result in the abolition of windows, cows, and eventually people. “No more windows in buildings,” he said, then he launched into a rambling rant.

Windows are never mentioned in the 14-page Green New Deal, and it does not ban cows — or people. Trump is just being dramatic again while spinning tales in-between ‘sir stories.’ And for the life of me, I do not understand why anyone is buying the bullshit that’s coming out of his anus-shaped mouth. He’s so full of shit; we’re going to have to affix a toilet flush on his jaw.
